|Brookville Council Seeks Help for Project
|Wednesday, March 20, 2013
BROOKVILLE - Brookville council last night approved seeking engineering support to develop Depot Street as a trail project. With matching grant money, council would like to improve the corridor to provide access to the Redbank Valley Rail Trail from downtown. Up to $1,500 from its dedicated trail fund will be used to study the best way to repair a large culvert near rose siding road that was washed out in the 1996 flood. According to vice president Phil Hynes, the culvert would need construction of a bridge or some other access over a stream that crosses the trail. Hynes said any grant the borough would apply for would need to have an engineer study done as part of the application.
in other business, council also approved seeking bids for an estimated $200,000 in street paving this year. Among the streets targeted are Madison, Jared, North Pickering, Groty Way, Craig, Rebecca and Federal.
Council also referred two hot button issues to its community resources committee for review and recommendation. One would establish a public space rental rate structure, which would include the use of pavilions at the memorial park. The other would establish tobacco or smoke-free zones at borough parks and playgrounds.
