Christy Mathewson Days: This year we are looking to make some changes to the yearly celebration. It is currently planned for August 10, 2019. If you would like to be involved in planning or volunteering contact the Borough Hall.
New Plow Truck: The Borough was able to buy a new plow truck this year to utilize for next winter. The truck is currently at Bradco Supply in Towanda for the upfit to add the truck bed and the plow.
Christmas Market: As many know, the Factoryville Christmas Market was a rousing success with the vendors, the music, the wineries, the Alpine House and of course, the horse drawn carriage rides. Most of the vendors provided positive feedback and will be returning for the 2019 European Style market. This year we kicked off the Christmas Market with tree decorating and lighting as well as the new Ugly Christmas Sweater 1 mile run. Please check back for 2019 planning meetings. All are welcome.
Rental Inspection Ordinance: Factoryville Borough Council passed a rental inspection ordinance at their May 8th meeting. Landlords should expect information regarding this program to be received by mail. More information can be found under the “Government” heading or by contacting the Borough office: email@example.com or 570-945-7484.
Hometown Heroes Banners: This spring we began the Hometown Heroes Banners program. This program has been very successful, and the banners will be displated starting as early as Memorial Day 2019! Donations towards this wonderful program are welcome.
The Factoryville Borough and Clinton Township Joint Municipal Sewer Authority was highlighted in the Pennysylvania Rural Water Associations quarterly magazine. We were honored to be named “Featured Wastewater System” in the Fall issue of their magazine “Keystone Tap”. The PDF version of “Keystone Tap” is available below. We are featured on pages 44 and 45.
Please come to our monthly meetings to see what your elected and appointed officials are accomplishing. The Sewer Authority meets on the second Wednesday each month at 6:00 and Borough Council meets on the same night at 6:30 or immediately following the sewer meeting.
The Borough is awaiting information on several grant applications for improvements to our two parks.
Our 2012 Act 13 Impact Fee funds were used for fixing stormwater problems in the Borough.
A grant for new bleachers at Christy Mathewson Park is in the final development stages and will be noticeable soon.
The Borough is very proud of the Factoryville Men’s Civic Club for spearheading efforts to install a community sign on SR 6/11. Numerous other organizations contributed to the purchase including a large donation by the PS Bank. Borough resident, Dan Nowakowski is doing an outstanding job managing the content on the sign. To reach Dan, please email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
