Trick or Treat Statement from Mayor Reed

“The Borough of Selinsgrove is committed to promoting the health and safety of our residents. While we will not be holding an “official” Trick or Treat time for Halloween 2020 given the possible impact on the health of participants due to the Covid-19 pandemic the Borough in no way opposes the practice of private trick or treating if it is done safely and in compliance with state and federal guidelines. While no official trick or treating event will be held the Borough will anticipate private Halloween activities to take place between 6:00pm and 8:00pm on Saturday, October 31st. Please do your part to protect the safety of yourself and your community if you do decide to participate.”

Grease and Flushable Wipes: Unforeseen Clogs, Buildup/Back-Ups, and Major Expense

Grease dumped down drain and “flushable” wipes flushed down the drain can be an unforeseen major expense when it comes to your pipes or your neighbor down the street.  Please be responsible and dispose of grease and wipes in the trash.

Businesses: COVID-19 Loan Program (SEDA-COG)
