The Borough Office has received numerous complaints
recently regarding residents walking their dogs and not
cleaning up after them. The Code of Ordinances of the
Borough of Spring Grove defines this
violation as a pet owner allowing their
pet to defecate upon any street,
sidewalk, passageway, park or any
other public place where people
congregate or walk; or upon any
private property of another person without the permission of
the owner of said property, unless such pet owner
immediately removes and disposes of the feces in a sanitary
manner. Clean up after your pet or you will be fined!
Treatment Plant Upgrade Process
The Borough has received a permit allowing the treatment
and discharge of wastewater to Codorus Creek, once the
upgrade project is complete. A pre-bid meeting was held on
