EMS Provider
Reaches Out To
Boro & Westfall


MATAMORAS — Matamoras Borough received a notice from Westfall Township Secretary Jodi Manheim about whether or not the council would be interested in setting up a meeting with a new EMS company.
An EMS service provider called Samaritan Emergency Medical Services contacted Westfall inquiring as to whether they could be of service to the community, and Manheim has offered to coordinate between interested parties.
The Council will contact Westfall Township if they are interested. Fire and EMS service providers have been struggling with a lack of volunteers for years, and the situation has only grown worse since the abrupt departure of the previous ALS service provider.
The Council approved an amendment to the Eastern Pike Regional Act 537 Sewage Plan, adding Matamoras Borough to the list of participating municipalities. All members of the Borough Council signed the agreement Dayne Losee.
The Council approved a joint venture with Milford Borough to apply for an LSA grant to buy a garbage truck. The Council approved Kelley Weber as the grant writer for an additional $1,500, Council President Joseph Sain asked the Board to consider whether the Borough needs to create separate compensation rates dependent upon the monetary value of the grant. ....For more information pick up a copy at a local vendor or subscribe.

Official Paper More Than
Forty Years

MILFORD — Although it has been publishing much, much longer, the Pike County Dispatch has been the newspaper of record for the County of Pike for more than 40 years. That means the Dispatch is the place to go to find out about public meetings, estate notices, bids, public hearings, real estate sales and transactions, and Sheriff sales.

The Pike County Commissioners listed the Dispatch as an official newspaper for legal notices during their opening meeting of 2014, and once again, during their annual reorganization meetings on the first business day of the New Year, most of the other municipalities in Pike County followed suit. So far, Milford and Matamoras Boroughs, and Westfall, Dingman, Delaware, Shohola, Blooming Grove. Milford and Lehman Townships have made it their business to have the Dispatch as an official newspaper.

So make it your business to keep up with all the news in Pike to print, including official business and legal notices from your town.
