Street Committee ReportThe Market Street paving project is almost done. They have to seal, put in signs and a few small things to finish. Dave advises there are several spots the State will need to lower because the bottoms of vehicles hit and the cinder spreader will be damaged in the snow. Dave will contact the contractor. He is going to get some cold patch for the bigger potholes and when he gets back from vacation, he will try to get some hot patch to make them more permanent. There was a discussion about co-opping a blacktop roller with Greenwood or Tuscarora Township. Dave will need to speak with some of the other municipal employees. Sewer Committee Report NoneWater Committee Report Dave is speaking with Modern Pump about a spare pump for the well house.

Ben has an updated draft for the chlorine conversion project and wants Dave to review then he will submit to DEP. It is possible they will charge $750 if they consider this a major amendment to the original plan. HRG has no way of knowing if the charges will apply, this is Dep’s discretion. Mayor’s ReportAbsentSolicitor’s ReportNoneOld BusinessThe end of Locust Street has an accumulation of junk. Letters need to be sent and Secretary Knellinger needs addresses. Iron Mountain Road needs shale; we put 1B stone and graded the top. Greenwood Township needs to get their part done to prevent washing of stone into the drains during heavy rain. Council would like to see the road paved and not tar and chipped. Possibly road millings could be applied with some tar next year. There has been no response from the townships on the 1mill fire tax.
