2021 Christmas Market: Although the Factoryville Christmas Market was cancelled last year, it is coming back to the Christy Mathewson Park. It will be held over 3 days this year: December 3rd from 6:00pm to 9:00pm for food (why cook when you can go out to eat and enjoy some holiday cheer!) , music and a tree lighting ceremony! December 4th from 11:00am to 6:00pm, there will be food and drinks (another night you won’t have to cook), music, all kinds of vendors, wreath making, pictures with Santa, elf school, and more! The day will kick off with the 1-mile Ugly Christmas Sweater Run. Ugliest sweaters and fastest times will receive awards. Closing day is December 5th from 11:00am to 4:00pm. Be sure to pick up where you left off or get there before you miss out. Make sure you sing carols on the horse-drawn carriage ride through town too! The Christmas Market is funded in part by the Wyoming County Room Tax Fund and the Endless Mountains Visitors Bureau! If you would like to help plan, volunteer, or become a vendor, please call the Borough Hall or contact Elena O’Connor. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Mathewson Park Recreation Improvement Plan: Our previous grantwriter, Sadie Rozenberg, submitted a plan to the DCNR Park Rehabilitation and Development grant program, and our park was selected! This project includes a renovation of the basketball courts to resurface and redesign two different courts: a larger, upgraded basketball court and a pickleball court. 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.

Rental Inspection Ordinance: Factoryville Borough Council passed a rental inspection ordinance at their May 8, 2019 meeting, amended August 12, 2020. Applications should be completed for EACH UNIT within each building owned. An addendum, signed by the landlord and tenants, is required for an inspection to occur. No license will be granted without a “pass” inspection. This addendum includes information about who is responsible for basic care of the property including lawn, sidewalks, etc as well as how many people are permitted on and in the property premises (Ordinance 2020-3, Section 7.2A). 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 six months prior to the expiration of the previous license. This allows time to schedule an inspection and remedy any issues that need to be corrected. Any violation of this Ordiance may result in a fine of no less than $100 and no more than $1000 per rental unit, per day (Section 11.4, Ordinace 2020-3). For questions or concerns, please call the Borough Hall 570-945-7484 or email: email@example.com 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.
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.
