Jeter Ave. Project
The Borough will be using grant monies from the County of Lehigh to reconstruct Jeter Ave. beginning Summer 2017. 

Recent Grants
  • The Borough was awarded $5,311.00 by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection through their ACT 101 Recycling Program. This grant reflects the 731.6 tons of residential and commercial materials recycled by our residents in 2014. 
  • The Borough was awarded $201,231.00 through the County of Lehigh's Community Development Block Grant funding. These funds will be used for the reconstruction of Jeter Ave.

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!

Questions?  Call Carolee Gifford, (484) 554-1412.
