Township Police Warn of driveway and home repair scams occurring this time of year.

Residents should be wary of unknown persons showing up at their home to solicit driveway paving or other home repairs. Although they may be a legitimate business, the police recommend that the homeowner seek out their own contractors who can provide references with a proven track record. Residents are urged to call the police if they have any question regarding the legitimacy of any person showing up at their home uninvited.

Tinicum Township Park & Recreation Committee is very happy to announce that our first "Little Library" has been installed by our Public Works crew. The library was designed, constructed, and donated by Phil Szymanowski of Phil Built. It is a fine example of Phil's craftsmanship and generosity.
Centrally located at the township building (on the corner of the building by the flag pole), it is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!! Please feel free to bring a book or two to place in the library, and take a book or two to read yourself. The books you borrow can either be returned to the library - or you can pass it on to your family or friends, or keep for your collection!
Your book donations are appreciated, just make sure the door closes completely to prevent books from being exposed to the elements. Most genres are acceptable - childrens' books too! Please leave only family friendly reading materials in our library.

The Tinicum Township Audit has been completed. Please click on the link to view the financial statement
