If you visit West Chester regularly I’m sure you have most likely received a parking ticket and know how annoying it can be to trek down to the borough offices or mail in the fines. Lucky for us the West Chester Borough recently unveiled (back in December) a new feature that allows people to pay their parking tickets online on the borough’s website!
In order to pay a parking ticket, simply go to the borough’s website and click the blue “Parking Fine Payments” button on the right side of the screen or simply click here to be directed. The service requires that you enter your e-mail address as well as your citation number or license plate number. Let’s face it, no one likes getting a parking ticket, but it happens. At least now we can pay the parking violations from the conviance of our homes.

This just in from the Borough of West Chester, local residents take note. Effective January 1, 2013 the Borough will no longer offer curbside tree limb chipping. Instead, there will be a new yard waste program, for Borough residents only.

• First Friday: Northwest Quadrant

Curbside collection will include bundled branches and yard waste only. Branches and yard waste must be tied with biodegradable twine (cotton or hemp) into manageable bundles no longer than 4 feet. Biodegradable paper bags are acceptable also. NO PLASTIC BAGS. Branches thicker than 4 inches will not be collected. Loose, uncontained yard waste will also not be collected.
