According to Klimer City Manager Sonia Schrenkel, Klimer City Police will begin to more strictly enforce grass and garbage removal regulations starting next week.
Schrenkel said during a city council meeting on Wednesday that residents who leave grass or garbage unattended face fines.
“I just want to remind everyone that the police will start implementing Resolution 277, and everyone should keep their grass,” Schrenkel said. “I’ve traveled around the city before, and there are a lot of places where the grass isn’t mowed.”
Schrenkel said residents who violate the rules of the grass will receive one message and then another – daily fines until the violation is eliminated.
Residents also face fines for leaving garbage cans and garbage bags for too long.
“Garbage cans need to be removed from the street 24 hours after the garbage has been removed,” Schrenkel said. “And garbage bags can’t come out before 24 hours before pickup.”
In other news Wednesday, district council members unanimously approved two proposals by council vice president Steph Brillhart to adopt resolution № 2022-2 and policy № 02-2022, which concerned compensation to firefighters and clothing assistance for district staff. respectively.
Resolution № 2022-2 provided that all active firefighters would be covered by compensatory insurance for district workers. Social members will not be covered.

Policy № 02-2022 provides a clothing allowance of $ 200 for the fiscal year for Clymer Borough staff members.
