The Clarion Borough Stormwater Authority (CBSA) was established by Clarion Borough Ordinance No. 2016-820 on June 7, 2016. The authority board consists of five members, each of whom is a taxpayer in, maintains a business in, and/or is a citizen of the borough. The original board members will serve staggered terms from one to five years. New members of the board, appointed by Council, will serve five year terms.

It is the objective of the authority to fulfill this mission in a way that is fair to all residents and taxpayers of the borough.

*** PARKING NOTICE ***
The Clarion Borough Snow Removal Ordinance starts December 1, 2018 and will be enforced to April 1, 2019.
The Ordinance prohibits parking on both sides of North and South running streets from 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
The Ordinance prohibits parking on both sides of East and West running streets, between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday.
The Ordinance prohibits parking on both sides of Main Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenue.
The Ordinance prohibits parking in the Liberty Street, Wood Street and Ross Memorial Municipal Parking Lots between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. on Mondays and Fridays.
If your vehicle is parked in violation of the Ordinance, you will be fined $50.00. All Borough streets are affected and disabled vehicles are NOT excluded.
The Clarion Borough Police Department wishes to point out that many people are fined each year because of misconceptions. The following problems most commonly result in tickets being issued:
- This is not a weather-related ordinance. There is no requirement for snowfall. The Ordinance is a seasonal parking Ordinance.
- Many people forget that “tomorrow” begins at 12:00 midnight. It is a common mistake to go to bed on Monday night, forgetting that it becomes Tuesday at one minute after midnight. If your car is parked on an East and West running street, you will find a $50.00 ticket on your windshield.
- Vehicles must be moved COMPLETELY off of the highway, this includes the Borough’s right-of-way.
We would like you to start your day right. Do not make the mistakes we have pointed out to you. Please note the signs in place throughout the Borough and avoid an unnecessary fine. Have a nice winter season and drive safely.
TOBY BOAT LAUNCH
The Borough hosts a public boat launch and dock in the area of 5th Avenue and Fireman’s Road. No usage fees are charged. The current dock was donated to Clarion Borough by the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission and is maintained by the Borough’s Public Works Department.
