CWA Meeting – May 22nd

One year ago this month, the Chester Water Authority Board voted unanimously to decline the proposal of the Aqua America, a for profit water company, to buy CWA’s assets and customers. The CWA Board recently agreed to participate in discussions with the Chester City government to discuss ways to assist the City financially without selling CWA’s customers and assets.

The Act 47 coordinators (Econsult Solutions, Inc.) who were appointed in 1995 by the Pennsylvania Department of Community & Economic Development (DCED) to oversee the finances of the City of Chester have been very critical of the City for engaging in this dialogue with CWA and have recommended  in a recent report that the City try to force a sale of CWA’s customers and assets to a for profit company. Attached you will find a copy of the Act 47 Coordinators  report and also a copy of CWA’s comments responding to their report. 

There is a public meeting scheduled for Tuesday May 22, 2018 at 7:00PM at Chester City Hall for Econsult to present their report.  The stated purpose of this public meeting is to receive public comments on their report.

Dear Residents,

Tax season is upon us, which means everyone should have a heightened awareness in regards to possible scams. Please be aware and not provide any information to anyone over the telephone, via email, or fax.

Criminals have been changing tactics, which in turn, can convince unsuspecting citizens to give personal information such as your date of birth, social security number, address, and telephone number.

Wardrobes for Work Program

Wardrobes for Work Program Offers Free Business Attire to Local Residents with Open House on Friday, September 8th from 10 am – 2pm
Wardrobes for Work seeks to help those who are entering-or re-entering the workplace
by offering them free professional attire

ASTON, PA – The Wardrobes for Work program will be giving away hundreds of gently used men’s and women’s business casual attire and business suits to local residents – free of charge – during an open house at Neumann University on Friday, September 8th from 10 am to 2 pm. The Wardrobes for Work program is designed to provide support and assistance to Delaware Valley residents in need of workplace suitable clothing but who may face a variety of financial challenges.

“Wardrobes for Work was created to remove one of the financial challenges – having workplace appropriate attire — that individuals may face when they are going on job interviews, reentering the workforce, starting a new job, or maintaining their existing work wardrobe,” said Danielle McNichol, General Counsel and Director of the Center for Leadership at Neumann University. “Through the generosity of many local businesses, residents, and government offices, we have collected thousands of articles of work clothing over the past few months in a variety of sizes. We want to help individuals further their careers by giving them access to the workplace attire they need to succeed.”

The Wardrobes for Work program was initiated by Neumann University’s Center for Leadership earlier this year and offers a range of men’s and women’s business suits, dress suits, and casual workplace attire. In order to ensure that enough clothes are available in a variety of sizes, individuals will be limited to three outfits during the open house, which will take place on Neumann University’s campus on the second floor of the Rocco A. Abessinio Building.

Neumann University is easily accessible by SEPTA and the campus is a stop on the 114 Bus Route. To plan your trip via public transit, please visit www.septa.org/m/maps/trip.html.

Over the past several months, dozens of local businesses and law firms, the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce, and Delaware County government offices have helped collect thousands of articles of clothing by placing workplace attire donation boxes in their offices.

Individuals who are unable to make the open house but are in need of workplace attire are encouraged to schedule an appointment by emailing mcnichod@neumann.edu or by calling 610-358-4528. Businesses that would like to host a collection box and individuals who would like to make a donation are encouraged to visit the Center for Leadership’s website http://neumannpublicsafety.com/donation-programs/.

Honoring Hometown Heros

The Borough hopes to launch a streetscape project to honor hometown military veterans by hanging Hometown Hero flags throughout the borough in May 2018 until the Holiday Season starts. Once the flags come down from display, it will go to the ordering borough family.

Since a minimum of 40 flags is required, please contact the Borough Office at (610) 874-7317 for additional information and to sign up. The Borough will be placing the order in Spring of 2018.

License Your Dog in PA

license
All dogs three months or older must be licensed by Jan. 1 of each year. Violators can be cited with a maximum fine of $300 per violation, plus court costs.
An annual license is $8.50 and a lifetime license is $51.50. If the animal is spayed or neutered, the annual fee is $6.50 and lifetime is $31.50. Discounts are available to older adults and people with disabilities.
The small license fee helps protect the millions of dogs in the state by funding the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture Bureau of Dog Law Enforcement.
Dog licenses are available from your local county treasurer and other licensing agents.
Reasons for dog licensing:
• It’s the law. All dogs three months and older must have a current license.
• If your dog gets lost, a license is the best way to get him back. A license helps animal control and shelters identify your dog and get him back home safely.
• The cost of a license is less than the penalty for being caught without one. Owners who fail to license their dogs could face a fine of up to $300 for each unlicensed dog.
• License fees support animal control. The annual fee you pay to license your dog helps keep shelters running and supports the work of the Bureau of Dog Law Enforcement, which is responsible for ensuring the welfare of dogs, regulating dangerous dogs and overseeing annual licensing and rabies vaccinations.

State of Emergency —Snow

  • Dear Residents of the Borough of Upland,
    “Effective from 6 AM Tuesday, March 14th to 8 PM Tuesday evening, Mayor Michael J. Ciach has declared a snow emergency for the Borough of Upland anticipating the arrival of winter storm Stella that could potentially drop 8-12 inches of snow to our area or more. The heavy snow could make many roads impassable and may produce widespread power outages due to the weight of the snow on tree limbs and power lines. We are requiring as a condition of the state of emergency that all non-essential vehicles remain off the roads to allow our first responders, public safety and emergency management personnel to respond to any emergencies. Further, we ask that all emergency routes be cleared of vehicles so that the plows are able to clear the snow from the streets and wherever possible please park your vehicles in your driveways or off the roads to help our plowing efforts”.
  • Council Meeting for tonight has been cancelled.
