Code Enforcement

    CODE ENFORECEMENT OFFICER:                   Ed Crates            emcrates@aol.com


The Code Enforcement Officer enforces the long standing rules for how each of us and our neighbors must maintain our respective properties.  These regulations are to promote the health, safety and comfort of the citizens and visitors.  Ordinances are changed from time to time by Springdale Borough Council to be more consistent with Pennsylvania State recommendations and have adopted the Property Maintenance Code.


    The following is a list of issues frequently found to be out of compliance, whether the property is owner occupied or a landlord/tenant situation:


To search Ordinances go to:




-Address clearly displayed in 4” numbers


-Trees/shrubs overhanding the road, sidewalk, neighbor or abutting alley


-Roof drains out-falling onto the sidewalk rather than under to the curb or sump pumps out-falling to the curb instead of into a pit on the property or directly into the storm sewer.


-Handrails for steps and porches


-Sidewalks uneven and broken


-Vehicles including boats, campers, trailers, motorcycles, cars and trucks without current registration and/or inspection


   Springdale Borough has basic health and safety rules and regulations, some of which are triggered by the transfer of a property or change in use or occupancy.


-Smoke detectors in each bedroom and each floor


-Ground Fault Interrupt Outlets near water sources


-Handrail and step enclosures (especially basement steps)


-Improperly vented gas furnace or hot water tanks


    Changes in use or occupancy require an Occupancy Inspection and Tenant Registration.  The Occupancy Inspection fee is paid at the Springdale Borough Office prior to the Code Enforcement Office inspecting the property.  The Code Enforcement Officer will then contact you to set up a time for the inspection.  In the event that the property does not pass inspection, re-inspection fees must be paid at the Springdale Borough Office prior to the Code Enforcement Officer scheduling the re-inspection appointment.  All tenants must be registered at the Springdale Borough Office.


    The tenant is required to make a Water Deposit, the landlord is required to sign the Water Agreement.  Landlords are encouraged to check on the status of tenants water, sewer and trash bills on a regular basis. 

If you are signing up for a water account please arrive at the Borough Office by 3:00 p.m. to complete all of the paperwork.


    Property transfers, including sales, bequests and family transfers, require a dye test in addition to the occupancy inspection.
