Today is Wednesday, March 12, 2014!
Remember in the event that we have more snow! Please make sure all cars are off the road whenever we have a winter storm. It makes plowing the roads easier for the Borough Employees and we can clear the roads from curb to curb. When shoveling, please do not throw the snow into the roads. Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated.
Driveway and Sidewalk clearing when it snows: Please keep in mind when clearing your driveway or sidewalk in the Borough when it snows not to throw the snow into the street. Our Borough Public Works employees take the time to clear the roads to make them safe for our residents and it is also against the LAW. Thank you for your continued support of West Grove Borough.

Are you planning on selling your property? - If so, the Borough of West Grove adopted an ordinance that a Transfer Inspection must be done prior to settlement. The forms can be found on our website under Borough Information and Forms & Applications. You will need to print the Transfer of Property Application, the Transfer of Property Inspection List and the Sewer & Water Certification Form. The inspection is scheduled about one month prior to settlement to allow time in case of failing the inspection. Please follow everything on the Inspection List because that is what our Inspector will be inspecting. The Sewer & Water Certification is done a day or two prior to settlement so we can check the meter and get a reading so the sellers are billed for the water they have consumed before moving. If you have any questions, please call Trisha or Sharon at 610-869-2792. Thanks!
Are you planning on renting your property? - Have you decided to rent your house?
