Fifteen bags of trash were filled in a Hughestown borough clean up. Thanks to Jerry Lynch, Robert Yaple Park was in excellent shape for the Kristy DeRome Care Walk on May 5 which was a success with over 100 walkers. The park also looked good for the opening of the Hughestown Girls Softball League.
Progress on the painting of the borough building continues.
Recycling bins have been applied for, but the recycling ordinance must be rewritten. The burn ordinance must also be rewritten.
Mayor Hindmarsh, Dave Stefanoski and Marie Griglock attended a meeting at Pittston Area with Dr. Garzella and Mr. Serino to discuss sewer problems on Rock Street near the elementary school.
Grease stuck in the system caused a break in the sewer line. A photo of the sewer line and a bill for repair were given to Dr. Garzella. Engineers from the school will look into the problem.
