Comment from Citizens:   Please state your name, you have maximum 3 minutes to speak.

2- Borough residents present.  No comments.


E Waste recycling event info: S. Masteller has been gathering info from 2 different companies and their fees are very far apart so more information is needed. We had done one in the past with Durham Township and they are interested again too. Sherry will forward more information when it is received. Rodney asked if we have the poundage information from the December 2018 event, Sherry will also look into that.

GovPay quote/agreement info: T. Macaluso reported that Tom and Ed had questions that were answered.

Council has the contract info so the next step would be for Bill Dudeck-Borough Solicitor to look over it.

Council agreed that Bill should look it over and maybe have it for the Council meeting next week.  There are no fees for the Borough and no equipment fees either.

BP Cards Credit: T. Macaluso reported that we finally received the credit and we have started to use WEX Inc. the new company’s cards.

BC Open Space funds $55,883.75 update: The Bucks County Planning Commission (BCPC) has completed their part of the approval and now it gets sent back to John Ives for the completion and the payment to the Borough.

Borough Heating Oil update: S. Masteller reported that April 13, she will contact the Donna- oil sales rep and get the Commercial price plus cost and the fixed rate so Council can vote on that during Borough Council April 14, 2021.

Utility Truck body info: R. Scott talked to Troy at Riegelsville Auto when he say the Utility truck out and Troy asked him if he knew what bad shape the bench seat was in. Troy is going to see if he can find a good used one and let us know the cost.
