NANTICOKE — City Mayor Richard Wiaterowski has appointed Jennifer Polito as Nanticoke’s accounting director.

Polito, of Roaring Brook Township, is a graduate of the University of Scranton, and a previous employee of Melone Co. She has been a public accountant for more than 22 years, and is currently working toward becoming a CPA.

Polito said she applied for the city position of while working for Melone, where she had been employed for the past seven years.

“I feel that my experience and education will guide council (in the right direction)” Polito said.

Wiaterowski has also proclaimed May 17 Kids to Park Day, in Nanticoke. The city will participate in the National Kids to Park Day during which children and families are encouraged to attend outdoor activities such as visiting a neighborhood, county or state park.

The goal of Kids to Park Day is to promote outdoor activities which will be beneficial for health, as well as to call awareness to the natural beauty seen while visiting a park.

The appointments of Planning Commission Board members Stephen Buchinski and Theodore Katra have been confirmed.

The Arch Street Demolition Project has been awarded to low bidder Brdaric Excavating for $19,874.

Rebecca Seman, founder of the Community Garden, said she is hoping to get a farmer’s market together in July, as well as other community orientated events. For further information on the organization, Seman can be reached at 570-793-7910.

Engineer Daryl Pawlush said the downtown Streetscape Project is “moving along quickly” and that the “water, gas, and electric companies are relocating their facilities this month.”

Pawlush added that it is taking longer to complete the project to ensure that it is “done right.”

It will be a project that “everyone in Nanticoke will be proud of,” said Pawlush.

The citywide yard sale will be held on Saturday.

The next council meeting will be Wednesday at 7 p.m.
