Old Bethlehem Pike Closed

Old Bethlehem Pike between Rich Hill Road and Greentop Road will be closed on August 14th. The road will be closed for approximately 5 days so that the pipe can be replaced.

Full Road Closure Old Bethlehem Pike

After extensive studies, the intersection of Three Mile Run Road and Park Avenue (Old Bethlehem Pike) did not meet PennDOT requirements for a traffic signal.  Instead, a roundabout is recommended as an effective way to slow down traffic and improve safety. 

Public water service by Perkasie Regional Authority as part of a Pennvest grant award will begin at the intersection around June 15 immediately followed by roundabout construction.  Full road closure is to be in place until mid-September 2023, weather permitting. 

Access to all private driveways and businesses will be maintained.

Illegal Roadside Dumping

It is unlawful to “throw, deposit, place, or dump…upon any street or highway or upon any public or privately owned land without the owner’s consent…”

Littering or dumping trash, furniture, electronics, animal carcasses, grass or brush clippings, construction materials, etc. along roadsides is prohibited. Violations are misdemeanors and punishable by fines of up to $1,000.00 or 90 days in jail, or both. 

Residents are asked to be observant of suspicious vehicles and activity. If you witness roadside dumping, note the vehicle description, license plate number and dumping location and call the Pennridge Regional Police Non-Emergency line: 215-257-5104 immediately.

Driveway Pipe Maintenance

While West Rockhill Township maintains the ditches along Township roads, residents are responsible for installation and routine maintenance of their own driveway pipes (Resolution No. 98-07).  The Township’s rural roads are vulnerable to flooding and icing when driveway pipes are clogged, crushed, or in need of maintenance, creating hazardous conditions. Chronically flooded or frozen roadways are also subject to rapid deterioration, with taxpayer dollars spent on repairs or costly repaving.   Please inspect your driveway pipe seasonally and clear out debris that may be obstructing the flow of storm water through the ditches.  If you see any driveway pipe or stormwater issues during a storm event, please take a photo and inform the Township of the location with the photo. We will investigate the problem.

Part Time Public Works Position 

West Rockhill Township is currently looking for a Part Time Public Works employee. The position requires 20 hours per week and availability during emergencies and snow events. For an application please email or stop in the Township offices between 8 am and 4 pm.  CDL Class B preferred.  

Philly Workers Who Stayed Home May Be Due a Wage Tax Refund

Has your home turned into an office during the last year? With the pandemic forcing many people to work from home, thousands in our area are no longer commuting to work. For those who in the past commuted to Philadelphia, there is yet another benefit to working from home beyond saving time, gas, and tolls: a tax refund.

Anyone who works in Philadelphia and lives elsewhere is subject to pay the non-resident Philadelphia Wage Tax, which stands at a hefty 3.5019% of gross wages. Nearly all municipalities in the Philadelphia area levy an Earned Income Tax (EIT), with most topping out at 1%. Residents living in the suburbs are subject to this lower rate EIT where they live- unless they work in Philadelphia. However, with many required to work from their homes during the last year, they may no longer be subject to the Philadelphia Wage Tax while telecommuting.

Is it worth the effort to pursue a refund? The simple answer is yes! Someone working from home in the suburbs during the pandemic making $60,000 per year would be subject to their home municipality’s EIT, which is typically 1%. In the span of one year, this would equal a savings of about $1,500! Plus, the 1% you contribute to your local EIT will be invested into public safety and infrastructure improvements into the community you and your family lives. 

How do you take advantage of this? For any amount of time a Philadelphia job was completed at a home outside of the city limits, they may request a Wage Tax refund from the City of Philadelphia.  When submitting a tax return to Keystone Collections, the tax officer for all EIT in Bucks County, use the Out-Of-State Tax Credit Worksheet on Line 12 of the tax return form if you need to receive a tax credit for the time you did not work in Philadelphia.

For anyone who continues working from their home outside of the City of Philadelphia, they should submit a Residency Certification Form to their employer and request that their local EIT be deducted from their wages instead of the City Wage tax. A political subdivision (PSD) code will be needed for the form, which can be found using this tool
