From the Mayors Desk:

05/24/2019 : I would like to give a brief update to all residents. We are submitting the last of our paperwork for FEMA and PEMA. We also have the Army Corps of Engineers involved in a storm water and runoff study. The elected officials have been working hard at making a difference to this destruction we are facing each storm with intense rainfall and storms. I ask everyone to remain strong and continue to help one another and we will prevail.

Resolution approved to help mitigate flooding and we continue to work to improve our community. Short term solutions is preparing ahead of these storms and your local responders have been doing a great job with this so thank them.

Code Enforcement Officer: Part Time Officer hired and will be taking on the written complaints as they come in and folks be patient the complaints are over whelming.

Good Morning: With the heavy rains that have been affecting this community, and the communities surrounding ours in this County. I need all residents in our community to remain TREMONT STRONG! Our community will continue to monitor the storms, the National Weather Service still has a Flash Flooding in effect so if you have low line areas please monitor and take immediate cover. As most of you know the water comes up rapidly.

We have been and continue to monitor the water and sewage in this area. We did have some sewage concerns with the pumping station done yesterday and crews working to address this need. So if in doubt may need boil water advisories. Please use caution.
Out of our 800 households we have over 200 affected by this natural disaster. 190 of our homes have minor damage. About 20 homes have major damage which had water to there first floor from 18 inches to 6 feet of water.
As many of our residents know we have been dealt by mother nature with a nasty amount of rain over the past three floods. Any local storm is causing localized flooding for us. Ground is completely saturated. The water runoff is excess.
We have declared state of emergency. Curfew is from 9pm now until 7 am. Normally it is 11pm til 7 am. This will be in effect until further notice. Limited access into our community. I will continue as Mayor to strive for safety of our responders and residents and need to limited quests coming into our community.
We have our local business affected by the disaster. Local Mid Penn Bank, Family Dollar, Local Pizza Shop. Our Nursing Home has been slightly affected but still in full operation and we have been working closely with them. We will continue to reach out with Mid Penn Bank, Family Dollar, and Local Pizza Shop on there needs. Dayton Superior was affected again as well. Our smaller business like flower shop and need to reach out to them on there needs. We have been very overwhelmed and Armed Security and Emergency Powers granted to folks to provide Police assistance in our community.
I am again asking for our community to dig one more time deeper and come together and not get defeated. Continue to help one another, Let’s Continue to pray for Strength, Hope, Faith, and Love for one another.
Let’s continue to work thru the anger and frustration and emotions we all are facing and we will prevail!
One again reminder we are in recovery phase. Damaged homes, water in basements, we have crews to assist. Our local volunteers have been stretched to the limit. Do not lose faith or hope in them. The have already had over 40 answered calls to pumping details. They have been a great help in opening up drains that were blocked. Have provided assist with dive teams on 3 swift water rescues and gathering 15 households to safety. We have had no fatal deaths. No injuries. Safety is our concern. Mutual Aid units have been brought in to aid our community so let them assist you.
Again we have dumpsters being placed near spring street in family dollar lot. W Laurel Street and Union Street so give us time to get them established. We have a local set of volunteers to get appliances get them to the curb.
American Red Cross, Savage Army have been actively involved in emergency shelter food and also we have many active missionary groups coming to assist over the next few days. I plead to you to allow these good people to come to our rescue. Chaplain and Counseling will also be available.
I spoke with Governor Wolfe yesterday and advised me to contact his chief of staff for unmet needs, I have had many conversations with Schuylkill County EMA, I met with Representative Tobash, I have pleaded for emergency money. I reached out to County Commissioner George Halcovage. I am begging and will continue to strive for assistance. We have had some churches stepping up to aid us until we see assistance. We have been working on emergency loan and our local bank had to close with this disaster so we are indeed, by far reached a low but will not fail. We will continue to strive for help and I as our Mayor need you guys behind our local officials and know we will not stand alone.
Stay Well, Stay Safe
Mayor Ney
