Achievements in 2018

We are excited to announce no tax increase for 2019.

  • Due to the amount of rain this year, the Borough’s 2018 street project will not be completed until the spring of 2019.  The total cost of the street project was awarded in the amount of $170,046
  • Multiple changes were made to enhance the Parklet in the heart of town. 
  • A new F-550 was purchased to support the Public Works team.  Through aggressive bidding we received $10,000 dollars in savings.
  • By teaming up with our citizens and having common sense solutions, the negative behavior at the South 6thStreet playground has decreased.
  • Communication with our fellow citizens has increased with the addition of a Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts.
  • The Borough’s ordinances are being reviewed, changed if necessary and will be sent for codification in 2019.
  • A new Public Works team member will be hired in the near future. 
  • A new garbage contract has been awarded which includes automated garbage and recycling beginning in 2019.  In addition, e-waste has also been included. 
  • Two homes located on South 3rd Street have been demolished.  Liens will be placed on the properties to recoup demolition costs.

                 About Us

Youngwood was established in 1899 and built upon land owned by Mr. John Y. Woods. Mr. Woods combined his maternal grandfather's moniker, Young, with his own surname to create the title of the borough that we now know of as "Youngwood."
