Public Announcements 

New Code Enforcement Program:

Beginning March 9th, Churchill Borough will engage the Turtle Creek Valley Council of Governments (TCVCOG) to conduct code enforcement on behalf of the borough.  This code enforcement program will be a joint service program managed by the TCVCOG between Churchill Borough and Wilkins Township. The Code Enforcement Department at the TCVCOG will be driven by data, using advanced in-the-field technologies that will allow for more efficient and effective enforcement capabilities.

Homeowners will be notified of minor, infrequent violations by way of a "Warning" hangers placed on the front door of the property.  More severe or frequent violations will receive a "Notice of Violation Letter" issued by the code enforcement officer.  In the event that a violation has not been abated by the time frame indicated on the violation, a citation will be filed with the Magisterial District Judge and daily fines may be imposed.  The code enforcement officer will also be conducting occupancy inspections and issuing occupancy permits. 

Effective code enforcement is important not only for maintaining healthy and safe communities for our residents, but it is also a proven tool to reverse the damaging effects brought on by negligent property owners.  We are committed to taking proactive steps to ensure Churchill remains a safe and welcoming community.

Please report any complaints to the:  Turtle Creek Valley Council of Governments (TCVCOG) - Code Enforcement Department (Active March 9th) @ 412-858-3831.
