“Retire Your Old Glory” at the Ebensburg Municipal Office

Retire Your Old Glory is a community-based program to collect and properly retire American flags when they are no longer usable. Because borough staff are often asked how and where to properly dispose of old flags, Borough Council voted to participate in this program.

The American Legion Post 363 and Ebensburg VFW Post 4963 have generously agreed to sponsor the program by covering the initial set up fees, and Boy Scout Troop 98 has agreed to mange the program on an ongoing basis. They will periodically collect the flags, report the number of flags collected and ceremonially dispose of the flags.

Thanks to all the organizations involved in making this program possible.

PUBLIC HEARING – CANCELLED

**UPDATE** –  The Sheetz hearing has been cancelled for tonight, Monday, February 20th.

Sheetz wishes to sell beer for on premise consumption and to go, and wine to go at the 818 West High Street location. Sheetz must first secure a restaurant liquor license.
