Furloughs End

Tuesday, August 18th at the Mayors’ request, the Council unanimously voted to end the employee Furlough program effective August 24th. The Furlough program was instituted on July 10, 2009 to reduce expenditures and assist in balancing the budget.

Mayor Hipp stated “In these difficult economic times it’s important to maintain services to our residents while keeping a lid on property tax increases. However I know the furloughs have caused a disruption to our residents and a hardship to the employees who participated in the program. As a result of the monies the Borough received from EnCap, we are looking at a modest budget increase 1.49%.”

New trash and recycling schedules will be mailed to residents next week that will include leaf pickup and will cover the remaining months of 2009.

All Borough administrative offices will be open 5 days a week from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM.

For further information please visit the Borough’s Web Site at or call DPW at 201-460-3038.
