NOTICE REGARDING ELECTRIC CHARGES:
If your electric rate seems higher it is due to extreme weather and other market driven conditions the power supply costs incurred in the month of January were significantly higher than expected for many of its members (AMP). Plant outages, high electric demand, and constrained transmissions lines, coupled with constrained natural gas supplies to some power plants, resulted in emergency operations on a number of days. The tight supply situation caused unusually high energy prices and price volatility throughout the month.
Conserving energy will help keep costs down. It's not always convenient to turn your heat down but any conservation measures you take will be effective.
OPEN BURN - FIRE PITS, CHIMNEAS, BURN BARRELS OR OTHER RELATED OPEN BURN CONTAINERS are not permitted in the Borough of Royalton. Please remember there is NO OPEN BURNING allowed in the Borough. An electric or gas grill is permitted for cooking of food.
Ordinance #153 No open burn

TO ALL DOG OWNERS
There are rules that are in place that require anyone with a dog to not allow or permit their dog to befoul, corrupt, defile, or otherwise desecrate with feces, urine, or vomit on any public street, sidewalk, or any property other than that of the dog's owner, custodian, or keeper thereof.
Basically, know that when you are walking your dog(s) and they do any of their business on any property other than your own, you are required to remove it. Remember to carry a disposal bag with you and respect your neighbors by cleaning up after your pet.
Also, it is apparent that dogs bark however if your dog is disturbing the peace of your neighbor or neighborhood that is another story. Please be aware of the length of time your dog is outside barking.
Please take the responsibility that goes along with having a dog. Your neighbors will appreciate it and you will not be cited and fined for violating the dog ordinance.
Dog licensing is required for all dogs 3 months of age and older. Please see the following link to purchase your dog licenses.
