UPDATE: Doylestown Borough Power Outage

The number of customers in Doylestown Borough without power was down to fewer than 200 by Sunday afternoon, borough officials said.

Latest message from Doylestown Borough regarding the power outage:

"As a long and difficult week comes to a close, less than 200 of our neighbors remain without power. PECO crews are out in force today to address these remaining areas. A large PECO crew has restored power to East Ashland Street in the vicinity of Church Street and is removing a large tree from power lines on Church Street at Burpee Park. Another large crew is at work on South West Street near Magill Lane. Still another is nearby on Worthington Street. Smaller crews are at work on Green Street, Clemens Road and at scattered locations throughout the Borough.

At this time only Worthington St, Church St (at Burpee Park), South West St (near Magill), and Creek Drive remain closed. Asplundh crews have removed downed trees from Creek Drive but downed wires are still awaiting PECO crews.

Tree branches will continue to  be accepted for an indefinite period at the drop off point just outside the gate of our Public Works facility located at the end of Harvey Avenue. Leaf Collection will pick up again Monday with crews set to complete Area 3 before moving into Area 4 soon thereafter.

If you are still without power and have not touched base, please email jdavis@doylestownborough.net to let us know."
