Hallstead Hears From Residents

The Hallstead Boro Council met for their monthly meeting on June 16. Present were Martin Brown, Michele Giangrieco, John Giangrieco, Joseph Franks, secretary Cindy Gillespie and a number of residents.

Council had received a complaint at a previous meeting that it was being used as a thoroughfare; at last month’s meeting, Mr. Franks reported that the car wash owner had inquired about the possibility of leasing that portion of the property from the boro.

He commented that there are two things "going" that are being touted as economic development, one of which is the SOLIDA industrial park and the other, the scenic byway. "What do I think?" he said.
