Mayor Fajt’s Statement

As a matter of public safety in conjunction with the Governor’s orders on March 19th, 2020, I encourage the residents and businesses of South Greensburg to join in the fight against COVID-19.  In doing so, I would ask that you follow the Governors orders with regards to non-life sustaining business and travel.

We are all in this fight together and need everyone’s cooperation to stop the spread of COVID-19.  These are trying times for America, Pennsylvania, Westmoreland County and the Borough of South Greensburg.

Police and fire will continue to be available for emergency related calls and activities.  Non-emergency situations will be handled by telephone, if possible.  The Borough Office will operate on a limited basis and all borough properties and recreational facilities will continue to be closed to the public.  I encourage residents to handle business by phone at (724) 837-8858 or email at info@southgreensburg.org
