Code Enforcement

Code Enforcement Committee Members – Mayor Quairoli, Tom Keefer, Dave Charest

Code Enforcement Officer – Scott Adams, PA State Constable

The purpose of code enforcement is to work with the residents and businesses of Jonestown to preserve and maintain the livability, values and integrity of our business and residential neighborhoods. Scott responds to complaints from the public to ensure that we promote a safe, healthy and attractive community.

Reporting Violations:
The Borough understands that some residents may feel uncomfortable providing their name and phone number when reporting a possible violation. We do not offer the name of the complaining party to those who are notified of violations.

Please understand that not all conditions that the Borough receives information about are in violation of any Borough code and therefore we may not be able to resolve every situation to the satisfaction of the reporting party. We do appreciate your efforts to help us keep Jonestown a healthy and attractive place to live.

The following link contains a Word Doc of our Complaint Form.  You may download to print, email, snail mail, or personally present this form at the Jonestown Borough Office.  Take note that any complaint form filed anonymously will not be acknowledged.

    1. Thank you for your question, however, you are located outside of Jonestown Borough so I’m not sure of what restrictions there might be. I believe you are located in East Hanover Township so you could contact your municipal building for more specifics. Thank you!

    1. Thank you, Bryan, for your inquiry and we’re sorry to hear that you are facing an unresolved problem. Jonestown Borough does have a noise ordinance and it does include issues pertaining to animals. If you are not in the Borough, then you would need to contact the Township building in which you are located (Swatara or Union). If you are in the Borough, we would require you to submit a formal complaint form so that we are able to address this issue directly with the resident. Your name is kept on file for our records only and is not reported to the individual in which the complaint has been addressed. This form can be found on our website under the Code Enforcement tab or you may stop by the Borough Office to complete it. Thank you!

  1. I live in the Twin Creeks Development and am potentially wanting to install a chain link fence for our dogs to have more room to roam. A neighbor one street up has a chain link in his back yard, but, I’ve been told they may not be allowed in our development. I’ve searched the internet to no avail, was wondering if they’re allowable in the development? Apologies if this isn’t the appropriate place to ask. Thank you for your time!
