Cemetery Fence

Borough Council plans to make a decision regarding the fence at the Watsontown Cemetery at their March 12th meeting. Due to its age, the fencing has fallen into disrepair over the years and the cost to professionally restore it is $60,000. Because of the cost, serious consideration will be given to removing the fence instead of restoring it. But before a final decision is made Council would like to hear from our residents. Please stop in or call the Borough Office to ask any questions or share your opinion before March 9th.
