Electric Bills Lost or Delayed from Postal Service

For the past several months, there has been an issue with electric bills that are mailed not being delivered or arriving late to residents.  Please be aware the bills go to Harrisburg and back because they are bulk mail. They do not come from Catawissa’s local Post Office.

If residents do not receive their bill by the seventh of the month, call the Borough Hall at 570-356-2561, and we will prepare a replacement bill.  The Borough is not waiving late penalties for bills due to issues with mailed bills.

The Borough also offers options to customers to have bills sent electronically each month to an email account, instead of through the mail, as well as ACH payments, ACH payments will be automatically withdrawn from your bank account on the 15th of the each month.

The ACH Form can be found under the Forms menu. Please fill out and return to the Borough Hall with a voided check.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may be causing. We are all at the mercy of the postal service.

Volunteers Needed

Catawissa Borough is looking for volunteers to assist with addressing the feral cat colonies within the Borough.  The Borough is partnering with No Nonsense Neutering in a “trap, neuter, return” program, a non-lethal approach to animal control. 

The program involves trapping feral cats; taking them to the No Nonsense Neutering Clinic in Mahanoy City where they are fixed, vaccinated, wormed and flea treated; and then rereleasing the cats in the same location they were found.  Volunteers will receive help from No Nonsense Neutering volunteers on the program.  Volunteers also will be responsible for transporting cats to Mahanoy City and releasing them after being fixed.  Traps will be provided and Catawissa Borough is paying all veterinary costs.           

The Borough is particularly looking for volunteers to assist with trapping at the colony on Railroad and Main Streets; homes in the country that need “barn cats” to assist with rodent control; and assistance with colonies that are located on the north side of town, on North 2nd, 3rd and 4th Streets.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Catawissa Borough Manager at (570) 356-2561, or email at manager@catawissaboro.com.  More information on No Nonsense Neutering is available on their website, www.nnnlv.org.
