Don’t people realize the funding source sign is a waste of money?
Consider the area across from Ray's Service Station. Was so deep one day it made my belt slip on my car.
Awesome! Could we get some on Banks Street too please? The 2900 block of Banks turns into a river any time we get even a moderate amount of rain. The only drain for 3 blocks is at the end of our street and around the corner. It is always covered in debris too. We need a drain at the top of our street to prevent the flooding we always get.
As we approach Memorial Day weekend please keep in mind Republic trash collection services will be delayed one day. ... See MoreSee Less

This was the week yard waste was to be removed but Republic ignored my containers. They did that several times last summer also. Who do I contact regarding this?

*** Busy Weekend for the 30 Crew***
Once again, the July 4th holiday weekend proved to be a busy one for our volunteers! On Saturday July 4th around 2245 hrs, Harrisburg City units were dispatched to the area of 13th and Bailey St for a reported house fire. City companies arrived with a working fire to the rear. Moments later heavy fire engulfed the structure with fire spreading to 3 other houses. City command requested the 1st alarm. Engine 30 with a crew of 6 was dispatched for a outside fire in the 1-4 box when city command struck the 2nd alarm diverting the engine to the scene. Engine 30 crew was assigned to the exposure building with fire suppression and extensive overhaul. Engine 30 crew also assisted Harrisburg units with repacking supply line. Engine 30 remained on scene for over 3 hours before going available. Thank you once again to Engine 47-1 for covering our first due and helping with cleaning our tools!
This evening around 1620 hrs, Harrisburg city units were dispatched to a reported house fire on Logan St. while en-route, Dauphin communications advised of another house fire on Swatara St on the “hill” with rapid calls.
