Borough Receives Website Award
Ebensburg Borough’s website, www.ebensburgpa.com, has received second place honors in the Pennsylvania State Association of Borough's Municipal Website contest! "Much effort goes into creating and maintaining a quality website,” said Mayer Charles Moyer. “A nice reward for those efforts, is recognition from a statewide agency." Second place recognition was awarded for preparation of an outstanding website in 2005, for the population category 2,501-5,000. Recently, the Borough added a listing of the available properties in town for sale or lease. Council meeting minutes, news releases, calendar of events, online applications, and more can also be found on the website.
