DUBLIN BOROUGH WINTER STORM CLEAN UP RESIDENT LETTER
Dublin Borough Residents:
We understand and recognize the inconvenience the recent winter storms have created for all of us. Due to the nature and timing of these storms occurring very close to one another, snow plowing operations have been very difficult.
Please remember that the Borough’s primary responsibility is to make the streets clear and passable for the community’s overall public safety and welfare. It is not the Borough’s responsibility to clear driveway aprons, sidewalks, and mailboxes. We do recognize that the snow plowing of Borough streets impacts property owners when it comes to your driveway aprons, sidewalks and mailboxes. This is, unfortunately, an unavoidable consequence of snow plowing operations that everyone needs to understand and accept as part of overall public safety.
Due to the extraordinary amount of snow and ice received during this record breaking winter, crews have been working around the clock and doing their best to move the snow off of Borough streets. Crews have been instructed to clear piles of snow away from intersections to provide safe site distances for vehicle entering adjacent roadways. They will also be attempting to clear storm water inlets and fire hydrants. This unfortunately may result in snow being pushed, in many cases, onto properties beyond the curb line in order to make the roads safe and passable.
In order to best serve the community and keep streets clear, we ask resident to not park vehicles on Borough streets until snow plow operations have been completed. In addition, please do not place snow from your driveways and sidewalks in Borough streets as this can create hazardous conditions and result in increased snow removal costs for the Borough.
We thank you for your continued patience and understanding during this difficult winter as Borough crews continue to clean up after these storms.

Dublin Borough wants you to be informed before, during, and after an emergency. That's why the Borough uses the Ready Notify system to provide a broad range of emergency notification to those who live and work in Dublin. And that is why the Borough strongly recommends that its residents sign up for this emergency notification program. ReadyNotifyPA is a 5-County regional notification system intended to provide emergency notifications that are relevant to our area.
This alerting system is another powerful tool being utilized by Dublin Borough to communicate with our residents. When situations arise in Southeastern Pennsylvania that may affect you and your family, ReadyNotifyPA lets the Emergency Management officials quickly and directly notify you.
ReadyNotifyPA can send an e-mail or a text message to your mobile phone or other e-mail enabled device. You let ReadyNotifyPA know how you’d like to be notified. The alerts are free; however, your cellular provider may charge for text messaging.
What’s unique about the system is the degree to which subscribers can customize the kinds of messages they receive as well as how they receive them.

At their December 16, 2013 meeting, Dublin Borough Council adopted the 2014 Annual Operating and Capital Budget.The proposed 2014 Budget incorporates a 3-Mil property tax increase for the General Fund. The increased property tax millage goes from 10.000 mills to 13.000 mills. Of the total 13.000 mills, 11.5 are earmarked for General Fund purposes and equals approximately $215,000.00 or 21.9% of total General Fund Revenue. The remaining 1.5 mills are allocated to the Street Improvement Fund and generate approximately $28,000 in revenue annually.
A home owner assessed at the average assessment value of $26,304 will pay $342.00 per year in real estate property taxes or $28.50 per month for Borough services.
The increase in real estate property tax is necessary to maintain services at current levels, cover the anticipated deficit at year end 2014, maintain the General Fund Balance and provide on-going funding to the General Capital Fund for Phase 2 of Supplee Park. It also establishes seed money for the Revitalization & Visioning Plan pending successful grant awards. For the full narrative and budget CLICK HERE
