There will be a Street and Utility Committee meeting Thursday, October 7 at the Municipal Building meeting room to discuss projects.
The village of Mechanicsburg will have several streets resurfaced this week. Due to weather and Covid both projects, after cancellations, have converged and will begin Wednesday, September 29th early in the morning.
First project is Lynn, School and East Race St. This Micro surfacing will cause all three streets to be completely shut down. Process will require a curing time of 4-6 hours after application. While we realize that this will be an inconvenience for some we ask for your patience. Use the alleys to get as close to your residence as possible. Our Street Department has distributed flyers and posted no parking signs in the area.
Second project is on the west side of town. This is a chip/tar resurfacing project. There is no street parking in that area and will not cause as much disruption as the east side project. Once the tar is laid and the stone is down it can be immediately used. We ask that you use caution around the workers and equipment for your safety and theirs. There will be flaggers in that area.
Please be kind to all the workers and use caution in the work areas. We are short staffed due to illness and will do our very best to make sure this all goes smoothly.
There will be a Street and Utility meeting at the Municipal Building on Monday, May 24, 2021 at 5pm.
Brush pick up is provided as a free service to our residents who are cleaning up the yard around their homes. Brush is picked up on the first Monday of the month.
Please follow these rules:
The Mechanicsburg Street/Utility Committee will hold a meeting at 4pm on Tuesday, March 9th at the Municipal Building to discuss emergency street repairs.
The Mechanicsburg Street and Utility Committee will meet at the Municipal Building on Thursday, January 7th at 4pm to discuss projects for 2021.
Leaf pick-up will end Friday, November 27, 2020. Please do not put leaves out for pickup after this date unless they are bagged.
The Village of Mechanicsburg has begun leaf pick up. We have resurrected the leaf vacuum for now. They are using it to get the leaves out of the gutters and catch basins. Please still bag or mulch your leaves as much as possible. If not possible they will get what is in the gutter and streets with the machine. Thanks for your cooperation. There will be no brush pick up until after leaf season at the end of the month.
The Street Project will begin on Monday October 5, 2020 on the following streets, Sceva from E Sandusky to 559, Pleasant from E Sandusky to High St, and Locust from E Sandusky to Mill St.
There will be no parking during the week of October 5-9th until the work is completed. These streets will be closed to through traffic until the project is completed. Residents will have access. We ask for your cooperation and patience while we make the improvements.
