Do you already
There may have been a time when life slowed down in the summer at our schools. That fiction is supported at Blue Ridge by the School Board’s lazy meeting schedule this year: once a month through the summer. It’s hard to believe, however, with many areas of the campus and buildings torn up by construction and programs being cut back.
Susquehanna Boro Council met for their regular monthly meeting on July 20; present were Sue Crawford, Dave Scales, Joe Varsik, Roy Williams, Allen Wolf and Secretary Roberta Kelly.
It was reported that work on the site of the demolished Capra building has been completed. All of the allocated funding has been spent, the upper portion of the lot has been blacktopped, the area behind the retaining wall has been backfilled, and work has been done to ensure that rain water is directed to the drainage system. Since the demolition was funded through a grant, the site must be inspected by a representative from Harrisburg, who will issue a close out report that will be sent to the county Housing and Redevelopment Authority. The authority will in turn issue a close out report. The process will take anywhere from three to six months, after which the boro can determine what to do with the property. Council had received a letter of interest from an individual who would like to purchase the property, but the close out process must be completed first, and the property would need to be appraised and put out to bid if it is decided to sell it.
