Borough Council is seeking a citizen volunteer to serve on the Borough Shade Tree Commission. The Commission is made up of three members who meet four times per year and serve for a five-year term. The Commission is authorized by ordinance to “plant, remove, maintain and protect shade trees”. Many of the shade trees are street trees planted by the Borough in the public street right-of-way. The Commission also helps to secure grants for the Borough to plant trees in the parks and other public places, and acts as an advocate to maintain an adequate tree canopy to enhance the natural and built environments. Some knowledge of trees and tree tendering would be helpful, but is not required. Interested citizens may address a letter of interest to Borough Council and deliver it to the attention of the Borough Manager, 510 Herman Avenue, Lemoyne, PA 17043.
