Borough Council Meeting Canceled

Due to the snow and work requirements several borough council members will not be available to attend tonight’s monthly scheduled council meeting. 

  As per borough code, there would not be enough members in attendance to have a qualified quorum, accordingly there will not be a borough council meeting tonight.

Snow emergency still in effect

May be an image of one or more people and text that says 'NO PARKING DURING SNOW EMERGENCY'

The contracted plow service for the borough is getting a few hours of sleep and will be back out to remove the piles of snow from the snow emergency routes. The snow emergency parking ban is still in effect. I can promise if you are parked on a snow emergency route two things will happen: The first is you will be issued a citation, and the second is your vehicle will be towed by V&M Towing who you can contact at 610.926.3724. With the cold weather and the possibility of more snow later this week it is vital that we can get this snow removed. Once the snow has been removed, I will rescind the snow emergency order.

Snow Emergency

Snow Emergency for the Borough of Bernville will be in effect as of Sunday, January 31, 2021 starting at 6 PM until further notice. Please remove all vehicles from designated Snow Emergency routes. All residents will be notified when the Snow Emergency is lifted. We thank you for your cooperation during this time.

Spoofing email

How to protect your organization against email spoofing

While we all adore Brenda, I promise that she hasn’t sent you an email asking for you to purchase her a gift card. We have been contacted by several people informing us that they have received a spoofing email from the borough looking for gift cards. While I’m sure she would really enjoy the random acts of kindness, please disregard the email.

Snow Emergency lifted as of 8 p.m.

Effective 8 p.m., Thursday, December 17, 2020 the Snow Emergency in Bernville Borough will be lifted. Thank you to everyone who followed the ordinance and moved their vehicles allowing the contracted plow service to due their job in the timely fashion. To those of you that didn’t feel the need to move your vehicles this delays other residents from being able to park along snow routes because of the additional time that it takes to plow around your vehicle. In addition, this is also more costly to the taxpayers. Accordingly, I have directed the Bernville Police Department to, without exception, ticket any and all vehicles not in compliance and to exercise any legal option to remove the vehicles from snow routes.
