Dear Parkesburg Borough Residents:

Please clear your sidewalks.
In accordance with Ordinance 490, Sidewalks shall be clear of snow and ice within 36 hours of the cessation of the fall of snow, hail or sleet, or the lifting of a snow emergency.
Additionally, and for the safety of our street's department  personnel, clear a path to, and around, your trash receptical.  Please keep lids on the trash cans to prevent water, snow and ice as this adds pounds and makes it difficult and dangerous for the men.  Unfortunatly and because of the dangerous conditions to the men picking up the trash, some of the trash will not be picked up. 

Please clear a path to the trash.

Thank you,
Joe
Parkesburg Borough

A MESSAGE FROM PECO:
We have seen an increase in reports of payment scams in your area. These scammers are contacting PECO customers and falsely claiming their electric or gas service will be disconnected unless payment is made immediately. These scammers use tactics such as “spoofing” to manipulate the Caller ID phone number displayed on your phone so that it appears to be a PECO phone number.
PECO will never demand immediate payment, nor will we ever require one specific form of payment, such as a prepaid card or digital currency. Do not pay on-site for services, PECO employees will never ask for or demand cash payments or personal banking information in-person. You should never provide anyone access to your home who claims to be from PECO, or a contractor working for PECO, unless the person has proper identification.
For more information on payment scams and what you can do to keep your information safe, visit peco.com/scams. If you are ever suspicious of a caller claiming to be from PECO, hang up and call us directly at 1-800-494-4000.
