The Borough Council of the Borough of Highspire has launched a community engagement process to provide the public with an opportunity to voice their priorities for expenditure of the $248,380.04 ARPA grant funds to be received from the US Treasury.

ARPA refers to the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, also called the COVID-19 Stimulus Package, a $1.9 trillion economic stimulus bill that was passed by Congress and signed into law by President Joseph R. Biden on March 11, 2021.

These funds are to be received in two separate allotments; $124,190.02 on May/June 2021 and $124,190.02 on May/June 2022.

At the January 18th meeting, the Highspire Borough Council voted unanimously to indicate the following priorities, in rank order, for use of Highspire Borough’s initial allotment of ARPA funds: invest in new security cameras for the Highspire Municipal Building; digitalization of essential municipal documents; repairs to the Poplar Street culvert at Burd Run. We are seeking input as to how the remaining funds should be allocated.

The Highspire Borough Council will hold a public comment period on Tuesday, February 8, for residents of Highspire Borough to provide input and feedback on how the borough’s ARPA funds should be allocated.

Residents have several ways to provide their feedback. There is a survey form below which can be completed and either mailed or emailed to the Borough. Surveys and comments may be emailed with additional comments and letters to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Voicemail messages with comments may be left by calling 717-939-3303 x1101. To avoid duplicate responses, respondents’ full names and addresses must be provided for submissions to be considered.
