Winter is upon us and the snow plows and our road crew will be out.
Per ORDINANCE 2014-01 - parking is restricted and placing property (i.e. basketball hoops) on or along townships roads during any snowfall or weather emergency is prohibited and could carry a $25 fine.
The road crews main objective is clearing the roads to allow safe travel. If your vehicle is left on the street this impedes clearing the roadway. All vehicles left on the roadway will receive one (1) warning. Future failure to remove vehicles during a storm will result in the $25 fine.
Any questions call the Road Supervisor at 570-374-4258.

went off without a hitch on Tuesday, November 11, 2014 at 11 am.
Approximately 250 people attended, if you were unable to be there...do go to the East Snyder Park and take a look. This memorial is so meaningful to those who served and a perfect way for each of us to be reminded of the sacrifices made allowing us to live in the
Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.
Take a look below at a few photos from the site!
Love the way it looks and want to purchase a brick for your favorite vet, see below!

Hard to Recycle Items – the link below will produce a two page document with locations that accept those unusual or hard to recycle items like: CFL light bulbs, paint, flower pots and trays, electronics, etc.
Unfortunately leaf collection has ended!
Due to the recent storm and the impending storm headed our way for this week (12/7/14 - 12/13/14), the road crew will be unable to reassemble the leaf collection equipment.
If you have leaves you are welcome to take them to the compost site and add to the leaf pile.
While sooooo much good is noted above there is also the bad....there are some who
have no respect for all the time, effort and money people put into making and keeping things nice for our residents.
The good...Penn Township provides a compost site for all. Providing a place, easily accessible to all, to get rid of all the unwanted yard waste. Penn Township then grinds and prepares these materials to provide mulch and compost FREE to all.
The bad....what do we get for that, we get all the crap that does not belong at the compost site. Your roofing shingles, your cinder blocks, your transport containers, your flower pots and garbage bags, your treated wood and construction waste etc...this is what will ruin this free service for all of us. Remember this is YOUR compost site, while the police patrol it as they can, you can report any illegal or even suspicious activity. Violators will be prosecuted. If it's not yard waste material, then it is littering!
The good...WOW, have you been to the new park restrooms? This was an 80K project that happened because of the generosity and voluntarism of a select few, who worked their tales off to provide a nice clean modern restroom. What could be better then to have a great day at the park with your sports team, your family for a picnic, moms and their children at the play set, a company picnic, a great place to just hang out with friends.... and boy o boy, what if you need to go to the bathroom, taaadaaaa, there just happens to be a great restroom!
The bad...some have still not learned mature bathroom etiquette. Again, these bathrooms belong to the users of the park...if you see inappropriate behavior by anyone of any age you need to report what you see. I so believe in karma....you can't continue to do wrong and get away with it, just so you know!
Remember, Penn Township belongs to all of us,
let's not allow a few to ruin all the good we have.
East Snyder Park News…
The latest project COMPLETED at the East Snyder Park is the veteran's memorial monument. This monument will complete an area near the entrance to the park that will be pleasing to the eye and have special meaning to many. The monument will be a perfect way to honor and salute those who sacrificed so much, enabling each of us to live in the land of the free and the home of the brave!
The East Snyder Regional Recreation Association has organized a monogrammed brick sale that will help to fund the completion of the project. All monogrammed bricks will be installed around the base of the monument and will permanently show your support of your favorite veteran(s).
