It has been brought to our attention that there was an error in the Borough of Newburg’s Spring Newsletter. The newsletter stated that you would receive 10% off if you paid your sewer bill for the entire year and that is not correct. I regret to inform everyone that you would save 5% off your sewer bill for the full year. We regret any inconvenience that this may have caused someone. If you have any questions about your sewer bill please contact Newburg-Hopewell Joint Authority at 717-423-6180 or P.O. Box 128, Newburg Pa, 17240. For any other questions please contact the Borough Office at 717-423-0050.


Street Sweeping will be completed on May 25th, 2017 at 7am. If the weather does no cooperate, it will rescheduled for Friday May 26th. Please make sure that your vehicles are removed from the streets at this time. Please call the Borough office with any questions.
