Castle Shannon and SwiftReach Networks encourage all businesses and residents to register their information to receive Emergency Notifications.
Castle Shannon Borough employs an ordinance under Chapter 13 Part 2 Sub Section 201 which states in part that “it shall be unlawful for any person to . . . solicit contributions for funds from the general public . . . without first applying for and obtaining a solicitor’s permit.”
In 2006 there was case law in PA which struck down ordinances in local Municipalities which restricted “canvassing for political, religious or other purposes” outside soliciting goods or services.
Some areas in Castle Shannon require a parking permit to park on the street. Complete the attached application and return to Castle Shannon Police Department, 3310 McRoberts Road. If you are renting, a signed copy of the lease and a photo ID are required along with the application. If a lease is not available proof of the car's registration to the Castle Shannon address is required. If you have any questions please call 412-885-9300, ext 111.
Emergency contact information is requested by the police department in the event an emergency would occur at your business. This information is confidential and is the only way the police are able to make notifications during an emergency. If you change emergency contacts for your business please notify the police department so we can better serve you.
There is a $20.00 non-refundable fee for a permit per person for background checks. No outside background checks are accepted.
