HOME-American Rescue Plan (HOME-ARP) Allocation Plan
2021 Annual Action Plan Substantial Amendment

The American Rescue Plan (ARP) was signed into Federal law on March 11, 2021, to provide additional relief to address the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economy, public health, State and local governments, individuals, and businesses. Congress appropriated a portion of ARP funds to be administered through the HOME Program (HOME-ARP) to undertake activities that benefit qualifying individuals and families who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, or in other vulnerable populations.

All citizens of York County are urged to attend a public hearing to discuss the County’s proposed HOME-ARP Allocation Plan, which serves as a substantial amendment to the 2021 York County Annual Action Plan.

PUBLIC NOTICE: In need of Emergency Management Coordinator

Posted on: January 6th, 2023

At this time East Manchester Township with intent to be in joint operations with Manchester Borough and Mount Wolf Borough is in search of an Emergency Management Coordinator to graciously volunteer their time and fill the position of EMA Coordinator.

The Northeastern Municipal Area Emergency Management Agency is formed with a group of citizens from East Manchester Township, Manchester Borough and Mt. Wolf Borough who volunteer their time and services to assist professional agencies during an emergency or in a crisis. They are the “customer service” telephone operators that work “behind the scenes” coordinating communication between agencies, assisting in getting the needs to the workers, which may range from fulfilling the needs of getting food and drink to emergency personnel during a lengthy call out or calling to arrange for specialized equipment and supplies needed on site.

If you are interested in assisting with this volunteer service, please contact Township Manager, Kristie Masemer, at 717-266-4279.

Christmas Tree Pick Up Dates (Jan 14th and 21st 2023)

Posted on: January 6th, 2023

Republic Services will now be collecting Christmas Trees on Saturday, January 14th and January 21st. Please have your trees at the curb for these specific days only.

Other Option: Recycle your Christmas Tree with the York County Solid Waste Authority


The York County Solid Waste Authority will hold a FREE Christmas Tree Recycling Program for all York County residents. Beginning December 26, 2022, residents may bring their tree to the parking lot located directly across the street from the York County Resource Recovery Center in Manchester Township located at 2651 Blackbridge Rd. Residents must remove any ornaments, lights, tinsel and protective bags prior to dropping their tree off. H & H General Excavating will recycle the trees into mulch. This program is a great way for residents to easily dispose of their Christmas tree while reducing waste. The Christmas Tree Recycling Program runs through January 31, 2023. This is the 35th year the Authority has offered the program. York County solid Waste Authority Direct Info Link for Christmas Trees

Many municipalities now offer curbside Christmas tree collection for their residents, as well. Residents should call their municipal office to see if their municipality offers a curbside collection program.

The Authority facilitates responsible solid waste management through an integrated strategy that emphasizes waste reduction, education, recycling and resource recovery. The Authority is the owner of the York County Resource Recovery Center, a Small Load Drop Off Facility, a Recyclable Materials Drop-off Center, Ash Recycling & Processing Facility, the now closed York County Sanitary Landfill which hosts the Hopewell Area Recreational Complex and an Education Center. Direct Link

Directions to the parking lot across from the York County Resource Recovery Center: 

From I-83: Proceed on I-83 to Exit 21.  As you come off the exit ramp, get immediately into the far left turning lane and proceed to stoplight at intersection of Toronita Street and Rt. 30E (you will see the “Round the Clock Diner” at this intersection).

At the stoplight, turn left onto Toronita Street (Toronita turns into Blackbridge Road).  Proceed approximately 1 1/2 miles and follow signs to Christmas Tree Recycling drop-off. 

From Rt. 30: At the stoplight at the intersection of Toronita Street and Rt. 30 (you will see the “Round the Clock Diner” at this intersection), turn north onto Toronita Street (Toronita turns into Blackbridge Road).  Proceed approximately 1 1/2 miles and follow signs to Christmas Tree Recycling drop-off.

Road Closure on Locust Point Road and One-lane on Zions View Road through Summer 2023 and with luck, sooner.

Posted on: November 23rd, 2022

There has been and will continue to be significant road improvements in the Locust Point/Canal Rd Ext/Zions View area. A permanent signal light will be placed at the intersections of Zions View Road, Locust Point Road and Canal Road. During construction, Zions View Road is to remain open as one lane with the temporary signal light. This project is permitted by PennDOT since they are state roads. This has been a long project with an anticipated completion of Summer 2023 due to Columbia Gas and Verizon utility companies preventing the contractor from performing the work as scheduled. Also, the extreme duration of delay is due to a period of de-mobilization as the contractor awaits the re-opening of the PennDOT extended-season paving window on March 1st. East Manchester Township is just as frustrated as the residents, businesses and users of the roads in question. As a result, the Township sent an expressive letter to the Public Utility Commission and copied all of the State Legislatures. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and will continue to cause.

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.

UPDATE: 12/13/22 – The Verizon poles have been removed. Please see the above paragraph as that information is still current. Thank you.
