Water quality reform was the focus of Forest City Borough’s February 4 meeting.
Borough secretary Susan Coleman announced that effective March, 2008, individuals serviced by the Lackawanna River Basin Sewer Authority (LRBSA) will experience a sewer rate increase – the first in fifteen years. The new residential sewer use fee will be $240 per year, up from $180 per year. The rate increase is intended to help offset the cost of PADEP–mandated improvements to LRBSA facilities, improvements that have been necessitated by the Chesapeake Bay Nutrient Reduction Strategy.
The Montrose Borough Council met on February 4 for its regular monthly meeting, which proceeded pretty much in its regular fashion. Topics discussed included parking, permits, wood stoves, and proper notification of potential appointees.
The daughter of Albert Belinsky came to the meeting with concern that her dad had not been notified about the postponement of his appointment to the municipal authority the month before. She stated that Mr. Belinsky had not known about the decision until he saw it in the newspaper. A council member apologized, explaining that sometimes the January meeting is the first time that council members even know who is up for a given position. Still, he said, if a nomination is postponed someone ought to make sure that the person be notified in good time.
