If you are a victim of a crime, you need to make a police report and in some cases your insurance company will require a police report. Perhaps, you are concerned about a suspicious incident or hazardous condition that you wish to bring to the attention of the Phoenixville Police.
There are several ways that you can make an official police report:
No. You only have to report an accident to the police department if the accident involves: (1) injury to or death of any person; or (2) damage to any vehicle involved to the extent that it cannot be driven under its own power in its customary manner without further damage or hazard to the vehicle, other traffic elements, or the roadway, and therefore requires towing. Otherwise, you may exchange driver, vehicle, and insurance information with the other driver.

Are you missing your bike? Right now, the Phoenixville Police Department has several “found” bikes in storage. Each one of those bikes was abandoned somewhere in the borough, then later recovered by officers. We may have your bike, and we’d like to reunite you with it. You do not need a serial number to get your bike back, but it does expedite the process. Don’t have your serial number? Then how about a sales receipt for the bike? Or, provide a detailed description of the bike, including details about special toe clips, stickers, scratches, dents or any other unique traits your bike might have.
Are you moving or having work done to your property that may require reserved parking? If so, you may want to apply for temporary no parking signs.

Please know the signs must be posted in a residential area at least 24 hours in advance so your neighbors will know about the parking restriction.

The Borough of Phoenixville is happy to announce a new yard waste collection program. We have been awarded grant money by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection in recognition of our efforts and commitment to recycling. Borough Council approved using these grant funds for the purchase of a new yard waste truck and 720 65-gallon yard waste toters.
These new toters are the same size and shape of your current toters, but have a brown lid instead of a gray (trash) or green (recycles only) lid. These toters will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis and only one toter will be given out per household. If you do not get a yard waste toter, please continue to use biodegradable paper bags.
Like all other yard waste, the yard waste collected with this new program will then be delivered to our Compost Site where it will be used to create and replenish our supply of such products as compost, leaf compost, mulch and fine mulch. As a reminder, each household is entitled to three (3) cubic yards of these products per year at no cost. The yard waste collection program runs from April to October and will be done every other week beginning the week of April 1 on your trash day.
We are proud to be recognized for the efforts of our Sanitation Department to recycle this green waste into products that can be reused to enrich our soil, help retain moisture and reduce the need for chemical fertilizers.
These new Yard Waste toters are granted to us from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection as part of the 902 Recycling Grant. These toters are free of charge, but only one is permitted per household.
These toters are special, because they are for YARD WASTE ONLY. No trash is allowed in these receptacles.

Grass disease can be a significant problem on athletic fields and must be controlled to preserve the function of this asset. When athletic fields face excessive stress from wear or environmental conditions such as heat or drought, pest pressures can become a serious problem.
The Borough has hired an outside company that specializes in turf management on athletic fields. They have implemented a comprehensive and effective approach to pest management, termed IPM program. An IPM approach considers all strategies to reduce pest damage to manageable and acceptable levels in the most economical means, while simultaneously considering potential impacts on humans, property, and the environment. In sports field management, these programs involve various agronomic practices, as well as the option to consider the use of chemical applications in situations when other means have been exhausted or deemed ineffective. Where allowed, pesticide use can be incorporated into an overall IPM strategy that also includes non-chemical control methods such as biological controls, cultural methods, or pest monitoring. The judicious use of pesticides, when needed, helps to control disease, insect, and weed pests that will otherwise comprise the quality and safety of the playing surface. The safe and effective use, storage, and handling of pesticides is highly regulated, which helps to ensure that their relative risk is largely mitigated. In addition, pesticides are only applied by licensed professional applicators who are subject to a certification process and must be regularly recertified, further ensuring safety.

Prudent 40 Plus Phosphite Fertilizer application– 2-3x per year, is used like a vitamin to promote plant strength prior to the summer stress period

The Borough hires an outside company to spray the downtown area twice a year; once at the beginning of growing season and once again at the end of summer.

Ranger PRO Herbicide from Monsanto Company. The active ingredient is Isopropylamine salt of glyphosate.
REWARD Landscape and Aquatic Herbicide from Syngenta Crop Protection, LLC. The common name for the active ingredient is Diquat Dibromide. The chemical name is [6,7-dihydrodipyrido(1,2-a:2’1’-c) pyrazinediium dibromide].

A variance is zoning relief which permits minor changes of district area and design regulations where individual properties are both harshly and uniquely burdened by the strict application of the zoning law.
The ability to obtain a variance is restricted and the degree of variation is limited to the minimum change necessary to afford relief, representing the least modification possible to the regulation at issue. Use variations are specifically prohibited. A variance is a modification of the requirements of a zoning district and does not include the substitution of uses assigned to other districts.
No variation may be granted which would adversely affect surrounding property or the general neighborhood. All variations must be in harmony with the intent and purposes of the zoning ordinance.
Certain uses may or may not be appropriate at every location within a specific district and, should the Zoning Hearing Board determine that a use permitted by special exception fails to comply with all of the definitional aspects thereof or would be contrary to the public health, safety, morals and/or welfare of the community at specific locations within a district, that the use would not be permitted there.
