Recently, the Township has received numerous complaints from residents about overgrown vegetation blocking road signs, low hanging branches and vines, and missing road signs on these PennDOT-owned roadways. The Township has encouraged PennDOT to remedy these issues. We are asking you to help PennDOT by calling them at (484) 340-3201 and reporting any road issues you may see on their roads. Roger Palmer is the Township PennDOT Representative. 
These are the roads in our Township that PennDOT owns and maintains:
Appleton Road, Chesterville Road, Good Hope Road, North Bank Road, North Clay Creek Road, North Creek Road, Pennock Bridge Road, Route 896 (New London Road), Strickersville Road, and Wickerton Road (Route 841).

The Emerald Ash Borer and the Spotted Lanternfly are damaging to area hardwoods.  Click Here to learn more about how this can affect the trees on your property.

CHURCH HILL ROAD CLOSURE BETWEEN EMERSON AND HILLTOP
Monday, October 21    8:00 AM – 3:00 PM     Weather Permitting

FIVE NEW GRILLS JUST INSTALLED IN CROSSAN PARK!
The Franklin Sportsmen's Association has been hard at work in Crossan Park.  Remember how hard the ground was since we haven’t had rain in months?  Well, the FSA can tell you how hard it was!  Check out the five new grills they installed over the course of several long days!  They installed them in concrete and surrounded them with pavers.  Bring your own charcoal and try them out!  The members of the FSA have also been busy painting the tables in the pavilions.  Great job and THANK YOU to the Franklin Sportsmans Association!

NEWLY RENOVATED LADIES 
AND MENS BATHROOMS

While you are at the park, go into the newly redone Ladies and Mens Bathrooms.  They are beautiful!  Each bathroom has a changing table, soap and a hand dryer.  They are a much needed improvement to the park.
