March 19, 2021: Letter from Council President, Benjamin Hover

Dear Neighbors in Lansdowne,

 

This spring, as the beautiful song birds return and the flowers bloom, Lansdowne Borough Council is proud that the Lansdowne Renaissance continues with investment in our infrastructure and businesses opening in our downtown. Several major projects are moving from the design stage to the creation stage; some projects are moving from the creation to completion stage.

 

Public Health and Safety

As many in the community have heard, our representatives in Delaware County on the local, County, and state level are advocating for more vaccines to be distributed in Delaware County. Lansdowne Borough Council shares the frustration of many of our residents in acquiring the vaccine. Please find the link to the possibilities to register for the vaccine here:

In the meantime, please remember to Mask up! Even after receiving the vaccine, please remember to mask up and take necessary precautions to not spread the virus.

 

Sewer Fee and Tax Bills

Since the distribution of the tax bills this past January, residents reported discrepancies on their Sewer fees from the previous year. Through consultation with the Borough Tax Collector, Lansdowne Borough Council located the miscalculation and is currently working with Bill Smith, Lansdowne Borough’s Tax Collector to remedy the error.

 

Residents should expect to receive a new Tax Bill from the Tax Collector. And, for most residents, the error will result in a refund of the error.

 

On behalf of council, I would like to thank the residents for their patience as Borough Council, the Mayor,  our Borough Manager, and Tax Collector researched and created a plan to fix the error on the tax bill.

Volunteer Opportunities:

 

While the weather warms, please consider supporting the town we all love by volunteering at several events in our parks and around town.

 

Earth Day

On April 10th, Earth Day, please join Lansdowne Borough in supporting the Darby Creek Valley Association at several clean ups coordinated by the Darby Creek Valley Association in Hoffman Park, Marlyn Park, or Pennock Woods. If you can’t make the event, please consider taking the time to clean up the litter around your home.

To everyone in Lansdowne, please enjoy the fresh air, the spring sunshine, the flowers blooming and a Happy Easter and Happy and Joyous Passover to all of those who celebrate.

 

 

                                    Your neighbor,

 

                                    Benjamin Hover
