The Mechanicsburg Ordinance and Resolution Committee will hold a meeting on Thursday, June 18, 2020 at 6pm at the Municipal Building.
The Village of Mechanicsburg will be conducting regular preventative maintenance on our water tower beginning June 1, 2020. This maintenance is to preserve the exterior coating of the tower and cleaning and coating the inside of the tank. It will require the Village to drain the tower while the maintenance is being done. This is to prevent condensation on the exterior, cleaning and painting the interior, and will be dependent on weather and temperature variances. The actual work under ideal conditions would require about 5-7 days to complete for both the inside and outside. However we are scheduling up to 4-5 weeks to complete the work. We will bring in a temporary tank for water storage.
Due to the size of the temporary tank we are requiring Mandatory Water Conservation while the main storage tank is offline.
The following water uses are considered nonessential and are prohibited during this emergency.

After April 25th, delinquent utility accounts will be reviewed and the need for service disconnections will be determined by the office on a case by case basis to ensure that delinquent balances do not become so excessive that they cannot be brought current within a reasonable time.
