Spruce Street Traffic Improvement

Another safety change will make Spruce Street a one way street westbound between West Beaver Street and Linden Street.

Fire Sirens in Zelienople

Ever wonder what those fire horns mean? According to Zelienople Fire Chief Rob Reeb, the Zelienople Fire Siren blows for 3 reasons:  a)  If it blows just once = It's normally a test or some sort of check on the system, unless there is a system failure.  b) If it blows 7 cycles = it's for an Emergency - Fire, Rescue or people in need of assistance.  c) If it blows and keeps blowing = it's a close weather related sighting.

The 2013 Zelienople Borough Annual Drinking Water Quality Report is now available!  Paper copies of the report may be obtained at the borough administrative office.  


Attaching signs to structures, poles, objects, etc., by means of chains, cords, rope, wire, etc. is prohibited.  Signs placed in violation of this ordinance will result in immediate removal of the sign.

Reminder of Sign Ordinance

In our effort to not clutter up our 4 corner park area, no signs are to be placed anywhere within the 4 corner park area ( borough property) without first obtaining permission. This is required by Borough Ordinance. Any signs that are placed there can be removed immediately without notice to the owner. Please understand we support our local organizations but this area is not to be used as a place for advertisement whether it be for profit or nonprofit. If any organization  wants to place a sign of some kind please notify the borough office  well before the event being advertised so your request has time to be considered and decided upon. Your understanding and cooperation is appreciated.
