Minutes from the March 16 meeting follow:
The Riverside Borough Council met on Monday, March 16, 2015 in the Municipal Building, 301 Dewart Street, Riverside, PA. Meeting was called to order promptly at 7:00 pm by President John J. Novak. In attendance this evening were Vice President Peter Fleming, Council members Caressa Compton, Barb Kriner, John Domanski and John LaMotte. Mayor Joseph Oberdorf and Secretary Deborah Bausch were in attendance as well. Absent this evening was Lori Steele.
Carolyn Bausch was the only resident present for this evening’s meeting.
Minutes of March 2, 2015 were approved on a Motion by Caressa Compton and seconded by John LaMotte. All voted in favor; Motion passed.
Old Business included discussion again regarding addresses for those residents of Kipps Run Road. John Domanski has been in touch with a resident there. Contact has been made with the 911 Center to verify address information. Note will be posted on website and Facebook page to remind residents living in the Trailer Park to be sure that is part of their mailing address which should help alleviate the mail problem in that area. Elysburg Road area was another discussion of residents having issues with mail and house numbering.
New Business was a request by Chuck Hoffa to extend the brake retarder area. A previous letter to PennDot was for the Avenue G area which was denied due to the grade of that road. Letter will be reviewed and resent to extend area to include Elysburg Road area and part of Sunbury Road.
John LaMotte inquired about the quiet zone for the railroad. Trains passing through the area in the early morning hours are not following the required whistle procedures.
Mayor Oberdorf then put several items on the table. Chief Parkes inquired if the council members had read the Temporary General Order #2 which was previously emailed to them. Several stated they had received it but not read it. Solicitor Michetti stated he reviewed it and it is in legal order. Order to be approved at the April 7, 2015 meeting.
Guns were discussed. Council requested Chief Parkes get a cost of the Remington 870 as well as taking the two guns to get appraised by Maple Ridge Gun Shop who previously stated she would take 2 guns for trade for the Remington.
Trash at a property in the West End was discussed. Borough Code requires each homeowner to have a trash hauler. Letter will be delivered by Chief Parkes to the resident requiring compliance with the Code or be fined.
Discussion was held on the Airport Trees and the legal proceedings being handled by Attorney John Mihalik’s office. Motion was made by John Domanski and seconded by Barb Kriner to add an additional $2500.00 to the budget for the issue. All voted in favor; motion passed.
At 7:45 pm John Domanski made a Motion to Adjourn the Council Meeting; seconded by Caressa Compton. Meeting adjourned. Next meeting will be April 7, 2015.
