Borough Ordinances and Pennsylvania statue (53 P.S. §46801) dictate that property owners are responsible for replacement of all curb and sidewalks abutting property. If curb and sidewalk work for which you are responsible is not completed in a timely manner, the Borough will hire an experienced contractor and have needed repairs completed on your behalf.
If a Borough hired contractor completes your curb and sidewalk work, you will receive an invoice within thirty (30) days of work completion; this invoice may reflect legal fees and prevailing wage rates incurred by the Borough. Payment can be remitted within thirty (30) days of receipt of the invoice. A payment schedule may be available. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 215-368-1691 to inquire.
