Update: March 8,2016 – Certification not required for refinancing!
July 2016 – The PA Department of Environmental Protection and the Johnstown Redevelopment Authority have mandated that the Borough remove inflow and infiltration from the sanitary sewer lines. The Borough had to borrow $15,702,000 from PennVest to finance the Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Project. In order to pay back the loans, PennVest advised what amount we need to charge our customers. Consequently, the surcharge on the Borough sewer bill increased to $124.00 per quarter beginning with the July 2016 billing. We anticipate work to begin on the Borough sewer mains in September.
