Mike Feinman doesn’t drink, but he’s still got beer in his blood. Feinman is better known to his customers and social media followers as the cartoon-come-to-life Sir Mix-A-Six (SMAS). He’s the owner of Trenton Road Takeout, a Falls Township bottle shop that stocks more than 1,000 varieties of craft beer, traditional brews and wine.
With an eye on protecting the public’s safety, the Falls Township Supervisors adopted an ordinance to set guidelines for the use of fireworks. Under the local law, which mirrors the state law enacted in 2017, Falls Township residents interested in setting off fireworks to mark Independence Day may be permitted to do so, provided that guidelines are met.
Thanks to generous contributions from two recent township events, the Falls Township Youth Police Academy received a total of $6,600 to support its program. Extreme Fitness Personal Training owners Marty McLoughlin and his wife, Linda Stout, collected a total of $5,600 in donations from the recent Fallsington 5K and one-mile walk.
Over the last few months, it has been impossible to ignore the fact that the trash and recycling collections by Waste Management in Falls Township have been very inconsistent. There have been times when trash and recycling are picked up a day late, or not picked up at all. This issue has affected every part of the Township, and the Township government has had numerous meetings and discussions with staff and executives from Waste Management to address the problems.
In an effort to maintain quality roads, the Falls Township Supervisors plan to undertake its annual road improvement program this summer. The Supervisors unanimously voted to authorize the advertisement of its 2018 road program.
Falls Township Police Chief William Wilcox and his officers are seeing far too many images of kids pointing BB guns or pellet guns that look eerily like the real thing. Wilcox said he is seeing more instances of kids sharing images of themselves on Snapchat and other social media platforms holding what amounts to be toy guns. For many, it’s hard to tell the difference between the lookalike toy guns and actual weapons, he said.
The 2018 Bucks County Household Hazardous Waste Collection Events have been scheduled. For a listing of locations, dates & times, please click the link below.
The Falls Township Board of Supervisors joined five other Bucks County municipalities and a growing number of municipal governments statewide in supporting the creation of a citizen’s commission to oversee legislative and congressional redistricting.
Falls Township would like to introduce a new directory that local businesses can apply for and be added. This will make searching for companies in our Township that much easier. Hopefully this will be a great resource for residents and businesses alike, and keep the spending local!
Residents are encouraged to report a concern (pothole, streetlights in need of repair, abandoned vehicles, etc...) using our online "Report A Concern" form.
