The Board of Supervisors approved an extension to the face period for the payment of Township real estate taxes to December 31 (the orginal deadline was May 31). Montgomery County approved an identical extension for the payment of County real estate taxes.
Please note that, at this time, there has been no change to the due date for the payment of Methacton School District real estate taxes. There has also been no change to the due dates for interim bills.
Our community's Real Estate Tax Collector, Pat Gramm, is receiving in-person tax payments during regular office hours as listed on the bill at a walk-up window located directly across from the drop box. During non-office hours, payments may be placed in the drop box, or mailed to Post Office Box 97, Worcester, PA 19490.
Questions about real estate taxes? Contact Pat at (610) 489-4070, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that there is no longer a Per Capita Tax so no residents will receive these bills going forward.
This year Worcester Township will continue implementation of its annual road improvement program. This program is designed to maximize the useful life of infrastructure through an aggressive maintenance plan and appropriately-scheduled capital improvements. The program allows the Township to maintain nearly 60 miles of roads in good condition.
The maintenance plan includes pothole repair, street sweeping, roadside brush trimming, roadside swale maintenance and patch milling. The capital plan includes the replacement of culverts and storm water pipes and the resurfacing and reconstruction of roads. On average, the Township resurfaces and/or reconstructs between three and five miles of roadways each year.
In 2020 the following roads will be resurfaced:
- Artmar Road;
- Berks Road, from Morris Road to Skippack Pike;
- Credley Road;
- Ernest Lane;
- Ethel Avenue;
- Hogarth Lane;
- Morris Road, from Valley Forge Road to Sunny Ayre Drive; and,
- Old Orchard Road.
The work will take place this summer, and we'll aim to complete all by Labor Day, if permitted by Mother Nature. Schedule information will be posted when received.
Motorists using the above-noted roads may experience delays during construction. We thank folks for their understanding and patience as we work to improve our community’s roadways.
