Sidewalks are an integral part of the fabric of our community.  Please be sure to keep sidewalks clear of ice, snow, shrubbery, grass and any other landscaping that would interfere with the safe passage of pedestrians and children on bicycles.  Snow and ice should be removed within 12 hours of daylight after a storm ends.  Sidewalks should be completely clear from overgrowth and trees should be trimmed to allow clearance up to seven (7) feet.  If your sidewalk needs repair, a permit is required and can be obtained in the Borough Hall or online (under Forms & Permits).

Please be reminded that Pennington Borough does have a leash law. Dogs must be "controlled by an adequate leash not more than six feet long." Additionally, Borough Code requires that "the person in control of said dog or dogs shall immediately remove all feces deposited by said dog or dogs in a sanitary manner and shall dispose of all such feces in a sanitary manner and in a way so as not to interfere with the rights of others." For the safety of your neighbors and your pet we ask for your compliance.
