Residents that have sustained any type of damage/loss from the recent flooding events.
The Borough officials have been working closely with the County Office Of Emergency Management and have done our due diligence making sure that if and when any financial assistance is made available that you will have the opportunity to apply. We are currently awaiting for direction from FEMA as they are currently reviewing the preliminary data. It is not guaranteed that funding will become available, however we are remaining hopeful.
In the meanwhile you should have contacted your insurance company, if you did and were denied keep that notification, document and keep track all expenditures and start to compile quotes for the repairs so you will be ahead of what most likely will be required. This will help to speed the process.
We will provide further information as soon as becomes available. ... See MoreSee Less

Borough officials are currently assessing damages that occurred throughout the community from the recent storm events that has affected several areas of our community. There has been and will be more assessment teams visiting the affected areas. We have been working with County, State and Federal Officials to determine what type of assistance will be available to our residents. In case federal or other funding becomes available and in order to serve out residents, we would appreciate it if you could provide us the following information: name, address, estimate of cost in damages, and contact information. The best way to provide us this information would be to send it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org It could also be dropped off to the front office of the Borough Hall. As a reminder we suggest that you document all damages with pictures for any future claim.
