Mayor Busch will be hosting open office hours this week at his Borough Hall office on Thursday, March 22, 2018 from 10am to noon.  No appointment is necessary.


Following a Borough engineer’s inspection on 1/30/18, safety deficiencies were discovered at the Graham Avenue “Kahn’s Crossing” pedestrian bridge over the Greenway.  As a result, the bridge is closed. 

Once all safety concerns are addressed, the Borough will reopen the bridge. Updates will be posted once more information becomes available. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
