DRIVEWAY PAVING SCAM: The Tinicum Township Police Department would like to warn residents to be aware of traveling contractors soliciting business by going door-to-door offering a "good deal" on home or property improvements, including driveway sealing and paving. Before making any hiring decisions, thoroughly research a company. Requesting bids from 2-3 other companies can help to identify unscrupulous contractors. The Better Business Bureau provides profiles on local companies. Reputable businesses will draw up a contract with a description of materials, labor, start and completion dates, company name, local address, telephone number and registration number. For jobs valued at more than $5,000, state law requires contracts to include additional details. Be wary of anyone asking you to pay cash up front before work can start. Report solicitiations to the Township Police. Posted 4/18/18

Tinicum Township residents who live along a state highway and are concerned with the spraying of herbicides by PennDOT may apply for a permit to eliminate the spraying of vegetation on their property. The PennDOT Application for a Right- of -Way Vegetation Management Permit will restrict PennDOT from spraying herbicide, but also requires the property owner to maintain vegetation on their property in the right-of-way in accordance with PennDOT's roadside management standards. In general, vegetation must be controlled to permit clear travel on the roadway, provide unobstructed sight for motorists and permit the flow of stormwater. Detailed requirements are explained in the permit application. After completing the Right of Way Management Permit, please return to: PennDOT, District 6-0, 7000 Geerdes Blvd, King of Prussia, PA 19406. Posted 7/11/17
