Rental Property Information
In 2001, Borough Council passed Ordinance No. 934 which allows for occupants of rental property within the Borough.
Owners of rental properties are required to submit a Tenant Notification Form [Link to form PDF] for every unit or property by the last day of January each year, and/or whenever there is a change in tenant occupancy. You must submit a form every year even if there is no change from last year, the tenants are family members of the owners that do not pay rent, or the unit is unoccupied.
The Ordinance provides for enforcement as a summary offense for failure to comply with the stated provisions.
The GIS map is a Borough-wide tool that home and business owners, realtors, and other interested parties can use to determine the zoning designation of a particular property.
