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 bcome readily available and I encourage all to get vaccinated and get the latest boosters.
I recommend that everyone continue to follow basic public health protection practices of getting vaccinated, isolating or avoiding close contacts with others when sick,
and especially remember to continue to practice the single most effective public health prevention practice of frequent handwashing.
COVID Testing and vaccinations are available at many pharmacies and additional resources are available by contacting the Montgomery Health Dept.
Take precautions and stay healthy.
- Bob Uhrik, Mayor - April 2023
