COURTDALE — Mayor Dorothy Duesler announced Tuesday the borough’s decision against using the Larksville Police Department to provide police services.


“At over $100,000 per year, that’s not something that would be cost effective for the us,” Duesler said.


He also addressed the borough’s consideration of participation in the West Side Council of Governments.


“Although there are certainly benefits, there is also a potential cost,” he said. “We should step lightly as me move forward on this.”


The council also discussed residents’ request to have gas lines extended to properties on Wood Street.


“Although we will certainly help you in any way that we can,” said council President Carl Hodorowski, “we are not the gas company and we don’t own those lines.”


Also, council tabled the issue of adjusting sewer fees after a final payment on a sewer related loan.


“We are going to look into the borough’s sewer maintenance costs, including any type of emergencies that might arise throughout the year,” said Hodorowski, “then we will come back to the issue and discuss numbers.”


Council also named Northeast Recycling Solutions as provider of its recycling services, citing cost effectiveness and quality of services. The borough previously used Exeter Borough’s recycling services.


Hodorowski said some concrete work would be needed near the borough building to prepare for the on-site recycling program probably beginning in May. He also announced a general cleanup day for May 4, starting at 9 a.m.


“All borough residents are encouraged to come and help in maintaining their borough,” he said, “it is a great opportunity to participate as a community.”
