In other business, council accepted the resignation of Planning Commission member, James McArthur, who has moved from the area.
Borough council members also discussed deteriorating road conditions on Lake Avenue. Members of council, along with the street department, plan to discuss the situation with PennDOT to see how to best address the issues with ditching and the road surface.
The borough is also looking to better organize the wood chip/compost area. Residents bringing wood chips to the site are being asked to not place new, fresh chips on top of the pile of seasoned, ready-to-use chips. Signs will be posted to better direct residents.
