Spotted Lanternfly

Spotted Lanternflies are laying egg masses now until December.

Each egg mass carries 30-50 eggs, covered in a mud-like substance which cracks over time and looks like mortar. These egg masses survive winter and hatch into SLF nymphs in the spring. These egg masses are the only stationary stage of the SLF, making them an easy target for removal. Egg masses can be found on trees, fences, outdoor furniture and cars.

If you find egg masses on your property, you can scrape them off using a plastic card or putty knife. Scrape them into a bag or container filled with rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer and keep them in this solution permanently. Egg masses that are scraped to the ground can still hatch, so it is important to follow all steps! Egg masses can also be smashed, but be sure to apply even and forceful pressure to the entire egg mass. A properly smashed egg will burst open. If you spot these, please destroy them before they hatch next spring. 


Haworth Historian

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Beth Potter as our Haworth Historian. A longtime resident of Haworth, Beth Potter took on the de facto role of Haworth Historian following in the footsteps of Mary Lou Boyd who had previously been the  steward of the Borough’s records and archives. Beth’s job with the Haworth Library, as well as her proficiency in genealogy and research, has given her access to resources and residents who have helped her uncover fascinating stories about Haworth's past.


Property Tax Relief

The Department of the Treasury is launching a new initiative, the ANCHOR Property Tax Relief Outreach Team, to conduct door-to-door outreach and application assistance to residents across the state. Canvassers will provide information and help complete applications for those who need assistance filing for ANCHOR. The Community Outreach Team will be going door-to-door daily throughout the state beginning September 26th, from the hours of 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Residents have reported that canvassers have visited Haworth so please know that this is legitimate.

If you have a moment, please answer the questions if someone knocks on your door from the ANCHOR Property Tax Relief Outreach Team. All answers are confidential and can help you access up to $1,750 in property tax relief.
