JS OKs funds to repave four streets, three alleys

JERSEY SHORE — Borough Council plans to repave four streets and three alleys this year.

Council earlier this week approved funds for the projects.

At a cost of $100,173 in liquid fuel funds, the borough will pave the portions of Thompson Street from Main Street to Front Street; Walnut Street from Oak Street to Elm Street; Calvert Street from Allegheny Street to Seminary Street; and Eden Street from Riley Street to Burke Street, according to Cody Hoover, Jersey Shore’s borough manager.

Meanwhile, the borough will use $93,959 from its general fund to pave South Alley from Thompson Street to Locust Street, Juniper Alley to Walnut Street and an unnamed alley that stretches from Spruce Street to Pine Street.

In other news, the council renewed a three-year contract with Lecce Electric at a cost of $3,045.

Lecce Electric manages the traffic lights in the borough, according to Hoover.

Council decided to table a request from the Central Keystone Council of Government requesting COVID funding to help it recuperate losses unable to be recovered through grant money.

Further, council unanimously agreed to allow the Jersey Shore Little League to begin its season May 1, with the caveat that it follow CDC guidelines when meeting, according to Hoover.

Council announced that the Jersey Shore Area High School will use the Town Meeting’s outdoor stage at the Jersey Shore Borough Recreational Area for a concert on May 27 from 7 to 8 p.m., with a rain date set aside for June 3.

Additionally, the council unanimously allowed the Jersey Shore Public Library to use the borough’s recreational field for their petting zoo on June 19.

Councilwoman Barb Schmouder was also put forward to join the Williamsport Area Transportation Study Metropolitan Planning Organization on behalf of the borough.

The borough’s audit returned with results from 2020. Hoover described the borough as “having a good year.”

Additionally, council scheduled a variance hearing for the residents at 124 Riley St., who would like to perform construction over the street setback, a range where property owners cannot typically build, according to Hoover.
