The May 2019 code enforcement report has been released. Marvin Frazell, the borough code enforcement officer, reminds residents that the summer months bring yard sales, but telephone poles are not the appropriate place to advertise. Residents are encouraged to keep their advertisements off of telephone poles as nails and staples are a potential risk to electrical line workers.
