Residents are reminded Street Sweeping takes place every month on the 3rd Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8:00am-5:00pm. Please take notice to the posted signs to avoid parking tickets. If you receive a parking ticket, please pay it promptly. Failure to pay a $15.00 parking ticket will result in a Traffic Citation being issued.
Warmer temperatures mean an increase in outdoor activity of children in the Borough. Parents, please help ensure your children's safety by making them wear helmets when riding bicycles and scooters. PA laws require all children under the age of 12 to wear an approved helmet when riding a bicycle or scooter. Parents are also reminded Marysville Borough has a Curfew Ordinance. Curfew for minors under age 14 years is 10:00pm, for minors between age 14 and 18 years, curfew is 11:00pm. Please be aware that anyone on a bicycle or scooter has the duties to obey stop signs and other traffic control devices as someone operating a motor vehicle.
Warmer weather also means an increase of motorcycles on Pennsylvania roadways. Please "Watch For Motorcycles". I'd like to also remind all drivers, it is illegal to text and drive in Pennsylvania. This includes texting while at red lights and stop signs. Distracted driving has become the #1 contributing factor of all Motor Vehicle Accidents in the United States. No text is worth dying for or worse yet killing someone.
Residents are reminded it is unlawful to let cats and dogs run at large. ALL cats and dogs must be leashed or under direct physical control at all times. Owners are also responsible for picking up and properly disposing of their pet's waste. For those using the Memorial Walking Path at the Marysville Lions Club, plastic bags and disposal containers are provided for pet waste.
Marysville Police Department has a Medication Drop Box located inside the Borough Office. Any unwanted or unused medication in pill or tablet form can be dropped in the drop box. No liquid medications can be accepted. No information is required from persons dropping off medication. The Borough office is open Monday-Friday from 7am-3pm. Two other drop boxes are located in the Perry County Courthouse in New Bloomfield and Pennsylvania State Police Barracks in Newport.
Marysville PD is still offering a Special Needs Resident Registry Program for our residents. The program is for residents with any special needs to include but not limited to Dementia, Alzheimer's, Autism, physical limitations, and electricity dependent (example: oxygen machine). Residents with such needs can complete a Special Needs Resident Data Registration Form. The form includes a current photo, name, address, physical attributes, medical summary, emergency contacts, and other information important to aid officers and other first responders during an emergency situation. Emergency situations could include medical emergency, missing person/wandering, natural disaster, power outage or other critical incident. For more information on this program, or to enroll yourself or loved one, please contact Marysville Borough Police or the Marysville Borough Office.
