A reminder to all residents and businesses in the Borough

It's snow season! Please review the Shillington Borough Ordinance for sidewalk snow removal. Shillington's Ordinance requires that property owners clear adjacent sidewalks within 24 hours of the first accumulation.
REMEMBER:
- You are just as responsible for clearing ice on your sidewalk as you are for clearing snow. The sooner and more completely you shovel, the less likely that ice will form.
- If you're going on vacation, make arrangements for someone to take over while you are away.

The Berks County Conservation District will be offering a Spotted Lanternfly Control Program to interested private property owners throughout the county. The overall objective is to reduce the number of Spotted Lanternfly (Lycorma delicatula) by treating and eliminating one of the invasive insects’ preferred host trees, the Tree of Heaven (Ailanthus altissima). Several Tree of Heaven trees will be left and treated with systemic insecticides to provide control of Spotted Lanternfly. Our program will concentrate on privately owned property in areas of Berks County with higher concentrations of Spotted Lanternfly and Tree of Heaven.

*Not every property will be approved for financial assistance in treating for SLF. There will be a ranking system to prioritize projects. BCCD will rank requests to determine which properties serve as a greater risk and therefore are given priority.
*Larger properties or a contiguous group of properties will be ranked higher, but neighboring properties can benefit by being joined together with a single liaison for the project.

The Assistance Request form for anyone who qualifies and is interested in applying for assistance will be listed on the Berks County Conservation District website.

Please direct any questions on the program to the Berks County Conservation District.
