LEHMAN TWP. — The Board of Supervisors awarded a paving contract Monday for $140,324 to Asphalt Maintenance Solutions, which was the only bid received.
Roadmaster Doug Ide said the project includes paving a portion of Jackson Road, a portion of Fedor Road up to Mountain View Road, all of Mountain View Road, a portion of Old Route 115 to Market Street and Market Street up to Route 118.
In other business, Supervisor Ray Iwanoski announced work to renovate the new Back Mountain Regional Emergency Management Agency building is ready or bid.
The project, which is being funded by two gaming grants, includes constructing a building where the EMS trailers will be housed, restorative work on the main building and the addition of a meeting/training room. The facility is located adjacent to the Luzerne County Fairgrounds.
“I think this is a positive step for Lehman Township,” said Iwanoski. “It is centrally located and it’s state-of-the-art.”
The board voted to appoint Brian Doran as a full-time member of the Zoning Hearing Board and Bob Margellina as an alternate. The next Board of Supervisors meeting will be at 7 p.m. Aug. 19.
