IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS

    

A MESSAGE FROM THE MANHEIM BOROUGH OFFICE

IMPORTANT! Due to saturated soil conditions from the excessive rainfall we have received over the past 2 months, if the remnants of Hurricane Florence reach our area the possibilities of flooding will be extremely high. If you are in a location that has experienced flooding already this year, or in the past during Tropical Storm Lee, please begin now to take necessary precautions. Hopefully Florence will turn back out to sea before affecting us, but we urge everyone to be prepared just in case.

The Borough is asking that if you incurred flood damage during the 8/31/18 flooding event, to submit a form found HERE, and submit it their office at 15 East High Street, Manheim. The Borough will then pass your application to County Emergency Management. They are also reporting that if you need help with the form, to call 211. Your information can recorded there, and sent to volunteer groups that provide assistance, free of charge.
