  • Snow Removal Information

     

    THINK SNOW!

    With the approach of the possibility of accumulating snow, Mountville Borough asks for your patience and cooperation during a snow event.  Please remember the following tips to assist our operators to be as efficient as possible in the snow removal process:

    • If you have driveways and garages, park your vehicles off street. This will allow the snow removal team to clear the Borough streets curb to curb and helps prevent having your vehicle(s) plowed in.
    • Unfortunately, it is impossible for snowplows to avoid having snow placed at the bottom of driveways. It will be helpful if you shovel snow in your driveway to the right side of your driveway (as you face the road).  In addition, clear the area immediately to the left of your driveway which will allow the plow to unload before reaching your driveway and avoid the bulk of the snow to be pushed back onto the driveway.
    • Do not shovel, blow, or plow the snow from your driveway and/or sidewalk into the roadway at any time. This creates hazardous driving conditions and is a violation of both State and Borough laws.
    • Mountville Borough has an ordinance that states that a pathway of at least three feet (3’) in width must be cleared within 24 hours after the snow has ceased. There are penalties that may apply if this ordinance is not obeyed. This is for the safety of all pedestrians, especially our school children.
    • Please keep storm drains opened and fire hydrants cleared that are near your residence.
    • Make sure you have emergency supplies for your entire household in case you end up having to remain in your home for a few days. Be a good Samaritan and check on your elderly neighbors to see if they need someone to run errands or remove the snow on their property.

    Many thanks for your cooperation and assistance!

  • Mountville Borough Annual Yard Sale

    Want to get rid of your “treasures” or find some new ones?

    The annual Mountville Community Yard Sale is the perfect way to accomplish this!

    Saturday, September 15, 2018

    (No Yard Sale Permit is required on this day.)

     

     

  • Permit Information

    Now is the time of year when you may consider having a garage or yard sale.  In addition, there are also businesses who may come knocking at your door to offer you their goods or services.  Here is some important information regarding door-to-door solicitation and yard/garage sales that you should be aware of.

    Solicitation Permits Are Required

    Under Mountville Borough Ordinance, persons soliciting within the Borough are required to obtain a permit through the West Hempfield Police Department. Exceptions include: non-profit organizations (e.g. Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Lion Clubs, Rotary, etc.), school children selling items for school, and insurance and real estate agents licensed by the State.  Each solicitor is required to display their permit in a manner that is visible to those from whom they are soliciting.  Solicitation may occur Monday through Saturday, between the hours of 9:00 AM and 9:00 PM, except by prior appointment.  In order to protect you from unwanted solicitation, if a solicitor at your door does not have identification, please contact the West Hempfield Police Department at (717) 285-5191 from 8:00 AM until 4:30 PM, Monday thru Friday, (or at 800-957-2677 after hours), to determine their status.

    Yard/Garage Sale Permits

    Thinking of having a yard or garage sale?  While they are permitted within the Borough, there are adopted regulations governing them.

    • A yard/garage sale permit (at a cost of $5.00) must be secured from the Borough Office not less than seven (7) days prior to the sale. Borough ordinances state that it is unlawful to hold a yard sale without first obtaining a permit.
    • Only two (2) yard/garage sales are permitted per address per year.
    • Yard/garage sales may be held only between the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM.
    • No yard/garage sale can be conducted for a period of longer than two (2) consecutive days.
    • Yard/garage sales may offer goods to be sold that are personal belongings of the applicant.
    • Only one four square-foot sign is permitted advertising the sale with the sign being located at the premises where the sale occurs. Advertising must be removed upon the completion of the sale.
