WARRIOR RUN -- Greg Gulick, the borough's recently appointed code enforcement officer, reported success in efforts to clean up borough properties and bring them up to code.
He has issued 11 warning letters to property owners, and seven have complied, he told borough council Monday. The four remaining have been issued citations and the borough has been upheld in hearings on three of them. Gulick said he has been concentrating on the area near the borough building.
"We've been successful in this part of town," Gulick said.
He also said he will move to other parts of the borough after his work in that area is finished.
In other matters:
• One resident suggested the borough consider re-establishing its own police force. He cited increased crimes in the borough.
Solicitor James Pyrah said the contract with the Nanticoke Police Department is renewed yearly at the end of December.
• A resident questioned the borough's handling of delinquent sewer taxes. At present, the borough puts a lien on all properties with more than $500 in delinquent sewer bills.
Auditor Karen Hazleton had brought up the problem of delinquent taxes at last month's meeting.
"It's worthy of research and discussion," Pyrah said.
Council will next meet Sept. 10 at 7 p.m. in the borough building
