Fall Brush Chipping - Fall Collection begins Monday, November 3, 2014. All brush must be placed at the curb by 7:00am. All brush 1/2" to 4" in diameter only! It is imperative that all residents have your brush at the curb on the first Monday of the chipping season. The chipping service may take one or two weeks to get to all areas of the Borough depending on the amount of brush placed at the curb. Please cut and place your brush perpendicular to the curb with the butt end out. This service is provided for brush and tree trimmings only. No thorn bushes will be accepted. If you have a tree or trees to dispose of, you must contact a private contractor. Borough crews will not spend more than 15 minutes or chipping brush at your home.

Fall Leaf Bag Collection - Fall Dates: Mondays Only - November 3,10,17 and 24th. All bags must be placed at the curb. Pick-up begins at 6:00am. Waste Management will only collect leaves in biodegradable paper bags. Please refrain from putting rocks, sticks, plastic bottles, etc. in the bags. These items will contaminate the mulch. The bags should contain leaves only. Please leave enough room at the top of the bag so you can either fold or roll it closed. Do not close with duct tape! Biodegradable bags are available at the municipal building at a cost $.40/each, or you may purchase them at retail stores. The leaf mulch will be available at Blueberry Park again in the spring.

Election Day is November 4, 2014. Exercise your right to vote! Polls are open from 7am-8pm.

Budget Hearings FY 2015 - The Franklin Park Borough Council Finance Committee will hold Budget Hearings for the FY 2015 Budget on Saturday, November 8, 2014 beginning at 8:30 a.m. in Council Chambers at the Municipal Building, 2344 W. Ingomar Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15237. The hearings afford department directors the opportunity to present and justify their 2015 budget requests, and Council will also discuss and consider those requests. All persons interested in said hearings are invited to attend.

Veterans Day is a holiday for municipal employees. The borough offices will be closed. However, it is not a holiday for Waste Management and service will remain normal.

Parks and Recreation Open Space Plan Committee Meeting - The Franklin Park Borough Parks and Recreation Open Space Plan Committee will hold regular monthly meetings on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00pm from August 2014 through March 2015, in the Municipal Building conference room, 2344 W.
