Independence Day Closure

Borough Hall and Public Works will be closed on Monday, July 4, 2022 in observance of Independence Day.

As a reminder, there will not be trash or recycling collection taking place on this day. Residents should not put any trash out for collection on this day.

Our offices will reopen on Tuesday, July 5, 2022 at 7 AM.

The Hatboro Police Department would also like to remind residents of the following Fireworks Safety Measures: With the Forth of July coming the use of consumer grade fireworks increases. While the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania amended the state’s fireworks law in 2017, their sale and use in Pennsylvania remains highly regulated. In general, the use of consumer grade fireworks are restricted as follows:

– They cannot be ignited or discharged on a public or private property without express permission of the property owner.

– They cannot be discharged from or within a motor vehicle or building.

– They cannot be discharged toward a motor vehicle or building.

– They cannot be discharged within 150 feet of an occupied structure, whether or not a person is actually present.

– They cannot be discharged while the person is under the influence of alcohol, a controlled substance, or another drug.

Consumer fireworks are prohibited in Borough parks and properties and on school district properties. If you wish to see fireworks this holiday weekend consider attending one of the professional fireworks displays our region offers.

On behalf of Borough Council, Mayor Schultz, and Borough Staff, have a safe and happy holiday!
