Blood Emergency - The American Red Cross has an emergency need for blood and platelets. Without blood donors, hospitals may not have the blood needed to save lives. We are being told that some hospitals have cancelled provisional surgeries because their type O supply is very low. The Township will be sponsoring a Summer Blood Drive on Friday, July 27th from 2 – 7pm here at the township building (5186 Stump Road). Register today at www.redcrossblood.org Sponsor code: Plumstead Advanced registration is preferred. Please help us spread the word as summer is typically low in donations but high in demand for help.
Thank you in advance for your help!!
Fox Hunt development - ROAD RESURFACING/ WEATHER PERMITTING: Beginning Monday, July 23, 2018, Asphalt Maintenance Solutions L.L.C. will be working on the streets in Fox Hunt at the direction of the Township. This work will include paving notches and a thin layer of hot mix asphalt overlay work. At this time, the work is expected to take a minimum of 3-5 days with completion expected the week of July 23. The new surface will remain “fresh” for a few days so please take care when driving and turning. Please avoid stopping in place and turning the vehicle steering wheel in place.

You may experience delays while work is being done in front of your property and on the streets within the development. Crew members on site will be there to direct traffic and assist motorists. The road will be swept prior to the surface treatment. We request your cooperation by refraining from discharging cut grass and any water onto the road surface from the time of the sweeping until the work is completed.

ATTENTION PLUMSTEAD TOWNSHIP WATER CUSTOMERS: Due to an error at the USPS Bulk Mailing Center in Philadelphia, PA, approximately 400 (of 2500) water bills were inaccurately processed and returned to the township. The 2nd quarter bills were sent out on July 2, 2018.

Important News About Open Burning..Effective February 22, 2012 the Township has officially rescinded its Open Burning Policy and will no longer issue permits. This action is a result of formal notification from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PaDEP) that we are a mandated community under Act 101 and thus any burning is regulated by the state and we cannot supersede its authority. Based on the state law, the only property owners permitted to burn are those considered to be "working farms", defined as the production of agricultural commodities in their unmanufactured state on the premises of the farm operation. Campfires and ceremonial fires are also permitted. Yard waste is NOT permitted to be burned. Yard waste is defined as leaves, grass clippings, garden residue, tree trimmings, chipped shrubbery, and other vegetative materials. Because the Township is a mandated community we are responsible for the enforcement of this Act, and will do what is necessary to ensure that the Township and our residents remain in compliance with it.(Because of the volume of inquiries, we have decided to leave this on the website.)
