Winter Storm Warning
With the threat of a snow storm Sunday thru Monday, we ask that the residents remove all vehicles from the streets. By doing so, this allows DPW to remove the snow in an efficient manner, providing safer streets.
Borough Code 10.08.070 - Parking temporarily prohibited for snow removal and other emergencies.

Dear Stratford Resident,
The residents of Stratford have always been very proud of the rich history of our Borough. From the 19th Century homes that still dot the landscape of our historic District, to our Quaker Store.
Sadly, as we know, there comes a time when economic conditions, deterioration, or both, sweep some of our history from us, leaving only memories. [for more info]
