Code Enforcement

The Borough's Codes Office, part of the Sustainable Community and Economic Planning Department, handles enforcement of the Borough Code that relates to health safety, property maintenance, and public nuisances within the Borough. The Codes Office also handles construction inspection, ensuring that ordinances are enforced according to professional standards in accordance with the Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code, the Pennsylvania Borough Code, and other appropriate statutes of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
