Please read below inforamtion regarding "Burn Bans". Thank you!

IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING OPEN BURNING IN THE TOWNSHIP
Spring is brush fire season in our region. Area fields are full of dry crop residue, wooded areas are covered in dry leaves and yards haven’t turned green yet. The mixture of low humidity, high winds and plenty of available items on the ground to burn can make for a very dangerous situation. The Township monitors weather conditions daily and may place a temporary restriction on burning until conditions improve. Please be aware that while Spring is historically the most common time of year for burn bans, they can be enacted at any time as a result of drought or other weather related events.

Burn bans are enacted every time a Fire Danger Weather Related Warning is issued for our area by the National Weather Service. These notices include the following:

-Fire Weather Watch
-Enhanced Threats for Fire Spread
-Red Flag Warnings
Burn bans apply to all open fires! For more information regarding regulations for burning including acceptable items to burn, hours of burning, setbacks, etc. please review the Township’s Burn Ordinance.
Ways that you can find out if a burn ban is in effect:

-Contact the Lehigh County 911 Center, Non-emergency # 610-437-5252
(Note: Per Twp. Ord. All open burns must be reported to the County 911 Center via this #)
-Contact the Township office at 610-285-6660 during normal business hours

-Sign-up for weather alerts from the National Weather Service. If an alert is issued related to fire weather in our Township then open burning is prohibited during the times specified in the alert.

As many of you know, the Township has a file for every property in the Township. These files include things such as permits, septic testing & various other documents which are very useful when planning a new project or for new buyers of a property. As years go on and the Township continues to grow we have found ourselves running out of room to physically store these files at our office. As a result the Township is in the process of having these files scanned and entered into an online, cloud based program which will free up storage space in our building and make it easier and quicker to search and share documents. Once all of the documents have been scanned and the new program is up and running, the physical files will be destroyed. If you would like to receive the original file for your property, please contact Janet at Weisenberg Township by calling 610-285-6660 by May 31th, 2022. All files will be scanned and stored on the cloud so no information will be lost.

If you do not receive your property file, don’t worry, in the near future we will have the ability to share property files very easily electronically at no cost to the property owner.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE


No one likes to see trash along the road or in their yards. Additionally debris falling or tossed from vehicles create traffic hazards and are dangerous.

Please help prevent this by taking a couple of extra minutes to secure your loads. Whether you’re hauling trash, yard waste or just forgot that you have something loose in your pickup truck bed or trailer these items routinely end up along our roads. Please chip in and help keep our community clean & safe.

THANK YOU


We are pleased to announce that Weisenberg Township has received a Multimodal Transportation Grant for the construction of phase 2 of our multi-purpose trail project. Special thank you to Senator Pat Browne & Representative Gary Day for their assistance with securing this grant.

Construction on phase 1 of the trail is expected to start later this year. Phase 1 work includes upgrading the existing gavel trail along Golden Key Rd. from Waste Management to the Weisenberg Fire Station to asphalt & construction of a new asphalt trail around the Weisenberg Athletic Fields.

Phase 2 will connect the athletic field trails to the existing sidewalk of Weisenberg Elementary school via a crosswalk.

Read on for information regarding winter inspections.

Are inspections required in winter?

Many areas with SLF have had recent freezing temperatures. With the rare exception that a few adults might survive in sheltered areas, the first freeze of the winter should kill the remaining adults.
Once overnight freezing temperatures occur in your area, complete and document a final inspection for the season:
• Inspect vehicles, equipment and materials stored outside or unprotected.
• Check wheel wells, under sides of bumpers, truck beds, ...
• Check pallets, trailers, stone products, …
• Remove and destroy any egg masses and adults.
After completing this step, SLF inspections may be suspended December 1 through March 31.

NOTE: You will need to check vehicles, equipment, materials, etc. that were outside during the egg deposition period and did not undergo a final inspection as detailed above before transporting them within or from the quarantine zone. If any egg masses are found, remove and destroy them before moving the item.

Identify & Remove Egg Masses

• Identify egg masses and the other life stages with “What to look for”.
