Delco Alert - December 23, 2020

Good Afternoon. This is Mayor Barbarann Keffer with some updates for Upper Darby Township residents.

Our home rule charter states that we must pass a millage rate before the end of the year. The court-mandated County reassessment delayed key information that we needed in order to calculate the millage rate. Based on new information from the County, we are adjusting the millage rate to ensure that we remain revenue-neutral for 2021. Therefore, I have called for special meetings of Upper Darby Township Council for Thursday, December 24th at 8am to introduce the adjusted millage rate ordinance and on Thursday, December 31st at 8am for a public hearing on the ordinance.

As with all public meetings until COVID-19 is contained, these meetings will be virtual and available to the public on the township YouTube channel. Residents can call in to 484-393-5861 OR email their comments to until 8am on Thursday, December 24th. For the December 31st meeting, comments will be accepted from noon on December 30th until the close of the public hearing.

As a reminder, the Township is closed this Friday, December 25th and next Friday, January 1st. No trash or recycling will be collected on those dates. Please check your calendar, which runs through the end of January, for full details. There is also one on the township website. Please help us reduce recycling costs: take the caps off bottles and do not put your recycling in plastic bags. Contaminated recycling is costly. When in doubt, throw it out.

Curbside Christmas Tree collection run January 4th through January 15th on your regular recycling day. You can also drop your tree off at Naylorís Run Park at any time to be mulched. We appreciate your efforts to keep these items out of landfills.

This is Mayor Barbarann Keffer wishing you a safe and healthy Holiday Season and a very Happy New Year.
