Douglas J. Wagner

Position Responsibilities & Description

The salary of the Mayor of the Borough of Seven Valleys is hereby fixed at the rate of $70 per month, beginning with the month after the enactment and approval of this chapter.
§ 44-2. Notice of violation; performance of work by borough; municipal claims. The Borough Mayor, any police officer of the borough, or any official or other person designated by the Borough Council, are hereby authorized to give notice in writing to the owner, occupant or other person having a present interest of any premises whereon weeds or similar vegetation are growing or remain in violation of the provisions of this chapter, directing and requiring such person to remove, trim or cut such weeds or similar vegetation so as to conform to the requirements of this chapter within five days after issuance of such notice. In the event any person fails to comply with such notice, the borough may cause the same to be removed, trimmed or cut, and the cost thereof, together with a penalty of 10%, shall be paid by such person, and the borough may file the amount of the same in the Office of the Prothonotary of York County, Pennsylvania as a lien against the real estate involved, and may collect the same in the manner provided by law for the filing and collecting of municipal claims. The Borough of Seven Valleys may proceed in any other manner for enforcement of this chapter or collection of any amounts which may be due hereunder, and nothing herein contained shall be construed to limit the remedies of the borough. 4401

The Mayor may cancel all otherwise permitted outside fires on those third Saturdays of any month where the Mayor and the Fire Chief or designee have determined that a fire danger exists due to lack of precipitation, whereupon all burning of any material whatsoever out of doors within the Borough of Seven Valleys shall be prohibited for such Saturdays. Upon making such determination, the Mayor shall issue a statement or proclamation to that effect and shall make the contents thereof available to the local newspapers and may make the same available to the other news media as the Mayor may deem appropriate. Before any person or entity ignites any outside fire which may be otherwise permitted under the exception stated in § 53-2 hereof, such person or entity shall contact the Mayor or the Fire Chief or designee to determine whether a fire danger has been declared.

A. The Mayor and Emergency Management Coordinator shall have the following powers to regulate traffic and parking temporarily and in time of emergency:

( 1) In the case of fire, flood, storm or other emergency, to establish temporary traffic and/or parking regulations.

(2) In the case of emergency public works or public events of limited scope or duration, to restrict or prohibit traffic and/or parking in limited areas for periods of not more than 72 hours.

B. These temporary and emergency regulations shall be enforced by the Mayor and the police in the same manner as permanent regulations. Any person who drives or parks a vehicle in violation of any such regulation or who shall move, remove, destroy, injure or deface any sign or marking erected, posted or made to give notice of any such regulation shall, upon conviction thereof, be liable to the penalty set forth in the law or elsewhere in this chapter for a violation of such nature.

In order to facilitate the movement of traffic and to combat the hazards of snow and ice on the snow emergency routes named pursuant to this article, the Mayor, in his discretion, may declare a snow and ice emergency (designated in this article as a “snow emergency”).
Information on the existence of a snow emergency may be given by the borough through radio, newspaper or other available mediamedia, and information on the termination of the
emergency may be given by use of the same media.
