October 2019 Newsletter
Trick-or-Treat will be Thursday October 24th from 6:00 until 7:30.
Once again, all back streets will be closed for the short time during trick-or-treat.
We would like to thank the Saegertown Vol. Fire Dept. for providing traffic control during the event.
In addition to individual houses, several of the area churches sponsor Trunk-or-Treat events.
The Borough initiated a Facebook page to provide residents with information, particularly during the construction of the roundabouts and the bridge replacement. We also used it for alerts and updates, such as water leaks. Unfortunately, due to inappropriate comments, name calling, misinformation and unacceptable language, mostly by non-residents of the Borough, we have closed our Facebook page. It is with regret we had to take this action. Hopefully we can bring it back up in the near future.
Use website for information:
Go to the Borough website (www.saegertownpa.com) for alerts, updates and newsletters. Also, all information, forms, and ordinances are posted on the site, along with tons of useful information.
Here’s what we’ve done this year:
The Borough has completed many successful projects this past year!
-Mill Street, Edwards Alley and part of Washington Street were paved this year.
-Bell, Parkview, Lynnhaven, Ross, Valleyview and Windvale Drives were all seal coated.
-We demolished the old Salt Building and constructed a new one.
-The Park next to the south roundabout was finished.
-We had the trees trimmed near the south entrance to town to provide a better view of
French Creek and the lighted bridge
-We had the dead and dying trees at the North roundabout removed, and replaced them
with 52 new heartier Norway Spruce Trees. (thanks to the Jordan Family Foundation
for sponsoring part of this project)
-All parks: town square, entrance sign and roundabouts were upgraded.
-We drilled a new test well as the initial stage of developing an additional water well.
-We installed new carpet and tile in the office to replace the 15-year-old ones.
-We continue to support economic progress in the Borough.
-Donated the Island south of town to the “Conservancy” to protect its natural beauty in the future.
The Borough has been involved in, and supported the following projects that have provided jobs and economic support to the Borough:
-Lord’s 80-million-dollar expansion
-Deist Industries moving into the Borough at the old Tru-Weld building.
-Additions of the Pharmacy and Restaurant to the Plaza.
-Remodeling of the old Knuth Complex.
After October 1st. we will start to suck up leaves. Please remember that they must be raked in rows –
next to the road – not on it. We cannot pick up wet leaves. If they get wet, turn them over a couple times to dry them out. And Remember: We will pick them up when we have time.
Ditches and Culverts on Saeger-Heights:
It is the property owner’s responsibility – keep ditches clear from leaves and debris.
Rake them to the top of the ditch and we will suck them up.
The Borough will NO LONGER pick-up brush after October 15th until next spring.
Only Limbs from storms can still be placed by the streets, and we will pick them up when we have time.
Hunting in the Borough:
Hunting is permitted on the east side of the railroad tracks under the following conditions: you must not be within 150 yards of a residence or building, you must have the landowner’s permission, you must be shooting in a safe direction, and you must obey all Penna. Game Commission rules.
Flags and Decorations:
The flags you see decorating Main Street, and the American Flags decorating Main,
Erie and South streets were purchased by the Jordan Family Foundation and
the Saegertown Women’s Improvement Club. We really appreciate these projects
that everyone in town, and visitors, can enjoy.
It’s that time of year. Starting November 1st, and continuing until April the follow is in effect:
-No Parking on Saeger-Heights: Bell, Parkview, Lynnhaven, Ross, Valleyview, Windvale
-No Parking from midnight until 7:00 am on Main Street and Erie Streets.
