Spring Street Sweeping 2023 – Begins March 27th

Posted on: March 22nd, 2023

Each spring the Public Works Department sweeps the Township streets. Sweeping helps protect our waterways and keeps our neighborhoods clean and livable. Debris on the streets can clog storm drains and pollute our lakes and rivers. We respectfully request that you try to keep vehicles off the street during daytime hours, Monday thru Friday during this time. Thank you.

Spring street sweeping begins in Monday, March 27, 2023 and it takes about 5 weeks to complete.

Which streets will be swept?

All streets owned and adopted by the Township will be swept. Streets in new subdivisions under construction will be the responsibility of the subdivision developer. Private streets are the responsibility of the condominium/townhouse development owner.

  • “No Parking signs” — Crews will post “No Parking” signs at least 24 hours before sweeping residential streets. Parking will be banned from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the day of sweeping.

How can residents help?

To provide efficient and quick sweeping, our equipment needs to get to the curb without obstructions. Please observe the following:

  • Try to avoid Monday to Friday daytime parking on your street if possible.
  • Do not put your garbage/recycling/yard waste containers on the street.
  • Small stones on the curb and sidewalks, can be swept onto the street.
  • Safety is important for everyone, so please watch children carefully when sweepers are on the roadway.

When will the sweeping be finished?

The spring street sweeping program typically takes about 4-5 weeks to complete and could be delayed by cold or wet weather, parked vehicles or excessive amounts of winter anti-skid material.

Your cooperation and patience is greatly appreciated!

York County Hazard Mitigation Update

Click here for the Website and Surveys

Hazard Mitigation, HazMit, is action taken to reduce harm before a disaster.  HazMit saves lives, property, and money.

As the York County Planning Commission updates its HazMit Plan in 2023, we need to hear from municipal leaders, local organizations, and residents throughout York County.  High participation and community awareness means your community is better prepared for the next emergency.

All 72 municipalities in York county are required to participate in updating our HazMit Plan or risk losing opportunities for federal and state funding related to hazard mitigation.

Zions View Road open to two-way traffic and Road Closure on Locust Point Road

Posted on: March 14th, 2023

The road improvement at the Locust Point/Canal Rd Ext/Zions View area are coming to a near end coming soon by the end of April 2023. A permanent signal light will be placed at the intersections of Zions View Road, Locust Point Road and Canal Road. Zions View Road is now open to two-lane traffic and will remain open. This project is permitted by PennDOT since they are state roads. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.

Additionally, turn arounds are provided for the school buses both near the proposed pump station on Canal Road Ext. and before the bridge in Conewago Township.

2022 Food Recovery Infrastructure Grant

Posted on: February 10th, 2023

(Letter from PA Department of Environmental Protection) Grant Pre-Application Document for Non-Profits

Good morning everyone,

I am thrilled to announce that the second solicitation of the Food Recovery Infrastructure Grant (FRIG) is OPEN. The deadline for this solicitation of FRIG applications is March 17, 2023 at 11:59pm. This grant was announced in the December 3, 2022 PA Bulletin: Pennsylvania Bulletin (pacodeandbulletin.gov). The intent of the Food Recovery Infrastructure Grant is to reduce the amount of fresh, safe, and wholesome foods currently entering the waste stream.

Please forward this e-mail to ALL Municipalities in your Counties. I am also asking our Local Government Liaison to share this information with their municipal contacts in order to get the word out as much as possible. I encourage all to spread the word to any not-for-profit entities or food wholesalers/retailers who work with not-for-profit entities who may be eligible for this grant to let them know of its availability.

This grant will support section 501(c)(3) not-for-profit agencies operating programs within the Commonwealth that provide food to the public (i.e. food shelters, soup kitchens, food banks, etc.) who partner with retailers/wholesalers, grocery stores, agricultural organizations, farms, or cooperatives of foodstuffs operating in the Commonwealth to capture and serve safe and wholesome foods before they become a waste. If you have questions about the eligibility of a potential applicant, please let me know.

Not-for profit entities eligible to apply for this grant must demonstrate the following:

  • The organization’s not-for-profit status
  • The financial stability of the organization
  • The organization must have an existing food utilization/distribution program
  • The experience of the organization in operating a program
  • The current and potential sources for foodstuffs under the proposed program
  • The ability to operate the expanded/enhanced program for the length of the grant demonstration period (3 years after final reimbursement payment)

This grant program can assist these non-for-profit agencies with the costs of equipment necessary to prepare, transport, and serve food acquired from retailers/wholesalers, grocery stores, agricultural organizations, farms, and cooperatives. The maximum grant award cannot exceed $50,000. Examples of eligible equipment include:

  • Refrigerators
  • Freezers
  • Refrigerated/non-refrigerated box trucks
  • Cargo vans
  • Stoves
  • Ovens
  • Pallet jacks
  • Microwaves
  • Dollies
  • Hand forklifts
  • Shipping and installation costs for eligible equipment

A pre-application meeting is mandatory for this grant. Interested applicants should schedule a pre-application meeting with me sooner rather than later. We can schedule in-person or virtual pre-application meetings, whichever is more convenient for the applicant. I encourage Municipality and County Recycling Coordinators to be present for pre-application meetings. A copy of the English version of the pre-application document is attached.

Applications must be submitted through the Department of Community and Economic Development’s electronic single application (ESA) website: https://www.esa.dced.state.pa.us/login.aspx. If anyone has questions about how to complete the on-line application, please call the DCED Customer Service Center at 1-800-379-7448.

Additional information about the FRIG, including a step-by-step instruction guide for completing the on-line FRIG application, a link to the DCED ESA website, the FRIG pre-application document, etc. can be found at the DEP Financial Assistance website: Financial Assistance (pa.gov).

Special consideration will be given to those applicants identified in Environmental Justice (EJ) Areas. DEP identifies an EJ area where 20% or more individuals live at or below the Federal poverty line, and/or 30% or more of the population identify as non-white minority based on data from the United States Census Bureau and the Federal guidelines for poverty.

The DEP website will be updated with FRIG application documents translated into Spanish. Language translation accommodations or services are available should an applicant require them. Please call (717) 787-7382.

Again, applications must be submitted no later than March 17, 2023 by 11:59pm. Applications submitted after the deadline will not be accepted.

Please contact me with any questions and to schedule pre-application meetings.

Thank you,
