First Denver junior council member takes oath
By: ALICE HUMMER Review Correspondent, Staff Writer
The first of the three elected junior council members took her oath of office at the Oct. 8 Denver Borough Council meeting.
Makiya Kreisher is a senior at Cocalico High School and an active volunteer at school and in the community. An Honor Society member, she is considering a career in law. Kreisher will attend the first council meeting of each month from October through December.
Street repairs are coming to a close for the year. The Franklin Street Reclamation Project was finished Oct. 8.
We have not received any billing on this project," said borough manager Mike Hession. "A bill in the $130,000 to $135,000 range will be coming. The bill for work on Evergreen Street will come out of the water fund, because repairs were due to water damage."
Chief George Beever complimented the Denver Fair.
"It was the quietest (Denver) fair my officers can remember, and that is good." he said.
Beever commended Councilman Rodney Redcay for beginning training for the Youth Aid Panel.
"We now have two active juvenile youth aid panels," he said.
Recycling got a boost with the removal of the shed behind the municipal garage. Plans call for a cardboard recycling dumpster to be placed at that location. It will be for the borough’s corrugated cardboard. Council will keep the community updated on when the dumpster arrives and is in service.
In other business:
? Council tabled consideration of an engineering and design study to make changes to the curb radius and/or traffic signal pole location on the southwest corner of the intersection of Main and South Fourth streets. Truckers consistently hit the pole about once every seven to 10 days.
? Representatives from the Boy Scouts and other groups associated with the Denver Memorial Park will meet to discuss plans for replacing the Boy Scout cabin now that the borough has received $37,000 from FEMA for the flood damage sustained by the cabin. No date has been set for the meeting.
? Council adopted an ordinance to eliminate the two-hour parking signs on the north side of Walnut Street between North Second and North Third streets. Formerly, when Weave Corporation was in business, the two-hour parking signs allowed residents spaces to park and discouraged employees from using street parking. Should a business move into the former Weave building, council will re-address the need to reinstate the two-hour parking limit.
