2020 Christmas Market: Although the German Style Christmas Market was cancelled this year, there will be a Holiday Market at the Factoryville Fire Hall on December 5th from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm. Mask wearing and social distancing will be observed. This event helps support the Factoryville Fire Company Ladies Auxillary.
Mathewson Park Recreation Improvement Plan: Our previous grantwriter, Sadie Rozenberg, before she resigned to take a councilperson position, submitted a plan to the DCNR Park Rehabilitation and Development grant program, and our park was selected! This project will include a renovation of the basketball courts to resurface and redesign two different courts: a larger, upgraded basketball court and a pickleball court. Additionally, the park has 3 play pockets for younger children but lacks one for older children. This plan includes a play pocket for the 5 to 12 age range. As this project takes off, the Borough would like to make this a community opportunity. Volunteers will be welcome! Contact the Borough Hall for updates. 570-945-7484.
Our 4th annual Factoryville Christmas Market was cancelled this year, but we have plans to make next year BIG!! We received a grant from and are now funded in part by the Wyoming County Room Tax Fund and the Endless Mountains Visitors Bureau! This grant was to be used for the 2020 season but was granted for use in 2021! If you would like to participate in planning, volunteering, or have ideas, contact the Borough office at 570-945-7484.

Rental Inspection Ordinance: Factoryville Borough Council passed a rental inspection ordinance at their May 8, 2019 meeting. Due to some revisions that needed to be made the ordinance was updated on December 11, 2019. Applications should be completed for EACH UNIT within each building owned. An addendum is also required, signed by the landlord and tenants. This addendum includes information about who is responsible for basic care of the property including lawn, sidewalks, etc. Furthermore, it is an agreement that the tenants will follow the listed ordinances already in place within the Borough and will allow reasonable inspections with the proper notice by the landlord. The paperwork necessary for a license to be issued is due May 11, 2020 to avoid daily fines of no less than $100 and no more than $1000 per rental unit, per day (Section 11.4, Ordinace 2019-4). For questions or concerns, please call the Borough Hall 570-945-7484 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org Be sure to read the ordinance and include all necessary information in the application. The direct link on this website can be found here.
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.
