This year the Township will be working with the Bucks County United Way with their “Stuff the Bus” campaign. We will be a drop off location to collect backpacks and school supplies from Monday, July 17th – Friday, August 11th. The United Way is telling us that more than 20,000 children in Bucks County are struggling to have their basic school supplies met. New supplies can boost a child’s self-esteem and give the child the ability to start school ready and more compelled to learn. If you find yourself at a store in the next month, could you pick up a few extra things to help fill their backpacks? The United Way’s goal is to fill 2220 backpacks this year. STUFF THE BUS

Important News About Open Burning..Effective February 22, 2012 the Township has officially rescinded its Open Burning Policy and will no longer issue permits.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.
