LH council adopts ordinance; accepts deed

LOCK HAVEN — Lock Haven City Council adopted an ordinance, accepting the deed for a section of First Quality Drive from its intersection with Walnut Street to the Castanea Township border.

Council held a public hearing during its July 12 meeting in preparation for the final vote held on Monday night.

City Manager Gregory Wilson said a copy of the Deed of Dedication would be included with the ordinance.

Further action regarding First Quality Drive will be brought to council on Aug. 2 when it considers adopting a variety of amendments of its vehicle and traffic ordinance.

The proposed changes include establishing a speed limit and enforcement of no parking along the roadway.

Other amendments to be considered include:

— Prohibiting left turns from Spring Street onto Bellefonte Avenue.

— No parking anytime in areas where fire hydrants were relocated by PennDOT.

— No parking at city parks from dusk until dawn every day.

Councilwoman Barbara Masorti was absent from Monday’s meeting held in council chambers at City Hall.
