“Thank You” to ServErie: A special “Thank You” goes out to the dozens of volunteers who spent more than 3-1/2 hours of their time on Saturday, July 26th performing various maintenance tasks in our parks. Using supplies provided by the Borough along with some of their own tools, the volunteers of various ages stained the gazebo, painted a trellis, playground equipment, tables and benches and also repaired a door and painted the storage building at the baseball fields. The project was coordinated by Councilor Dan Knapp with assistance from Public Works Supervisor Joe Ball.

Sewer Backup – Call Us First: Residents are reminded that if the sewer is clogged or backed-up, call the Borough before calling a plumber. We will check the main line outside your residence at no charge, and advise you if the problem is in your lateral. During normal business hours (M-F 9:00-5:30), call 814-899-9124. Evenings, weekends and holidays, call the police non-emergency number: 814-899-0681.
Dispose of Old Drugs: We now have a MedReturn unit installed in the main hallway of Borough Hall. The self-service unit is available during normal business hours: Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 5:30pm. Items accepted for disposal include: prescriptions; prescription patches; prescription medications; prescription ointments; over-the-counter medications; vitamins; samples and medications for pets. Items NOT accepted are: hydrogen peroxide; inhalers; aerosol cans; ointments, lotions & liquids; medication from businesses or clinics; needles (sharps) and thermometers. There is no charge to dispose of qualifying items.
Recycling Center is not “Dump”: Please note that the Recycling Center at the eastern end of Woodlawn Avenue is NOT a dump. Leaving trash at the site at any time other than a scheduled cleanup day is considered illegal dumping and may be subject to prosecution. Large items and extra trash must be paid for and picked-up. Recyclable materials should be placed in the appropriate container – cardboard should be broken-down to fit in the slots. Please close the bin doors when finished loading. Acceptable plastics are #1 and #2 and only clear glass is recyclable. Any plastic other than #1 and #2 as well as all brown, green and even slightly-tinted glass should go in the trash. If you witness illegal dumping, please report it to the Police Dept at 814-899-0681. Thank you for your cooperation.
Sewer/Garbage Account Balances: We announced at the time we hired Erie Water Works to do our billing for sewer and garbage that any customers with $300 or more owed for sewer and garbage would have $300 added to the first quarter bill, and anything over $300 would remain with the Borough for collection. To reduce any hardship on those faced with paying the $300, we have waited to invoice the balances over $300. Letters to the affected residents seeking to make arrangements to collect remaining outstanding balances will be mailed shortly, with “Final Notice” letters to non-responders to follow. These balances are payable to the Borough of Wesleyville, NOT Erie Water Works. See the original billing change letter here: EWW Customer Billing Letter and the flyer here: Erie Water Works Sewer Garbage Collection Ntce Questions or concerns about the process should be directed to Borough Manager Pete Nye at 814-899-9124 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
American Legion Donates to Parks: Thank you to Carl Neff Post 571, American Legion, for its donation on June 5th of $2,000 to be used for improvement of Borough parks. This follows the previous donation of several tasers valued at over $5,000 to the Police Department.
