CURWENSVILLE — Highlights from Monday’s meeting of Curwensville Borough Council include:
1 Council tabled a decision to replace lights at several locations in the borough with LED lights. The lights to be replaced include one at the salt shed; two outdoor lights at the borough building; and lights in the conference room and two side porches at the municipal building. The total cost for the project is $5,032.
Councilman Jim Hoover, who conducted the meeting in the absence of President Tommy Wingard, said he thought the matter should be discussed at council’s committee meetings on Nov. 27.
2 Council approved the purchase of a commercial grade snow blower from Shugarts Lawn and Garden Power Equipment of Clearfield at a cost of $1,499. Hoover said the borough’s street crew checked with two Curwensville businesses that sell snow removal equipment but neither had a commercial grade model.
3 Council heard a report from Animal Enforcement Officer Tom Shaffer. Shaffer reported in October he responded to 31 calls in the borough. He issued four written warnings and six verbal warnings.
4 Council heard a report from incoming Mayor John Adams. Adams said he had spoken with several people who told him the Nov. 8 primary had one of the largest turnouts of voters in a non-presidential election.
“I would like to congratulate the residents for turning out. I would also like to thank (Mayor) Tom Carfley for his four years of service.”
