DALLAS — Borough Council announced Wednesday that the borough received its yearly Liquid Fuels payment from the state in the amount of $74,037.

The monies, which come from taxes on road fuels and will benefit the road department, will also help fund the paving of several borough roads this summer.

A Franklin Street resident asked Borough Manager Tracey Carr if a steep crest on that street could be milled down to provide better visibility. Carr said she would have the borough’s engineer look into the situation.

Carr added that Franklin Street is one of the roads scheduled for repaving, along with Pinecrest, Baldwin and the end of Machell from Spring Street to state Route 415.

In other business, council:

-Authorized the purchase of a new computer for the police department, including labor and installation of the operating system, not to exceed $1,500.

-Authorized Carr, upon recommendation from the chief of police, to reimburse 50 percent of the part-time officers’ out-of-pocket cost of new body armor with a maximum of $500.

-Announced that the annual spring cleanup will be held May 5 through May 10 at the municipal building. The hours of operation will be Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Proof of residence is required.

-Announced that the borough’s annual Easter Egg Hunt will be at 1 p.m. April 12 at the Kenneth Young Memorial Park for borough children ages 1-10.

Council will hold its next work session April 14 at 7 p.m. and the regular meeting April 16 at 7 p.m.
