In the audience this evening were Rick, Jen and Evan Warren as well as Karen Blackledge, news reporter for the Danville News.
Rick Warren addressed council with concern over his son’s ATV riding on their property being an issue for neighbors. He had read the newspaper article on the last meeting and wanted council to know his son does not ride an altered vehicle; it is a 2012 Yamaha Raptor vehicle and he only rides on their property at 46 Blue Hills Court. He does not ride all hours; during school has an 8 pm curfew and 9 pm at other times. He also does not ride before 8 am. Evan had talked to several neighbors when he got the vehicle and none had any issues with him riding it. Jen Warren stated she had conversations with Chief Parkes and there was no violation taking place. It was suggested the Warrens speak with the neighbors who have the issue and hopefully they can work out the concerns.
Minutes of September 4, 2018 were approved on a Motion by John Domanski; seconded by Beth Rake.
All voted in favor.
Financial Reports for July 2016 were approved on a Motion by Beth Rake and seconded by Peter Fleming. All voted In favor.
Dan Gable, Street Superintendent, then addressed council concerning the purchase of a new bucket truck to replace our failing machine. He has looked at and test driven a 1996 vehicle that is for sale. It has 3 small things to be fixed but it has a new transmission and would be a good investment for their department. Asking price is $4500.00. The boon on the vehicle does need inspected. On a Motion by John Domanski and seconded by Beth Rake, Dan was given permission to purchase the vehicle. All voted in favor.
John Domanski inquired about the status of Mainzer Hill project. Sudol paving has milled off the old tar and chip surface. Again the weather has not been cooperating with the completion of the project.
Discussion then went to the problem with large trucks going on streets in the borough such as 3rd Street, and recently S. Mill Street onto 10th Street. Properties are being damaged. Kevin Romansik stated there is a nice sign in Danville and is going to get a photo of it for council to see if it would work in our areas. Dan will take note of areas that would need signs posted. Will discuss at 10/1/18 meeting.
At 7:28 pm, John Domanski made a Motion to Adjourn. Seconded by Kevin Romansik.
Riverside Borough Council meeting adjourned.
