STATE OF EMERGENCY

Message from Mayor Joel Long:  Today I signed a Declaration of a State of Emergency for the City of Lock Haven. The Declaration pertains to City operations and not to private business. The City will continue to provide essential services but restrict access to City facilities. Council is taking this situation very seriously and doing everything possible to protect not only our employees but the citizens of Lock Haven. I urge you to follow the recommendations of the CDC to slow the progress of this virus and give the experts time to find the best solution to the threat facing us. Thank you to the dedicated first responders and health care professionals who are working hard to minimize the impact to our community.

As part of their efforts to make accommodations to those economically effected by the COVID-19 emergency, City Council has voted to waive all late fees for the City’s Commercial Loans and Sidewalk Improvement Loans.  Also, Council has adopted Ordinance No. 2020-05 providing for installment payments for 2020 Real Estate Taxes which will provide relief from penalty for those who keep the installment plan as outlined in the Ordinance.  Review Ordinance 2020-05 here.

In an effort to minimize exposure to curbside collection workers, Wayne Township Landfill will be suspending residential curbside collection for the next two weeks.  Customers are asked to take materials to the drop-off location located at the Myrtle Street Drop Off Center. Please visit our recycling page for more information on what can and cannot be recycled.  We thank you for your continued cooperation at this time.
