Beautify our Borough! 
Many of our residents have been concerned about the state of litter and trash in our borough.  We’d like to make Fountain Hill lovely again!  Will you help?  We have formed a small committee to start the ball rolling.  Come join us as we begin our cleanup at 9 am, May 6, Borough Hall.  All residents welcome, young and old.  Students – need community service hours?  -- help your borough and get those credits!  We will have gloves, trash bags and donuts! 

Plans are being developed to address all parts of the borough.  In the meantime, please do what you can in your own neighborhood!
