Susky Revisits Parking Ban
By Barbara Whitehead

Over the years, various Susquehanna Boro Councils have debated the idea of a parking ban on West Main Street, and several have attempted to enact such a ban. There have been many complaints about the dangerous situation at the end of West Main, where the street is so narrow that two vehicles traveling in opposite directions cannot pass each other if there are vehicles parked there, and there have been continuing complaints from PennDOT that snow plows cannot clear the streets during the winter due to parked cars. At their November 25 meeting, the current council thoroughly debated a proposed amendment to Ordinance 416, which will permanently ban parking on West Main St. from the intersection of Third Ave. west to the boro line.

Second, the new address should be given to all of your correspondents: once the address is issued, the Postal Service will allow you to use your old address for only one more year. And last but not least, you need to identify your residence (or business) by attaching the new street number to your mailbox, and, in some cases, also to your house.
