Cleaning up

Borough road crews were cleaning streets today.  Salt, trash, and other debris have accumulated after a long and trying winter. At last night's borough council meeting of the whole, Borough Manager Ron Miller said that 300 tons of "anti-skid" was applied to the town's roads this season, and that it will take a few weeks to remove it all.  He asked residents to bear with crews as they work to tidy things up.
