this our biggest yard sale ever!  


Walking Path  

The walking path has been a great addition to our town.  I have seen many of you enjoying some of these nice 

spring days.  Please note there are signs posted around the walking path detailing items that are prohibited on the walking 

path.  We will have a ribbon cutting / dedication at the Carnival on June 11th 


Basketball Court 

A fence has been recently installed around the basketball court.  This will help to keep basketballs inside the court 

and the players safe. 


Grass Clippings  

It has been reported that individual are blowing the grass clippings onto the road.  This is a direct violation of the 

Stormwater Management Ordinance.  Any individuals who blow grass clippings on the road will be issued citations, and 

mandated to clean the debris from the street.  


Mailbox Repair 

If your mailbox is leaning forward, hanging over the street, it is in need of repair.  Please take this time repair / 

replace any damage mailboxes.

these individuals, please report them to the Police.  There have also been reports of kids darting across the streets in bikes.  

Lets work together for the safety of all involved and work to have the kids ride their bikes in appropriate areas.  If you are 

a parent of one of the individuals causing the damage, be aware that you will be receiving the citations for their actions

Grass Ordinance 

No person, firm, partnership, corporation or other entity owning or having an interest in any real estate with the 

East Prospect Borough shall permit any grass that is not edible nor planted for some useful or ornamental purpose to grow 

or remain on such premises, including any portion of the premises occupied by a street or alley, so as to exceed a height of

restricted to a height of 6 inches except where such weeds or vegetation are not edible or are not planted for some useful

Spring Cleaning 

It that time of year when the weather breaks and we can all do a little spring cleaning.  Take this opportunity to 

clean up any trash or wood piles in your yard.  Animals like skunks, possums, and rodents love to make homes in those 

piles.  The Borough will be enforcing the junk ordinances and recommend you clean up any problem areas right away.
