KINGSTON — Municipal Council took care of several matters of business during Monday’s regular meeting despite the absences of Mayor James Haggerty, Administrator Paul Keating and three of the borough’s seven council members.

The four members present voted unanimously to enter into a new agreement with Forty Fort for code enforcement services. Under the new agreement, Kingston will pay Forty Fort $50,000 over the course of the year for the efforts of code enforcement agent Stephen Nowroski.

In 2012, the same services were provided to Kingston, but the borough paid monthly bills based on how many inspections were performed.

In other matters, the council members voted unanimously to approve the purchase of new mobile computer systems for municipal fire and EMS trucks at a cost of $28,271.

It is anticipated that the new computer systems will enhance the borough’s response and coordination efforts in times of emergencies in Kingston as well as neighboring communities.

The council also voted unanimously to award a landscaping contract for all municipal properties to Lawn and Turf Maintenance for $3,499. The work to be performed by the company will be that which is traditionally beyond the scope of what the borough’s Department of Public Works can offer.

Lawn and Turf Maintenance will take care of jobs such as fertilization and crab grass treatment.

The next regular council meeting is Monday, May 6 at 7 p.m.
