Here's a simple checklist as the winter season begins:

* If you have a portable basketball net, now is the time to start making arrangements to move it away from the street so it does not interfere with snow plows. This is just one minor thing residents can do to make the Township's job a little easier in performing winter maintenance.

* Make sure your house address number is positioned high enough to be viewed from the street. Also make sure the address sign is kept visible if there is a snow accumulation.

* Keeping sidewalks safe is an important winter concern. Please clear snow, sleet and ice from sidewalks in front of your property no more than 24 hours after a storm.

* Please do not shovel, blow or plow the snow from your driveway and/or sidewalks into the street.

* Snow Emergencies are announced on WFMZ and this website. Also: Click here for a full guide to preparing for winter emergencies.

Please be advised that the Township has been contacted by USDA regarding the confirmation of the Spotted Lanternfly and added to the area of quarantine effective September 21st, 2017 due to the confirmed present of the invasive Spotted Lanternfly. The quarantine is an important legal designation. The quarantine order directs residents and municipal authorities to follow guidelines to prevent the movement of Spotted Lanternflies at any stage of development. This includes inspecting all wood and vegetation that might leave a quarantined municipality, in addition to inspecting vehicles, trailers, and other mobile equipment prior to moving it out of a quarantined area.

The Spotted Lanternfly is an invasive that is new to the United States. Spotted Lanternflies are native to Southeast Asia, but they have been introduced to other areas of Asia as well - including Korea, where Spotted Lanterflies are a major pest to agriculture. Spotted Lanternflies are reproducing quickly in areas of southeastern Pennsylania and have become a major threat to Pennsylvania's agriculture and forestry industries.

The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture general quarantine imposes limitations for moving the following items from the quarantine area: * Any living life stage of the Spotted Lanternfly * Brush, debris, bark or yard waste * Landscaping, remodeling or construction waste * Logs, stumps or any tree parts * Firewood of any species * Packing materials like wood crates * All plants and plant parts * Outdoor household articles like RV's, lawnmowers, chairs, grills, tarps, tile, stone,lumber and trucks or other vehicles not stored indoors.

However, you can still move these items and similar items if you complete the Certification Checklist found at the link below. Plant nursery, mulch producers or other similar commercial enterprise should contact the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture regarding the necessary compliance agreement.
