…speaking of Sewers and Money

 In 2017 the Strasburg Borough Authority began a project of improvements to the sewer system. The major portion of the project consisted of lining critical areas of the sewer lines and manholes.  The intent of the project was to prevent pipe failures and to greatly reduce the infiltration of ground water.  The project is more fully described in the Borough’s 2017 Newsletter. Although the project took considerably longer than originally expected, it is now complete except for paying its costs.

The sewer improvement project was financed by a $ 2.77M, 30-year bond issue. That incurs annual debt service payments for the term of the issue.  When budget projections were done for 2018 – 2023, it was clear that without additional revenue, the Sewer Fund would rapidly become insolvent.  The Authority analyzed several ways in which rates could be increased to avoid annual balances too low to deal with small emergencies.  At that time the best solution was based on an annual 8% rate increase each year from 2018 – 2023, and that plan has been followed.

The Authority has enacted an 8% increase that begins with the fourth quarter of 2019. Only the sewer rates will be going up by that amount.  However, the Authority will closely monitor actual fiscal circumstances as they develop and will keep any future increases to a necessary minimum dictated by revenue and costs.

SENATE BILL No. 607

Never heard of it, right?

Bill No. 607 would allow ALL PA municipal police, not just PA state police, to utilize radar for speed enforcement. 

At the current time Pennsylvania’s municipal police are the only law enforcement officials in the country not allowed to use this tool. 

Please take a 2 minutes out of your day to watch this video and see why this bill could make Strasburg a safer place and save lives!
