Municipalities say Pennsylvania court ruling on stormwater fees could drain them financially

"John Brenner, the executive director of the Pennsylvania Municipal League, said the case represents an additional threat to the financial stability of the state’s many municipalities.

'Many of our communities are already struggling to meet today’s costs, especially with inflation, and under a taxing system that is, well, outdated,' he said. 'You throw this on top of that for many of the communities, and it could certainly be a significant burden for them.'"

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Millions of dollars that help local governments manage stormwater runoff are at stake as the Pennsylvania Supreme Court considers a lower court’s decision that a state-owned …

Kids' input is vital when designing playspaces. It gives children a sense of belonging and ownership in these spaces created just for them. Thank you to everyone that joined us at the West Penn Park Project Design Day and to the City of Pittsburgh and the Pennsylvania Municipal League for hosting the event.

Does your municipality value economic development & revitalization? How about health & public safety – or even parks & land conservation? As a resident, you can play a part in helping your community become more sustainable. Sustainable Pittsburgh and the Pennsylvania Municipal League encourages you to reach out to your local municipal officials to see what they are already doing and share how adopting a sustainability strategy will benefit government operations, foster community economic opportunity, and lead to a resilient, attractive community for all.
I joined a few of my mayoral colleagues at the Pennsylvania Municipal League Capitol Conference to receive legislative updates and to advocate for issues impacting our communities.
We are pleased to announce that Carlisle Borough has become certified through the Sustainable Pennsylvania Community Certification Program! We are recognized at the Platinum level for meeting the program's rigorous performance criteria, which track 131 policies and practices that define a sustainable community.

This certification acknowledges our progress in areas such as community design and land use, energy efficiency, health and wellness, intergovernmental cooperation, recycling and waste reduction, fiscal controls, and internal management and operations.

“Receiving this prestigious designation was truly a community effort,” Mayor Sean Shultz said. “We thank our many community and partner stakeholders for their efforts in embracing sustainability and helping improve the environment and the lives of our residents. This certification is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of all of those in our organization who make Carlisle a great place to live, work, learn, and play.”

The Sustainable Pennsylvania Community Certification is managed by the Pennsylvania Municipal League in partnership with Sustainable Pittsburgh.
