North Main Street (PA 72) Stormwater Improvements – The Borough was awarded a $200,000 Community Development Block Grant to install storm sewers from Danner Alley to Gramby Street. This project will help reduce the amount of stormwater on Main Street and the resulting splash onto adjacent sidewalks and buildings.
This project is currently wrapping up, and is anticipated to be completed by June 27th. The detour will only be in place between the hours of 9am and 3pm on weekdays.

The purpose of the 2017 street projects was primarily that of preventive maintenance in order to extend the life of the affected streets and to allow the Borough to utilize our limited funds in a more efficient manner. Similar to what many people do with residential driveways and parking lots, the seal coat helps to prevent water from seeping into and below the surface. This water, along with the freeze/thaw cycles, are the primary cause of pot holes and more significant street damage, which results in the need for more extensive (and expensive) repairs.
Wolf Street Parking Lot – New lighting has been installed, enhancing night-time visibility and safety, and the surface has been re-sealed. The Cardboard Dumpsters have been permanently relocated to the parking lot at Logan Park off of Ferdinand Street.
