GOVERNMENT

BOROUGH COUNCIL MEETINGS HELD AT FIRE STATION – UPDATED SEPTEMBER, 2021

Starting October 2021 until further notice, council will resume all meetings at the West Mayfield Volunteer Fire Department.  

BOROUGH

SPRING & SUMMER

NO GRASS CLIPPNGS AND LEAVES ON ROADWAYS

Residents are warned, it is illegal in the Commonwealth and West Mayfield Borough to blow grass clippings and leaves into the street. If you do, you are required to remove them immediately from the street when finished. Grass clippings and leaves left in the street are a severe roadway hazard to vehicles, especially motorcycles and bicycles. Additionally, this material gets washed away by storm water and deposited in the water system. This causes storm drains to clog and back up causing flooding. The grass also releases nitrogen into the water system which is not good for the quality of our water.

 

PARK SHELTERS

The park season officially begins the Friday before Memorial Day. Park hours are from sunrise to sunset. Park shelters may only be reserved between the Friday immediately before Memorial Day through Labor Day. Reservations can be made up to one (1) year in advance on a first-come basis.

FALL

LEAF COLLECTION

Leaf collection will begin in West Mayfield on Nov. 1.  To arrange for pick-up, call the municipal building at (724) 843-8330 and leave a message. All leaves must be raked to the side of the road for collection. Leaves placed in bags won’t be accepted.

 

WINTER

SNOW PLOWING & WALKWAYS

The borough maintenance department is committed to keeping roadways clear and passable during all weather events. Residents are asked to keep vehicles off roadways when possible and to clear their roadways of obstacles that might affect snow plowing.

Due to the high cost of road salt, the borough does not salt alley ways. Sand is used instead. However, if an alley way is impassible due to icy conditions please contact the borough.

The borough maintains all walkways on its property. By ordinance, residents are responsible for keeping their walkways clear and passable.

 

ALL YEAR

NEWSLETTER – PRINT EDITION

Editions of this newsletter will be mailed to borough residents, and they will be available at the Borough Building (4609 W. 8th Ave.)

WEST MAYFIELD EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT

The borough’s Emergency Management Program oversees 4 basic phases of emergency management: mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery. The Mayor and Council work very closely with the Borough’s Emergency Management team to provide the support that is needed to be effective in all phases.

The borough’s Emergency Management Coordinator is Bill Heaton. Please contact Mr. Heaton if you would like to volunteer on our Emergency Management team.
