While celebrating the holiday, we would like to remind all residents that the Discharge of Fireworks within the Borough are NOT permitted. Pennsylvania Law does permit the use and possession of Consumer Grade Fireworks, although the following Rules do apply:
- A person must be at least 18 years of age;
- A person may NOT discharge any fireworks while under the influence of alcohol or drugs;
- Fireworks can NOT be discharged within 150 feet of a structure;
- Fireworks can NOT be discharged on Public property without the consent of the property owner. (The Borough of South Greensburg does NOT give consent, or permit the discharging of fireworks on any of its public properties).
Please be courteous to your fellow neighbors and especially to those who have pets, as the discharge of fireworks can be traumatic to pets, which has unfortunately led to dogs being displaced from their homes by going astray.
As a result of airborne debris, Fireworks can also cause property damage to surrounding homes and vehicles and potentially ignite a fire.
Any person(s) who have violated the fireworks law or creates a potentially hazardous situation, will be charged accordingly.
Please stay safe and enjoy the holiday responsibly!
South Greensburg municipal offices will be closed on Friday, July 3 in observation of Independence Day. There will be no garbage collection on this day as well. We wish everyone a safe and happy holiday!

Greater Greensburg Athletics has made the difficult decision to cancel the spring baseball, softball and soccer seasons for 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
While it has been evident that we would have to wait until at least the Green Phase of Reopening Pennsylvania until we would have to wait until we could even begin to start planning our seasons, new guidelines have indicated that even into the Green Phase, social distancing and limiting the number of people participating in and viewing practices and games will still be necessary. Due to these restrictions, we feel it would be best to cancel at this time, to ensure the health and safety of our players, coaches, and families. We hope to offer fall baseball and soccer, should it be feasible.
We will be refunding all registration fees in FULL for all three sports. For those who have paid with cash or check, please be on th lookout for your refund check in the mail shortly. For those who have paid online, your refund will be processed through our payment system. For those who have paid via credit card, please call the City of Greensburg Rec. Dept. office at (724) 834-4880 between 10AM and 2PM for us to process your refund over-the -phone with the provided credit card number.
