Borough App & Clean-Up Details
Today on Wellsboro Home Page, Borough Manager, Scot Boyce, introduces the new Borough of Wellsboro app. The app is already available for Android devices and will be downloadable from Apple App Store in the near future. The borough’s goal is that the app can aid in communication with the community about alerts and make other borough information readily available to the public. Alerts may include road closings, parking maps, and even water boil advisories – all at the touch of your fingertips. “There is no bill pay option as of now,” says Boyce. “But maybe further in the future.”
