As you are aware, the cost of your sewer bill has gone up. Several of you have inquired as to why. The borough is sorry for the increase, but it is out of our control. DCNR- Bureau of State Parks treats the Borough sewage, bills the Borough for that service and controls cost. DCNR has increased the cost that it charges the Borough. We were forced to pass that increased cost on. We encourage you to call and voice your concerns to DCNR by calling 717-787-6640.
