Sidewalk cutting - ongoing additional sidewalk work
The Borough hired Always Safe Sidewalks to cut edges of stable but uneven sidewalk on most of Route 518 in late October. This work used the reminder of the funds in the 2021 budget for sidewalk work. Cutting is much less expensive than replacing sidewalk slabs, enabling us to address more areas more quickly and for less money.
Additional sidewalk cutting may be scheduled in 2022 after evaluation of the completed Rt 518 cutting work using potential unspent bond funds or 2022 budget funds. Council discussion on this matter are ongoing.
The state has lifted the COVID emergency and many of the restrictions have been removed.
Access to vaccination has become readily available and I encourage all to get vaccinated including a booster. Although, I caution that this remains a time of uncertainty, so I recommend everyone to keep following the COVID protection practices of getting vaccinated, wearing a mask
in crowds, social distancing, and especially remember to continue the single most effective public health prevention practice of frequent handwashing.
I wish everyone a safe, healthful, and joyous holiday and winter season.
- Bob Uhrik, Mayor - December 1, 2021
