Secretary Karen Knellinger and Mayor Scott Arbegast and Operator Sam Beers. Vice President Hengst called the meeting to order at 7:00 pm. Public and Private Concerns A resident attended and advised of an ongoing situation concerning parking on South Market Street. The parking is public and no spots can be considered reserved. The State Police were called to the scene of the altercation. Council suggested continuing to have the police involved.   A letter was received from a resident concerning lawn damage due to plowing.

The minutes from the last regular meeting were previously emailed and reviewed.  Councilmember Fegley made a motion to approve the minutes as presented. Councilmember Showers seconded the motion. Approval was unanimous. The bills/receipts/expenditures were reviewed and discussed. Councilmember Fegley made a motion to approve the bills and expenditures. Councilmember Ritzman seconded the motion. Approval was unanimous.  Street Committee Report Sam plowed alone in the last snowfall since Dave was out sick. Everything went well without any issues. The salt supply should be sufficient until next winter. A detour will be through town for two weeks while Penn Dot closes Route 22/322. Flaggers will be in the square for day light hours. Sewer Committee Report Sam advises Kline’s is still hauling out the sludge since Harrisburg also has filamentous. A land apply permit was discussed again. A suitable farmer would need to provide their own hauler and spreader. Sludge can only be applied one time a year and the rest would need to be stored. Water Committee Report Councilmembers Ritzman, Fegley and Showers met to discuss a backflow prevention plan. They will continue to work on a feasible timeline for the lowest impact to residents and businesses.   Finance Committee Report The Liquid Fuels Allocation for 2019 will be $29,318.22 Solid Waste Committee Report None Engineers Report Cory advises the Chapter 94 report was submitted. The Chapter 110 report is finished and due next month. An estimate for the sliplining on North Market Street was received for $19,500. Cory thinks if they view the CD’s the cost may be reduced. He will follow up and get other quotes. Mayors Report The Mayor has a trail cam on his personal property at James Street and residents are not stopping at the stop sign. He has observed speeding on North Market Street before the ramp to 22/322. He questioned if anyone knew about the turf field proposal from Greenwood School District as the meeting is currently being held. He advised we do not have any accommodations for out of town events. During the last power outage, he questioned where any local warming stations were located. The Borough Office does not have accommodations and although a generator and trailer have been a project, the fire Station would need to be wired which would take extensive funds. Solicitors Report None Old Business Vice President Hengst has not reached his contact at Penn Dot concerning the review of brake retarder signs on Market and Sunbury Streets. Councilmember Ritzman is still working on repair of the cans for the square. New Business None Zoning Permit None A motion was made by Councilmember Fegley to adjourn. Councilmember Ritzman seconded the motion. Meeting was adjourned. The next meeting will be held Monday, April 4th at 7pm.
