Central Berks Codes Department
February 14, 2017 the Mount Penn Borough Council adopted a Blight Prevention Ordinance (#837), enabling our codes officer to more readily, and without delay, address “nuisance” type of property maintenance issues such as grass, weeds and rubbish. Our codes officer will then be afforded the opportunity to tackle major issues through the Property Maintenance Code summary citation process with the Magisterial District Court. Our ordinance has been modeled after efforts of other municipalities throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
The Borough of Mount Penn is committed to maintaining a high quality environment within our neighborhood. The Central Berks Regional Codes Department, in conjunction with Lower Alsace and our citizens, has pledged to uphold and sustain a well groomed community. In 2016 Borough Council hired Adam Bender, Property Maintenance Inspector, if you see him around your neighborhood, take a moment to say hello. You may address your concerns, complaints, or compliments verbally by contacting Adam at 610-898-0780.
