We have noted that there has been discussion on Facebook in regard to the cleanliness of Main Street and the adjoining sidewalks.
Please note that Chapter 21-261 states that, “All property owners, their tenants and lessees in the Borough of Stroudsburg shall have the duty to keep the sidewalks adjoining their properties free and clear of dirt, litter and debris.” Chapter 21-262 further states that this must be done, “…on or before 10:00 am each day of the week, excluding Sundays.”
Finally, 21-263 states that, “Such dirt, litter and debris shall not be placed on the cartway of any street in the Borough of Stroudsburg but instead shall be placed in a container… and disposed of in the same manner as he/she disposes of other waste materials, at the sole cost and expense of said property owner, his tenants, or lessees.”
On most day when the temperature is above 32 degrees Fahrenheit, the Borough is continuing to run our street sweeper throughout the winter months to keep the streets as clean as possible for residents and visitors.
We appreciate your help in keeping our streets, and sidewalks, clean.
