Brookville Council Approves Street Light
2, 2013- John Pozza
Council last night approved making initial repairs to improve its downtown
street lights. Initially, the borough will work to rewire the lights on Main
Street. Council recently discovered that much of the downtown electrical system
is substandard. When the existing street lights were installed several years
ago they were wired with aluminum versus copper. This eventually led to regular
outages, often leaving sections of the downtown completely in the dark.
also addressed another safety issue involving oversized trucks using the angled
parking spaces on Main Street. The trucks often create site distance problems
not only with vehicles backing out of adjacent spaces but with the rear of the
trucks blocking oncoming traffic. The only remedy is to ask that the trucks be
parked on the parallel spaces off Main Street.
accepted the resignation of Matt Hasselback as the borough's code enforcement
officer. Hasselback recently came under fire for allegedly harassing a resident
over code violations.
