As the 2022 UGI Capital Improvement project to replace gas lines in your area continues, the Town of Bloomsburg would like to take this opportunity to alert residents that a temporary pavement structure will be placed until a final pavement restoration can be completed. If you do not currently have a gas service line to your home and are considering having one installed, you should contact UGI and request that service be installed before final pavement is
The town ordinance states if an excavation is made in a roadway that is less than five years old, the applicant shall be financially responsible for the restoration of the road from the center line to the edge of pavement for the entire length of the road that was disturbed (§ 21-110). This means, if after final paving is complete and you decide to add gas service to your home within five years of the UGI Capital Improvement project completion, you are financially responsible for restoring the road to its previous condition. This can cost upwards of $9,000. If you are considering adding gas service to your home, please contact UGI to avoid paying for these costs.

We are excited to announce that the Bloomsburg Police Department is joining the list of Arconic Foundation recipients!
From 2008 – 2022, Arconic Foundation has provided over 1.8 million dollars to nonprofit and community organizations in and around the Bloomsburg area that focus on enhancing education, promoting environmental sustainability, and advancing social equity. The Bloomsburg Police Department was awarded a $33,000 grant through Arconic Foundation to implement ICAT (Integrating Communications, Assessment and Tactics) training for all officers in Bloomsburg and surrounding areas. ICAT was developed by the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) to provide officers with the mindset, skills, and abilities to effectively defuse volatile incidents in a crisis situation. Chief Scott Price with the Bloomsburg Police Department applied for the grant within his first five months of employment. The Town is grateful to have Chief Price on board with his background and the network connections he brings to the department that serves the community. The results of ICAT were empirically validated by Dr. Robin Engle, University of Cincinnati Research Institute, in a stepped wedge research analysis in Louisville (Louisville Metro Police) which demonstrated significant reductions in officer injuries, citizen injuries and complaints.
