Weissport is considering making a major purchase of equipment to mow the grass on the flood levee.
Mayor Jonathan Troutman said council should consider purchasing atractor with a16-foot boom and a 4-foot flail.
Troutman said apiece of equipment such as that could cost about $20,000.
"No question, maintaining the levee is hard work," said Sue Pywar, council vice president. Her husband is a part-time borough worker.
"Everyone has full-time jobs," Pywar said . "No one wants to do the work because it is so hard."
