CRC Watersheds Association and PSU-Brandywine host “Backyard Solutions for Healthy Streams”

The Chester Ridley Crum Watersheds Association (CRC) and Penn State University-Brandywine invite area residents to join them on Sunday, February 28, for “Backyard Solutions for Healthy Streams: Lessons from Philadelphia’s Green City, Clean Waters Program.” The talk begins at 2:00 pm at Penn State-Brandywine’s Tomezsko Building auditorium and features Maggie Dunn of the Philadelphia Water Department. The program is free and open to the public and advance registration is recommended due to limited space.

“Backyard Solutions for Healthy Streams” will highlight the innovative approaches being used in the City of Philadelphia on residential properties to reduce polluted runoff and improve water quality in streams. CRC’s Executive Director, Brian Byrnes, notes that “Green City, Clean Waters is showing that even owners of small residential lots can take meaningful steps to improve the water quality in their local streams. We are thrilled to give residents in Delaware and Chester Counties an opportunity to see what is working in the city and gather ideas on how they can contribute in their communities.”

Attendees may register online through CRC’s website at www.crcwatersheds.org, or by contacting the CRC office at 610-359-1440 or info@crcwatersheds.org to reserve a spot.

Local Tax Return is Due April 18

It’s that time of year again. The 2015 local earned income tax return filing deadline is approaching. The due date is extended to Monday April 18 this year because Washington DC is commemorating Emancipation Day on Friday April 15.

Did you know the quickest way to get your refund is to file online? If you live and work in Pennsylvania, you can e-file on our tax administrator’s secure website, which is available 24/7 at www.KeystoneCollects.com.

Keystone Collections Group’s e-file is the easy, fast and secure way to file your 2015 tax return. It lets you file your tax return when it is most convenient for you. You will need your W-2, your Social Security Number and any other income documents that may apply (such as a PA-UE or a Schedule C).

Keystone redesigned e-file to make it even faster and more user-friendly.

If you have questions regarding local tax filing, visit Keystone’s Frequently Asked Questions or call Keystone’s Taxpayer Helpline at 1-888-328-0565 to speak with a local, knowledgeable Taxpayer Service Agent.

Police Updates


The Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department in conjunction with the AIM Group, LLC are proud to announce that beginning, Monday, November 16, 2015 people who conduct transactions, through online sites such as Craigslist, may use the lobby and front parking lot area of the Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department as a “Safe Trade” location to conduct these transactions.

The AIM Group, a consulting company for classified advertising businesses, launched the “Safe Trade” initiative as a public service to promote the use of police facilities for members of the public to meet and conduct transactions with strangers.

The police department will designate (2) parking spaces directly in front of our building as “Safe Trade” locations. These marked spaces are subject to 24-hour video recording. The lobby of the police department, which is also under 24-hour video recording, will be open to persons wishing to conduct online transactions during weekdays ONLY (Monday thru Friday), excluding observed national holidays, during the hours of 9:00 am and 3:00 pm.

Anyone wishing to use the parking lot and/or lobby of the Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department should be aware that while all transactions will be subject to video recording, police officers will not assist or witness any transactions.

There are some restrictions when choosing to use the police department lobby or parking lot. Under no circumstances may someone conduct a transaction involving the sale of any weapon or any illegal item at the police department.

For more information on “Safe Trade” and for Online Transaction Safety Tips, please visit our website at www.westtownpolice.org.
