Borough Park Closure
On March 25, 2020, following our daily briefing on COVID-19, the Borough of Steelton in conjunction with the Steelton Police Department made the decision that ALL Borough parks and playgrounds, including equipment, play areas, basketball courts, picnic areas, and the skate park are CLOSED until further notice. In regards to the boat launch, the pavilion is closed, however the boat launch remains open for boaters.
Signs will be posted on each of the parks with this notification. This decision was made to protect residents, specifically children in the borough, from exposure to COVID-19. We are doing our best to ensure the safety and health of all borough residents.
Due to COVID-19 health concerns, street sweeping in the Borough of Steelton will NOT be enforced beginning April 1st. The warnings issued today were in error and the Steelton Borough Police Department WILL NOT be enforcing street sweeping violations until further notice.
We apologize for any confusion this may cause. Please disregard any warning you may have received and remember that all other parking/safety violations will be enforced.
Utility Billing Information
Steelton Sewer Service
Steelton Borough Council has directed that all delinquent collections of sewer services and accrual of penalties be halted through the duration of this disaster emergency.
Harrisburg Trash Service
Mayor Papenfuse has suspended the application of penalties, interest, and fees on municipal waste accounts for City residential and commercial accounts, and Steelton residential accounts, through the duration of this disaster emergency.
“The City of Harrisburg understands that individuals may have trouble paying their bills promptly during these unprecedented times. We will not make matters worse by applying interest, penalties, or fees on late payments of trash bills in Harrisburg and Steelton during this disaster emergency,” said Mayor Papenfuse.
American Water Service
Given the importance of personal hygiene in preventing the spread of the coronavirus, we have suspended billing-related service shutoffs. We will continue to evaluate this suspension period as more information becomes available. Please note that your water service may be temporarily interrupted for emergency work; however, we will strive to keep interruptions to a minimum.
We have turned water service back on for customers who were previously shutoff for non-payment. This includes customers whose water service was turned off for non-payment of sewer service, even if Pennsylvania American Water is not the sewer service provider. If your service has not yet been restored, contact us immediately at 800-565-7292.
