The new consolidated Borough Code under Title 8 of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes became effective on June 18, 2014. The “new Borough Code” is the result of many years of input from borough officials, committee members reviewing each section, assistance from the Local Government Commission, and assessment by the General Assembly. Act 43 of 2012 reenacted the Borough Code with these changes.
