Fall Leaf Collection 2020

Fall leaf collection started this past Tuesday, October 13, 2020 and will run on a bi-weekly basis until December 8, 2020, which will be the last scheduled leaf pick up for the 2020 collection season.

Please note: All leaves must be placed into brown, biodegradable paper leaf bags to be collected.

HALLOWEEN 2020

It is the position of the Churchill Borough Council that door to door Trick or Treating is not a municipally-sponsored event. While this is not officially sponsored by the Borough, we have established times during which friends and neighbors have an idea of when to expect extra visitors at their door and our public safety officials will be patrolling the community to help keep those participating safe. These times are 2-4PM on Saturday, October 31st.

For those who choose to allow their children to participate in an outdoor neighborhood Halloween activity, we encourage you do so with virus spread-reducing masks and following recommended physical distancing guidelines per the CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/holidays.html#halloween). We also ask that you ONLY visit homes of those residents who you know are welcoming door-to-door trick-or-treaters. If you are passing out candy or treats, you may want to consider placing them in a container at the end of your driveway or porch. If you will be passing out treats from your door, you are encouraged to wear a mask and wash and sanitize your hands frequently.

Please be respectful of those residents who have chosen to be vigilant with regards to self-isolation and physical distancing due to legitimate concerns about the potential serious health consequences of COVID-19. It should not be the responsibility of those residents who may not have access to the internet to proclaim their lack of participation in what the CDC considers high risk door-to-door trick-or-treating.

We thank you for your consideration and, as always, if you are not feeling well, stay home.

Churchill Borough is seeking local volunteers to serve on the Borough’s Human Relations Commission

Churchill Borough is seeking local volunteers to serve on the Borough’s Human Relations Commission. The Churchill Human Rights Commission serves as an advisory body to the Churchill Borough Council on matters pertaining to the Borough’s Human Relations Ordinance.

The Commission will have three to five members, who will serve terms of three years each. Members of the Commission are appointed by the Borough Council and members shall be residents of the Borough or individuals who work full-time within Churchill Borough.

Among other tasks to promote diversity the Human Relations Commission will be tasked with handling complaints through a fact-finding conference with the parties of the dispute in order to resolve the dispute without the need to hire lawyers or go to court.

Those interested in volunteering on the commission should email a letter and resume to Alex Graziani, Borough Manager alex@churchillborough.com . Questions are welcomed. Simply email Alex or call 412-758-8818.

Green Space:  The Ever-Important Role

In urban and suburban areas, the importance of green space to health and the quality of life may or may not be obvious. The communities that the CAEC serves are generally considered suburban areas with public green space available to residents in varying degrees. This advisory has been prepared to describe the overall importance of green space throughout our communities including both public lands preserved as green space, e.g. parks and greenways, and private green spaces including what an individual can do to enhance green space at a residence through natural and “green” methods.

For more information download Green Space:  The Ever-Important Role.
