New groundhog postmark available at post office

February 9, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY —
Visitors may have departed until next Groundhog Day, but everyone will continue to be reminded that Punxsutawney remains the Weather Capital of the World, thanks to Punxsy Phil and the post office.

As Groundhog Day arrived this year, so did a new groundhog postmark. In a contest seeking submissions last year, the winner is Sandy Zambory, who submitted two drawings to the Punxsutawney Area Chamber of Commerce, which were then forwarded to the post office.

Borough clarifies guidelines on snow-removal ordinance

February 9, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — During Tuesday’s Public Safety meeting, Borough Manager Ben White reminded residents and property owners of an ordinance about clearing sidewalks.

The ordinance says that within 24 hours of a snow event, people are required to remove snow and ice from their sidewalks. If the ice is too thick to break, residents and business owners must put something down for traction.

White said Code Enforcement Officer Mary McHenry will be looking for safety hazards throughout winter.

Indiana DPW director: Snow can be ‘budget buster’

INDIANA — The Borough of Punxsutawney isn't the only municipality that struggles with downtown snow removal.

The director of Public Works for the Borough of Indiana, Dave Fairman, said the borough typically doesn't remove snow from the downtown district on a regular basis.

Due to a snow emergency last winter, Indiana's eight-man Public Works crew did remove snow from the downtown district with the assistance from sub-contractors and a large snow blower from PennDOT.
