Canal Association seeks to build museum, office
At Walnutport Council's workshop meeting Thursday night Everett Kaul, of the Walnutport Canal Association (W.C.A.), asked Council to consider granting W.C.A. an easement so that W.C.A. can build a new two-story building on the canal next to the locktender's house.
According to Kaul, the lower floor would serve as a museum, and the upper level would serve as an office and a place to store archives.
In other business, Jerry Underkoffler, of Walnutport, sent a letter to Council asking permission to place a concrete bollard at the corner of his property on Washington Street in order to deter trucks from parking in his driveway.
Council has been discussing ways to better the truck traffic in the area of Thomson's Meat Market, 430 Washington St., because trucks are driving too fast through that area.
"As soon as you come in off of Thomson's, the whole road is blown apart," Mike Wentz, of the borough crew, said. "Everybody that lives right there is having a problem."
