From the desk of Stephanie Reisch
Code Enforcement Officer
We live in a beautiful area and have a very nice town (borough). My job is to enforce the ordinances so that the town can continue to be a nice place to live.
Unfortunately the town is not complying with the ordinances in place. My job again is to enforce the existing ordinances. I plan to do so.
If you want to know about the ordinances or just wish to chat about the town you can call the office 570.785.3326 and make an appointment to meet with me.
My hours vary. I try to be in the office
Tuesday, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9am – Noon. If the time is not convenient for you – call and arrangements can be made.
Premises Identification is very important for the safety and protection of all Resident and Business properties. In attending a class recently, the person who taught the class stated having numbers on a residence or business determines whether your pizza is delivered hot or cold.
The State of Pennsylvania adopted the International Property Maintenance Code 2009 and Forest City Borough adopted it as well. The code states that all premises must have numbers a minimum of 4” high by 0.5 inches wide and a contrasting color from the background they are placed upon. The measurements are specific so that anyone from the street can view the numbers. For instance, any emergency personnel, delivery person or whomever needs to identify your premises. If you have any questions please contact this office 570.785.3326.
