Election changes date of next Coaldale meeting
Coaldale borough council will meet next at 7 p.m. Nov. 15. The date was changed from Nov. 8 because of election day.
In other matters, council on Tuesday announced that Trick or Treat night in the borough will be held from 6-8 p.m. Oct. 31.
Also on Tuesday, council voted against refunding a $2,500 sewer connection fee to Richard and Roxanne Marek of W. Phillips Street. The couple had asked for a refund because the system was installed through a grant. However, solicitor Michael Greek said that homeowners are still responsible for the cost of running pipes from their homes to the curb.
Council also approved a request from engineers Alfred Benesch & Co. to apply for Community Development Block Grants for two projects. One is for sewer connections on Moser Avenue between Third and Fourth streets at a cost of $65,000. The other is road improvements on E. Phillips Street between East Street and the borough line at Lansford, at a cost of $53,000.
