Community Notifications

The Borough offers this Community Information Service dedicated to helping you stay connected to the information that matters most to you.

The Borough will provide messages of a general interest to local residents relating to both emergent issues and community activities. Registrants can choose whether these messages go to a cell phone, to an email address, or both. In addition to these general notifications, residents can choose to receive targeted information by registering for one of our interest groups.
