Clean as a Whistle

As you prepare your business for the promising holiday season just around the corner, we want to remind everyone to focus on the outside as well.  


The MBA is conducting monthly cleanup drives to sweep sidewalks all along State Street and business district side streets in partnership with TimeBank Media.  The borough is ensuring the street sweeper machine is running several times per week and will be walking the business district periodically to remind merchants where codes are not in compliance.


Please help us clean up our act by sweeping your storefront sidewalks regularly and making sure to pickup with a dustpan.  Pushing debris into the street only soils parking spaces and blows trash around town.  And don't forget the backs of your businesses... we want our visitors to see closed trash enclosures, capped trash cans and to have a generally pleasant experience wherever they drive and stroll in Media. Thank you for your cooperation!

A reminder for Media businesses.  Ordinance 1096, enacted on July 19, 2012, requires owners/proprietors to post a street address on the rear doors of their businesses.  Attached here are the ordinance and a copy of the letter the borough distributed regarding this ordinance.  This ordinance only applies to certain situations, so please read to see if this applies to your business.
