Weissport Council approves spraying weeds along the levee
Weissport Council voted on Tuesday night to pay $1,342 to Weed Inc. to spray the weeds along the levee and the Lehigh River. The work will be done in May.
One section that will be sprayed for weeds is the riprap north of the railroad. The other section is the riprap that will be sprayed from the playground south to the end of the levee. The fee will cover labor, materials, insurance and a guarantee.
The spraying of the weeds along the levee is part of the requirements of the Army Corps of Engineers and Department of Environmental Protection to control the growth of weeds as part of the regular maintenance of the levee for flood control.
In other business:
• Council tabled approval of the Redneck Festival for 2014.
• Council also tabled the Quality of Life ordinance.
Absent from the meeting last night was Gene Kershner, council president; Michael Greek, solicitor; and Jillyan Sterling, assistant secretary.
