WYOMING — Borough Council will apply for a one-year extension of a Local Share Account grant received under the H2O PA Act for sewer improvement and maintenance.

Borough engineer Mike Amato said at Tuesday night’s meeting he anticipated the extension would be granted, although it would extend the project into its fourth year.

In another matter, Mayor Bob Boyer expressed concern regarding the collection of water on Wyoming Avenue near the Wyoming Monument and Kasarda’s Greenhouse.

Amato said he would investigate the water backup and report back to council.

Joe Boylan, Ashburn Advisers, addressed council on behalf of the borough’s Hose Company No. 2. The company is requesting council co-sign a grant request in the amount of $750,000 for its renovation project. Boylan said the deadline for that request is Dec. 31.

Solicitor Jarrett Ferentino said he anticipated finalizing an inter-municipal service agreement among Wyoming, West Wyoming and Exeter boroughs. Ferentino said the agreement will result in savings to all three boroughs, especially in regard to sewer maintenance and construction.

The borough has purchased a 2014 Ford Taurus police vehicle anticipated to be in use within the next two weeks.

Mayor Boyer invited area residents to attend upcoming borough sponsored holiday events including the Santa Parade at 3 p.m. on Nov. 24 and the annual tree lighting at 5 p.m. on Nov. 30 at Butler Street Park.

“Many Wyoming residents return to the area for these events, especially the tree lighting over the Thanksgiving weekend,” said Boyer.

Council will meet next at 7 p.m. on Dec. 17.
