Snow Removal Policy
Every person in charge or control of any building or lot of land fronting or abutting on a paved sidewalk, whether as owner, tenant, occupant, lessee, or otherwise, shall remove and clear away or cause to be removed or cleared away, snow and/or ice from a path of at least 30 inches in width from so much of said sidewalk as is in front of or abuts on said building or lot of land.
 
A. Except as provided in Subsection B hereof, snow and ice shall be removed from sidewalks within 12 hours after the cessation of any fall of snow, sleet or freezing rain.
 
B. In the event snow and/or ice on a sidewalk has become so hard that it cannot be removed without likelihood of damage to the sidewalk, the person charged with its removal shall, within the time mentioned in Subsection A hereof, cause enough sand or other abrasive to be put on the sidewalk to make travel reasonably safe; and shall, as soon thereafter as weather permits, cause to be cleared a path in said sidewalk of at least 30 inches in width.

Welcome to the Borough of Greencastle and the Borough Web Site. Founded on March 25, 1805, Greencastle Borough is one of Pennsylvania’s most historic communities.  Located in picturesque south-central Pennsylvania, Greencastle’s history is rich in tradition, the community beautiful and the people friendly and welcoming.  Close proximity to a number of large cities - 84 miles to Washington, 70 miles to Baltimore, D.C., 63 miles to Harrisburg, 158 miles to Pittsburgh and 152 miles to Philadelphia- makes Greencastle an ideal location for easy access to regional historic sites, multi-cultural events, and abundant shopping and dining.

Civic pride appears throughout our community.  Community First Fridays from May to October, the Triennial Greencastle-Antrim Old Home Week, next scheduled for August 2016, and a significant number of other community events make Greencastle a wonderful place to live and visit.

I hope you find this web site useful and I encourage you to contact us if you have questions or suggestions for improvement.

If you are here for a visit we thank you for coming and hope you will visit often. If you  are a resident who has "put down roots", we thank you for making Greencastle the beautiful town that we call home.  

 

Robert E. Eberly
Mayor
