Keeping our streets safe in Taylor Borough.
Taylor Borough Council would like to remind all Taylor residents that, the placement of any objects intended to save or protect parking spaces in front of properties is illegal. This is a citable offense for the residents that placed the object in the streets. Objects placed in the Borough Right-of Ways will be removed and disposed of accordingly. Along with the resident being cited.
While making our streets clean and safe our Department of Public Works has been having problems with homeowners who have portable basketball hoops that hang out beyond the curb lines. The Department has had a few incidents over the years when the trucks catch on the rim or the net of the basketball hoops. Taylor Borough Council is asking all residents to move the basketball hoops away from the roadway so this can be avoided and make it safer for our Department of Public work employees.
Tylor Borough resients are reminded that it is illegal for any person, owner or resident of the borough to deposit, throw or discard snow, slush or other obstructions into the public streets and rights-of-way. Offenders may be subject to a $600 fine. Residents have 24 hours after the snow stops to remove the snow and ice from their sidewalks.
