SEWER PROJECT CONSTRUCTION SCHEDULE & MAP – May 2018

Attention Borough Residents:
RE: Sewer Project Construction Schedule Update – June 20, 2018

Sippel Construction has been working on new mainline construction from Lakeview Rd. north and expect to begin in the 300 block of East Triumph the week of June 25th.  Work will continue both east and west from the 300 block.Sippel’s second crew has been working on South Julian and Ann Street the past week and will begin work on the 400 block of West Triumph St. June 21.  They will be installing new pipe toward Julian from Marian.

Sippel will have personnel contacting homeowners to assist them in locating their home’s sewer lateral for reconnection daily.  Borough staff will also need access to your home to connect pipe-locating equipment to your water line to mark the location for construction.

After the mainline crew has enough new pipe installed additional crews will begin home lateral installation to the property line from the new sewer main.  When lateral installation begins homeowners will receive letters regarding when and how much time they have to replace their line to their home.

Residents will begin seeing other underground utilities marked with various colors of paint and flags on the ground where work is expected to be done.  Please don’t remove marking flags or paint marks.

Some residents are reminded that they may need to have their own lateral replaced within several weeks of placement of their new connection point.  We have already contacted many who will be in this situation and discussed what is needed.

Work will continue through June 2019.

Memorial Day Ceremony – Downtown Ebensburg

EBENSBURG SEEKS MEMORIAL DAY PARADE PARTICIPANTS

Ebensburg – Organizers of Ebensburg’s annual Memorial Day parade are seeking participants for this year’s event on Monday, May 28th at 10:00 a.m. in downtown Ebensburg.

The annual parade and Memorial Day ceremony are sponsored by VFW Post 4963 and American Legion Post 363.

The ceremony will follow the parade at 10:30 a.m. In the case of inclement weather, the parade will not be held and the ceremony will take place inside at the Ebensburg Presbyterian Church, 200 North Center Street at 10:30 a.m.

“Anything people can do to help remember the men and women that have sacrificed is appreciated”, said Robert Slebodnick, Commander of VFW Post 4963. “Ebensburg’s Memorial Day parade and ceremony is a very special tribute to those who have served and sacrificed from the American Revolution to our current generation of service members.”

Any businesses, organization, military service men and women, Boy Scout & Girl Scout Troops, marching bands, Church groups, and classic vehicle owners wishing to participate in the parade and help commemorate this special Memorial Day celebration are to contact the Ebensburg Borough office at 814-472-8780.

WINTER PARKING ENFORCEMENT

WINTER PARKING REGULATIONS RELAXED

Good News! The enforcement of the winter parking regulations within Ebensburg Borough is being relaxed.

The current Ordinance, in place since 1994, requires alternate side parking on many streets between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., and again between 5 p.m. and 8 a.m. It also prohibits parking on many smaller streets between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. Those winter parking restrictions are in effect between December 1st and March 31st.

In the past, the Ordinance was not enforced until the first snowfall each year. After the first snowfall, the Ordinance was enforced each and every day, regardless of weather conditions. These parking restrictions are necessary to allow the public works crew to properly and safely clear the streets of snow. Unfortunately, the regulations caused great inconvenience to the residents.

Today, there are many methods of communicating current information to the residents. Borough Council believes that we can enforce the regulations when necessary, and relax enforcement when possible.

Effective immediately, the winter parking regulations will only be enforced when deemed necessary by staff. A notice will be placed here on the website announcing when the regulations are “in effect” or are “not in effect.” The same notice will be posted on the borough’s Facebook page.

For those that may not have access to the Internet, a call to the borough office at 472-8780 is all that will be necessary to verify whether vehicles parked on the street need to be moved. During business hours, staff will be able to answer the question. After hours, the recording will inform the caller if the regulations are in effect or not.

Winter parking restrictions will be placed in effect with every forecasted snowfall, and should be considered in effect with every unexpected snowfall. Depending on conditions, the restrictions will often remain in effect for several days following a snowfall. Crews often work for several days to push snow back from the curbs, to clear intersections, and to clear slush from the streets. Residents will be required to move vehicles until such time that the announcement on the website and Facebook is again changed. It will be everyone’s responsibility to verify the current enforcement status of the winter parking regulations. Remember…because it snowed two days ago and hasn’t snowed since; the winter parking regulations may still be in effect. Check the website!

The relaxed winter parking regulations will require the full cooperation of everyone. It is important that the public works crews are able to maintain clear streets during winter conditions. If the relaxation of enforcement causes problems in that regard, it will be necessary to return to daily enforcement. Please work with us so that we can maintain our streets in a safe manner, while minimizing the inconvenience to you and your neighbors of moving your vehicle twice each day.
