Burglary in the Borough - Mid-morning on October 11th a burglary occurred at a residence in the 1500 block of Cortland Ave. The police are seeking a white male, approximately 5'8''  and thin, in his early 20’s with a lisp. The male was carrying a back pack at the time. Fingerprints were found and they are working on identifying this person. The police asked the Borough to distribute this information to our residents via the Borough website and urge all residents to call police immediately at 610-655-6111 or 610-655 6116 if you see anyone acting suspiciously or anyone fitting this description.  Thank you.

Tuesday yard waste pickups resumed in March this year and will continue through Tuesday, December 9, 2014.  Residents are encouraged to put grass clippings, weeds, bush/shrubbery clippings and small branches (bundled, no longer than 4 feet in length and weighing less than 40 pounds) out for pickup.  Our trash hauler prefers that yard waste be put in brown paper, biodegradable bags but can also be put loose in open trash containers.  Brown paper biodegradable bags are available at home supply centers such as Sears Hardware, Lowe's and Home Depot. 
Questions can be directed to the Borough Office at 610-777-7327 or Eagle Disposal at 717-355-9560.     
Many Kenhorst property owners have been approached recently by contractors regarding the possible need for their roof to be replaced due to damage resulting from the May hail storm.  
Property owners and contractors are reminded of the following:
A building permit is required if 25% or more of the roof is being replaced.  Siding and gutter work does not require a permit.  Roof permit application forms can be obtained at the Borough Office or accessed online:  
The cost for a roof permit is $74.00 and must be applied for and approved prior to the start of work.  Per Borough Ordinance, the permit fee will be doubled if work is begun prior to the permit being issued.      
Kenhorst Borough requires that a permit be obtained before any sales representative is authorized to solicit door-to-door.  Property owners are strongly encouraged to ask to see a Borough Solicitation permit which will clearly state the specific date that the permit is approved for.  Contact the Reading Police immediately at 610-655-6111 or 610-655-6116 if you are solicited by someone who cannot produce their approved Kenhorst Solicitation permit. 
Please contact the Borough Office with any questions at 610-777-7327 or email
