Hurricane Irene

Hello Lansdownians,


Everyone is talking about Irene, so I thought I’d pass along some info I’ve received.


I just got an email from Delaware County (see below) – please read it over. I also understand from Mayor Young that Lansdowne’s Police and Fire Departments are taking a look around the borough and trying to be proactive about potential problems. All is being considered in the borough.


The next Yard Waste Wednesday isn’t until September 14th, so please gather and hold onto any fallen limbs and branches that may get blown around until then.


Take care, and enjoy the sun while we have it.



Barbara Silzle

Lansdowne Borough Council

Chair, Environment Committee
