Brookville Leaf Problem

October 16, 2013- Judi Anthony
BROOKVILLE- Leaf pickup in the Borough of Brookville will not begin until later this month, and raked leaves are causing a problem in some areas of town.

At Tuesday night’s council meeting, Street Superintendent Bob Receski said his crews will start picking up leaves on October twenty eighth. Some residents have already started raking leaves and piling them on the street rather than in their yards. Borough residents are reminded that when raking leaves, they can be raked to the curb but not onto the street.

The council approved spending up to two hundred dollars to purchase “Happy Holiday” meter bags. The council had previously approved free parking from November twenty-ninth through the end of the year to encourage patronage at local businesses. The two parking limit will be enforced, and the bags will only be placed on the two-hour meters.

Repairs to the lights on Main Street have been made and the all of the street lights are now working again. At the October first meeting, the council approved spending five thousand six hundred dollars to repair the lights. For several months, the street lights have been lit only along the south side of the street, leaving a large stretch in the dark. Caylor Electric worked in conjunction with the street department to make the repairs.
