Trash Collection in Chalfont Borough will be Saturday due to the snow pushing the schedule back a day.
Hey All with the storm approaching tomorrow here are some reminders:
*Residents, even those with permits must move their cars off the streets as soon as the first snow falls. All Borough streets are snow emergency routes. Please take some time today to plan for your vehicles, especially if you live on Elm Circle or Oxford Lane. The fine for leaving your car on the street is $200.
*Do not shovel or snow blow your snow back into the street. This causes hours of added time to our plows and can cause delays on when all roads will be safely opened for travel.
* We know that residents hate the “windrows” (those long piles of snow on each side of the road) that plows leave behind, and that often bury freshly shoveled sidewalks and driveway aprons. Every year we receive calls from angry folks that the plow has “pushed the snow back in their driveway”. Unfortunately, the reality is that these “windrows” are an unavoidable part of plowing. You can reduce the amount of snow that ends up in a windrow in front of your drive or on your sidewalk by clearing snow as shown in the attached diagram.
*Property owners are required to clear their sidewalks within 12 hours of an ice or snow event. Excessive ice must be treated with sand or an abrasive material substance for safe pedestrian travel.
*Keep all portable basketball hoops and trash cans out of the street so that they do not interfere with snow plowing

FILE YOUR LOCAL TAX RETURN ONLINE
Tax Day, April 17, is fast approaching. Our local tax administrator, Keystone Collections Group, just made e-file easier and faster. With clear graphics, an interactive format and a streamlined process, you can file your local return online, in minutes, using any mobile device.
With e-file, you enter only the most basic information necessary to file your local return. You can easily transfer overpayments to your spouse’s balance due using the “Married Filing Jointly” option. You can file multiple returns from one e-file account, and you can view the status of your return(s) on the Home Page.
Even if you work outside of Pennsylvania, you can now file online. If you moved during the year, e-file makes it easy to file your part-year returns for each of your home locations if Keystone is the tax administrator.
Best of all – you can file your return today and schedule your payment for April 17 or before. You will get an online receipt for the payment.
If you are due a refund, you’ll receive an online confirmation that your refund was deposited into your bank account.
State law requires Pennsylvania residents with earned income to file a local tax return even if your employer withholds the tax from payroll or even if you are not due a refund. If you don’t have payroll withholding, work in Philadelphia and/or have net profits, you are required to file a local earned income tax return.
Why wait? File online today with e-file.
