FREE Business Directory Listing for Borough Businesses

Our Webmaster, Tom Ford, is working on a new feature for our Borough Website — a Borough Business Directory. The Directory will (at least initially) be limited to legally operating businesses with a physical location within the Borough of Mount Pocono.  Your business needs to have a ‘bricks & mortar’ location (online only businesses are not eligible) AND it must actually be located within the Borough limits (having a Mount Pocono zip code is not enough).  Eventually we may expand eligibility, but we want to get the local directory up and running. We will be collecting listing information through November, then start work on the new page.  We are tentatively looking to launch it in January 2019, but please be patient, this is an all-volunteer effort! To get your qualified business listed, fill out the Application and email to to Tom at tom@mountpocono-pa.gov.  Any questions can be directed to Tom.
