DALLAS – Council approved payment of two projects at a meeting Wednesday, signifying the end of repairs to the borough after last year's flooding.

Adamski Excavating & Paving Inc. recently completed stormwater pipe repair on Monroe Avenue and storm water inlet and basin work on Lake Street. The projects' costs totaled $3,976 and will be reimbursed with Federal Emergency Management Agency funds.

The company also repaired a damaged storm water inlet and curbing on Machell Avenue.

Other storm water improvements will be made throughout the borough. The borough engineer will design and solicit proposals for storm water infrastructure work in the area of Highland Boulevard.

Also, council awarded a bid to Quad III Group Inc. for street and storm water infrastructure repairs to Wellington Avenue in accordance with a $75,000 community development block grant.

In other business, council approved the purchase of two mobile data terminal computer units, electronic kits, mounting and console kits for two police cruisers at a price not to exceed $7,798.

The equipment, to be purchased through the state program from Brite Computers, will allow the police department to link directly with the county computer aid dispatch system.

Council also approved a settlement offer from Hybrid Claims Group on behalf of Covenant Transport related to a traffic accident on March 4.

The settlement includes an estimate of damage to a traffic light pole, control box and concrete mounting pillar at the intersection of state routes 309 and 415.

What's next

The next regular Dallas Borough Council meeting will be held Sept. 19 at 7 p.m. in the municipal building.
