Our next North Branch Canal Trail work day will be held tomorrow morning, Saturday 3/22, at 9:00am, meeting at the intersection of River Drive and Mt. Zion Drive in Cooper Township, Montour County. This location is roughly 2.5 miles east of the Danville Soccer Park or 4.5 miles west of the Catawissa Boat Club (please see map below). Please look for my silver Toyota Tundra with a silver cap parked on the river side shoulder of the road. Please plan to arrive between 8:45am and 9:00am tomorrow if possible so that we can walk together to the day’s work site. Please remember, we will be parking and walking near private property, so it is very important we respect the neighboring landowners’ properties. We will work until no later than 1:00pm.
Tomorrow’s work will involve woody debris and small tree clearing along the trail corridor. No earthmoving work of any kind will be done, so shovels, picks and other similar tools are not needed, though pruning shears and tools of that nature may be useful. Volunteers should wear sturdy work boots, heavy-duty (briar resistant) clothing and work gloves. Only MARC staff and veteran trail crew volunteers will be permitted to operate chainsaws or other power equipment. All volunteers will be required to sign liability waivers before beginning any work. Because trail conditions are still very rough, we ask that children not attend this session. Additionally, because of the legal agreement governing trail construction and access, please understand volunteers may only be on site during the times listed above, in the presence of MARC representatives. The trail corridor remains closed to public access until further notice.
Weather permitting, the next work day is scheduled for Saturday, March 29th, from 9am – 1pm. After that, we’ll be doing a work day at the Hess Recreation Area in Danville on Saturday, April 5th, from 9am – 11am and then taking off the weekend of April 12/13 for the opening weekend of trout
If you have any questions or need more information, please email me at this address or call me on my cell phone at (570) 336-2060. Thank you for your interest in the North Branch Canal Trail project.

It will be a 5K run on borough streets beginning at 9 am on Satuday, May 17th. She provided a certificate of insurance as well as a planned route for the runners. Council took it under advisement and requested she return to our March 3rd meeting when the Police Department and Streets Department would be present in case of any further information needed by those departments for the run. She stated she would be able to return.
Minutes of February 3rd were approved on a Motion by Peter Fleming and seconded by Lori Steele. Motion passed on unanimous vote

President John Novak then addressed the vacant council seat; three residents had shown interest in the council position. John Domanski inquired about the term of this seat. The Vacancy will be a 2 year term since it is an appointment rather than election. Nominations were then put on the table. Lori Steele nominated Carolyn Bausch. Barb Kriner nominated John LaMotte; Peter Fleming seconded the Motion for John LaMotte. There was no second for Carolyn Bausch. Vote was taken by a show of hands; Barb Kriner, Caressa Compton, Peter Fleming and John Domanski voted in favor of John LaMotte; Lori Steele voted no. Appointment of John LaMotte to Council carried on a 4 - 1 vote. Peter Fleming then thanked Carolyn Bausch for her willingness to be a part of council and sees a seat on council in her future. Lori Steele also thanked Carolyn for her enthusiasm and interest at council meetings. Due to the absence of the mayor, swearing in was not done at this meeting but will be done on March 3rd.
Discussion was then held regarding the Gas Line Committee. On a motion by Barb Kriner and seconded by Peter Fleming, John Domanski was appointed to lead a subcommittee to follow up with gas line introduction into the Borough.
