Dear Point Marion Utility Customers:

This notice is to inform you that the Borough is raising its base water and sewage rates. The new rates become effective with your current bill, which was mailed out yesterday (March 27th).

The new base rate for water is $50.00, and the new base rate for sewage is $39.00. The usage and garbage rate will remain the same.

The base rate increases will be used to establish a Capitol Improvement Fund for Borough utilities. The fund will be used for major equipment purchases and grant fund matches. The establishment of the fund is in response to the Borough's recently completed 2023 Asset Management Plan. 

This plan and other information relating to Borough operations will be presented to the public at a Town Hall Meeting that will take place on Thursday, April 4, 2024 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at the Point Marion Fire Hall.  All are invited - we encourage you to attend.

From the Beginning

On March 15, 1842 John Sadler announced a public sale of lots. The purchaser of the first lot has the honor of naming the town. Lot No. 1, located on the point, was purchased for $100 by Seth Stafford of Monongalia County, Virginia. He named the town Point Marion. It is interesting that this town was named for a Southern Revolutionary War Hero (General Francis Marion aka. The Swamp Fox), who never stepped foot in this area.

Point Marion Today

Point Marion is a small town in southwestern Pennsylvania which has a lot to offer to those who visit, from paddling on the Mon or Cheat, to enjoying our public park, eating at our local restaurants, and visiting our well-known local businesses. History enthusiasts will enjoy our historic structures, like the 100-year-old Point Marion Baptist Church, and nearby Friendship Hill National Historic Site, which was once home to Albert Gallatin, an early American Politician. The Sheep Skin Trail passes through Point Marion as well.


Special thank you to Mr. David Callahan for sharing this excerpt from the historical book Point Marion from the Beginning. You can find this book at our local Point Marion Library. The book was compiled by a group of eight citizens (Katherine Wyda, Diane Watson, Rowena Bowers, Joan Callahan, Mary Jo Uphold, Karen Rishel, Margaret Maurer, and Donna Cocalis) from Point Marion who felt that the history of our area should be preserved for the future generations.  Also a special thank you to our 2021 Point Marion Council members and Mayor for all the hard work and dedication with getting the website up and running for the residents of Point Marion.
