DALLAS — Overbrook Road resident Edward Rome asked Borough Council on Wednesday why no one has gotten back to him regarding a drainage issue he reported at council’s work session last month.
Rome said he showed council photos of his property depicting storm water runoff coming from High Point Acres and flowing into a catch basin, which diverts the water onto his property.
Solicitor Jeffrey Malak said Borough Manager Tracy Carr informed him of the issue and asked that it be put on the top of his to-do list.
Malak pointed out that the problem may not be something the borough has control over, and it might be a civil issue between property owners.
“I believe it is a borough issue,” said Rome.
Carr said that because council meets only once a month, the issue hadn’t been addressed yet, but she assured Rome that it will be on next month’s work session agenda.
In other business, council:
-Approved the issuance of a permit to Bob Dennis of Advanced Pyrotechnics for a fireworks display sponsored by Paul Adamchick to be held at the Luzerne County Fairgrounds on June 21.
-Announced that registrations are still being accepted for the borough’s recreation program, which began on Monday and will run through Aug. 15 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Kenneth Young Memorial Park.
Details can be found on the borough’s website: www.dallasborough.org.
Council’s next work session will be July 14 at 7 p.m. and the regular monthly meeting will be held July 16 7 p.m.
