Avis Council prepares to have streets paved

AVIS — Avis Borough Council has unanimously recommended approval of a $73,900 bid from Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. to pave five borough streets.

The action came at council’s in-person meeting Monday night. The plan will be sent to the streets committee, the borough engineer and Clinton County for approval of liquid fuels funds.

The streets to be paved include Clinton, Cliff and Kirby and Myrtle and Ivy alleys.

Once formally approved, council can pay for the paving with liquid fuels money and additional borough funds.

Council also discussed the tar and chip road project completed along Prospect Avenue, which totaled $2,796, and the tar and chip to be completed at the intersecting streets — Spring Street and Grier Lane– which totaled $1,908.

The contractor for those jobs was not disclosed.

In addition, at the May meeting, council approved sewer inspection fees for individuals who plan on moving and selling their homes. Those individuals must pay $250 in inspection fees and if there are any issues within the system on their property, they must be corrected to pass the inspection.

Borough council also noted that many individuals are behind on sewer payments from 2019 and before. If not paid, their water will be shut off, council said.

Council did not issue any approval of late payments accepted without penalty.

In the June meeting, parks and tennis courts were opened as Clinton County moved to the green phase.

The next Avis council meeting will be held on Monday, Aug. 3, at 7 p.m. in the borough building on Ross Street.
