Keys to Homeownership Workshop
President Sharon Council-Harris and Vice-President Nelva Wright attended the October 17, 2015 Keys to Homeownership Workshop that was presented in partnership with Republic Bank and Clarifi, a non-profit agency that provides education on consumer financing and mortgages. Twenty-five residents attended and received valuable information pertaining to building credit, fixing poor credit, and how to prevent mortgage foreclosure. See photos here.
Residents should not mix regular trash with recycling materials. Only glass, plastic, and paper and cardboard products can be put out for recycling collection. If those materials are put out for collection in dark plastic bags they will not be picked up. Recycle stickers are available at Borough Hall if using cans not marked recyclable. If trash is mixed in it can lead to the load being rejected at the recycling center. Thank you for your cooperation and help in making the recycling program a success.
