  • Traffic Counts in East Fallowfield

    In the next few weeks, the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) will be performing traffic counts in our municipality.

    DVRPC routinely collects travel volume information in the nine counties comprising the Philadelphia metropolitan area. Counts are typically collected at the request of your state DOT to fulfill Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) program requirements, at the request of the county planning/engineering office, or in support of planning staff evaluating transportation system performance or improvements. This involves DVRPC staff laying a rubber tube across roadway facilities for approximately 48 hours (to gather daily traffic volumes) or manually recording traffic from a vehicle parked near an intersection (to gather turning movement information). These efforts will not interfere with normal traffic operations on these facilities.

    We invite you to visit the traffic counting section of our website (www.dvrpc.org ), where all of our traffic count information is available to the public. Once on our website, simply choose Products and Services | Traffic Counts from the Resources menu. You will be offered a choice of viewing a map of all of our traffic count locations or searching counts by county, municipality or road name.

  • Burglary Arrest

    In a press release dated November 10, 2008, Chief Mango wrote:

    East Fallowfield- Charges were filed today against two juveniles for the burglaries of a house located in the 200 block of Wilmington Road, East Fallowfield. An officer conducting an investigation of a credit card theft learned that two township juveniles, a 12 year old male and a 15 year old male entered the residence through an unlocked rear door on two occasions: October 14, 2008 and October 28, 2008, taking video games, music players, cellular telephones and other property with an estimated value of $2,500. The officer contacted the homeowner who reported that he noticed some items missing but was unaware that he was the victim of a crime. Some of the property was recovered and returned to the victim. Both juveniles were charged with burglary, theft and receiving stolen property and released to their parents pending action by juvenile court authorities.

  • Update on New Local Services Tax

    This is to update you on the status of pending legislation affecting the EMS tax. Among other things, the legislation requires municipalities to adopt an income level exemption for the tax and requires employers to withhold the tax on a pro rata basis throughout the tax year. The bill is on the Governor’s desk and he has indicated that he will sign the bill into law. The Township will have to amend its EMS tax ordinance once the bill becomes law. The changes do not take effect until January 1, 2008. A brief summary of the major points of the bill is below:

    1.     The tax will no longer be referred to as the Emergency Services Tax. The tax will be called the Local Services Tax (the “LST”) .  

    2.    The legislation expands the permitted uses of the proceeds derived from the LST. The permitted uses include: (a) emergency services which shall include emergency medical services, police services, and/or fire services; (b) road construction and/or maintenance; (c) property tax reduction; and (d) property tax relief through the implementation of a farmstead and homestead exclusion. 

    3.     The Township must use at least 25% of the funds derived from the LST for emergency services.  

    4.     If the LST is greater than $10, the Township must exempt from the tax all persons whose total earned income and net profits from all sources within the township is less than $12,000 for the calendar year in which the tax is imposed. If the LST is $10 or less, the Township has the option to adopt the income level exemption. Income level exemption is optional. The legislation includes the procedure for a taxpayer who wants to claim the exemption.

    5.     The Township must exempt from the tax: (a) any person who served in any war or armed conflict in which the United States was engaged and is honorably discharged or released under honorable circumstances from active service, if, as a result of the military service the person is blind, paraplegic or a double or quadruple amputee or has a service connected disability which is a 100% disability; and (b) any person who serves as a member of a reserve component of the armed forces and is called to active duty at any time during the taxable year.  

    6.     The legislation requires employers to withhold the tax on a pro rata basis over the entire calendar year.  

    7.    The Township must adopt regulations governing the processing of refunds for overpaid LTS. The Township does not have to pay interest on the refunded LTS if the refund is made within 75 days of a refund request or 75 days after the last day the employer is required to remit the tax to the Township.  


    This is a highlight of the substantive areas that must be addressed in each Township’s ordinance. There are some additional provisions that will have to be included from a legal standpoint. As indicated before, the Governor is expected to sign the bill into law. We will keep you updated on the status and let you know when (and if) the Governor signs the bill into law.

    Q. What is a Protection Order?

    A. Protection Orders are similar but not identical to what had been called Restraining Orders or Peace Bonds. A Protection Order is a civil order issued by a judge that directs a person (The Defendant) to have no contact with you ("The Petitioner"). The Defendant cannot contact you in person, by telephone or computer, or through another party. Also, the Defendant will not be allowed to possess a firearm while the Protection Order is in effect.

    Q. Who can apply for a Protection Order?

    A. A person who is or has been a victim of domestic or family violence may file a petition for an order for protection against a family or household member who commits an act of domestic or family violence. If you are a victim or parent or legal guardian of a victim of domestic or family violence committed by a family or household member you may file a petition for protection and a request for a hearing. A judge or magistrate will decide if you have legal grounds for the granting of a Protection Order.

    Q. What acts are considered to be "domestic or family violence"?

    A. Only the following acts qualify as domestic or family violence:

    Attempting to cause, threatening to cause, or causing physical harm to another or family or household member without legal justification; Placing a family or household member in fear of physical harm without legal justification; Causing a family or household member to involuntarily engage in sexual activity by force, threat of force, or duress; Stalking; or Sexual offense.

    Q. Who is considered to be a family or household member?

    A. In order to qualify to tile a petition for a Protection Order you must be able to describe your relationship with the Defendant (person to be restrained) as your family or household member:

    • The Defendant is, or used to be, my spouse;
    • The Defendant and I are dating, or have dated, each other;
    • The Defendant and I are, or have been, engaged in a sexual relationship;
    • The Defendant and I have a child in common;
    • The Defendant and I are related by blood or adoption;
    • The Defendant and I are related by marriage;
    • The Defendant is, or used to be: My guardian; My ward; My custodian; My foster parent; or I am a minor child of a person in one of the types of relationships listed above.
    • The Defendant has committed stalking against me.
    • The Defendant has committed a sex offense against me.

    If your relationship with the Defendant is not described above, the Court will not grant your petition for a Protection Order.

    Q. Can Protection Orders for victims of stalking and sexual offenses only be obtained against family or household members?

    A. No. Protection Orders can be obtained for victims of stalking and sexual offenses against non-family or non-household members if the person has committed the act of stalking or a sexual offense against the Petitioner for the Protection Order.

    Q. Can I apply for a Protection Order against my neighbor with whom I cannot get along?

    A. No. If you have a legal problem with a neighbor you should talk with a lawyer to find out about your options. If the dispute includes harassment or abuse you can also file a report with the police. If criminal charges are filed against the person who is harassing or abusing you, you may be able to obtain a No Contact Order as part of the criminal case. If you are not certain whether the problem with your neighbor amounts ta crime, you can contact the police department and speak to the officer on duty.

    Q. What information will I need in order to till out the Petition?

    A. You must have the following information about the Defendant to request a Protection Order:

    • Correct full name;
    • Correct and current address; and
    • Correct date of birth or Social Security Number.

    Additional information that will be helpful to have about the Defendant:

    • Identifying characteristics of the Defendant, such as:
      • Race
      • Hair color
      • Height
      • Weight
      • Scars
      • Tattoos
    • Employer's name and address
    • Telephone number(s)
    • Addresses frequented by the Defendant

    Q. How long is a Protection Order valid?

    A. Protection Orders are valid for up to two(2) years from the date of issuance.

    Q. Is my Protection Order enforceable outside of the state in which it was originated?

    A. Protection Orders are enforceable in all fifty states. You should keep a copy of your Protection Order with you at all times.

    Q. What if I have a Protection Order that was issued in another county or state?

    A. The Protection Order will still be in effect, but you should keep a copy of your Protection Order with you at all times and register the Protection Order with the local police so that the local law enforcement agencies will have a copy on file.
