Spring cold patching Borough Roads update: Sherry reported additional Cold patch was needed now they will continue.
Durham Road Signage issue: Borough office received an email with a concern from Borough Resident about the visibility of the speed bump sign. The “Wrong Way sign” facing south is hiding (from a distance) some of the “Speed Bump” sign. Council discussed this, Rodney put a picture on Zoom/camera to see too. Council didn’t see that it was blocking the speed bump sign plus there is one on the other side of the street too.
Council suggested to have the lines painted, Sherry thinks they are already on the schedule to be done.
Bamboo discussion: Council discussed the bamboo at 719 Easton Road and the Bamboo Ordinance.
During the weeding of the Borough property next to 719 Easton Road there was bamboo growing on the Borough property even with the barrier. The new owners did receive the Ordinance. Council suggested to Sherry to send a letter and another copy of the Ordinance to explain what needs to happen to fix this problem.
Salt Consortium: The Borough joins with the BC Consortium to participate with the yearly salt bid process. Council would like to continue. Sherry will email the 2021- 2022 Consortium Rock Salt Joint Bid request form to the administrator. The Borough’s estimated tonnage for the 2021-2022 season is 150.
