The Aston Police Department is always looking out for their residents, and with the recent spike in car theft, they would like to remind you to be careful.

The heat of summer is here which means Aston pools are being used more now than any other time of the year. The Aston Code Department wants to make sure everyone is using their pools as safely and responsibly as possible. When the pool is not in use, you should make sure that all surrounding gates are closed. Another important tip is to make sure all of your ladders are in the locked position when nobody is using the pool. Perhaps the most essential detail to pay attention to is the quality of the water that is in the pool. [...]

The Aston Township Emergency Management Coordinator in conjunction with the Aston Township Board of Commissioners, Township Engineer, Chief of Police and Fire Chiefs and the United States Postal Service are continuing with our STANDARDIZED STREET NUMBERING PROGRAM designed to improve emergency response.

Who: buildings on specifically chosen Aston Township streets with old and out-dated street numbering patterns (some with no pattern at all) inconsistent with standard numbering guidelines. What: re-numbering of all [...]
Environmental awareness and sustainability have become a priority in Aston, and the recycling effort is leading the way. As you can see in the chart above, community members have taken our weekly recycling much more seriously in 2013 so far and it is helping the town of Aston quite a bit. Recycling does help to bring in additional revenue but that is not the most important aspect of our “green” endeavor. Making the community a more sustainable and environment-friendly place is so beneficial to the township as a whole, but especially the Aston youth, who will go on to follow [...]
The Aston Community Center is making a huge upgrade in its gymnasium, switching the older, harder grey floors with brand new wooden ones. The new wood floor at the community center is a joint effort by the township and Aston Athletic Association. These brand new, maple floors are going to go a long way in helping make the gym look a lot nicer, as well as making the experience of the Aston A.A. participants much more enjoyable and less injury-prone. The cost was shared by the AAA and was a gift to the township. No tax dollars were used in [...]
With summertime fast approaching, grass, weeds, and overgrowth have the potential to become a problem in the community. According to an ordinance put into place last summer, weeds and grass that grow into the sidewalks, curbs, and streets of Aston is not allowed. This ordinance was put in place for the town’s appearance as well as to keep the health risks that high grass carries, such as mosquitoes and the West Nile Virus. As Paula Turnbach, Code Enforcement Officer, states, “When the overgrowth is taken care of it goes a long way in making the streets, and the community as [...]
