TRAPPE ROAD PROGRAM
The Borough of Trappe has instituted a Road Program whereby all Borough owned roads in Trappe were put on a maintenance schedule for road repairs. The Borough's 2012 road project included E. College Avenue, W. College Avenue and E. First Ave.
As the road maintenance work gets underway, property owners should know that if you have damaged curbs you will be required to make the curb repairs. Curb repair and maintenance is the responsibility of the property owner. (See, TBC 286). As such, you may opt to have the repair work done yourself or, in the alternative, the Borough's contractor will make the necessary repairs and the property owner will be billed for the repair work.
The Road Program Schedule is subject to change depending on current circumstances. The Borough will advise residents of any changes. Resident should plan ahead to be prepared to make the necessary curbs repairs in a timely manner. Click here for a complete Road Program Schedule.
