A Special Message from the Borough

Dear Neighbors in East Lansdowne,

On March 13th, Mayor John Dukes signed a Declaration of Emergency.  The Declaration of Emergency allows the Borough to spend money on necessary supplies and allows the Mayor and Borough Council to meet on special notice without violating the Sunshine Act.

In recognition of the quickly changing circumstances caused by the Coronavirus, ALL nonessential Borough facilities will be cancelled or postponed, until further notice.

Essential personnel will still be working in the Borough. Sanitation will continue to operate as normal. East Lansdowne Police and the Fire Company will continue to preserve the safety of the community.

East Lansdowne Borough Council will still meet on Monday, April 13th at 7:00 PM for an abbreviated meeting to conduct essential and necessary business.

Please be assured that we take these actions in conjunction with the County and State government and hope for the well-being of our neighbors. The Mayor and Council Members of East Lansdowne Borough take the health and wellness of our team members, residents, and community members very seriously. As the situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) changes, we are closely looking over and following the steps issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as the County and State government.

If you have Borough questions, you may call the office and leave a message.




Mayor John Dukes, East Lansdowne


Lindsay Crosby, President of Borough Council


William Callahan, Borough Manager
