Council will meet at 7:30 p.m. April 21.

HARVEYS LAKE — Dr. Fred Lubnow of Princeton Hydro on Tuesday updated borough council on the floating wetland islands project.

Lubnow said he will be able to provide a map displaying the location of the islands, once the borough completes securing the permit for the project.

He said the islands will be placed close to the shoreline, and he wants to see “everyone in the community comfortable” (regarding the locations). The project is being funded by a 319 Grant from the state Department of Environmental Protection.

Megan Sgarlat Prynn, vice chairperson of the Harveys Lake Environmental Advisory Council, announced details for the 2013 Harveys Lake Earth Day Cleanup project. The project will take place noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, April 21.

Participants will gather and sign in at the Lake-Noxen Elementary School, 135 Westpoint Ave. The event, which will be held rain or shine, has been organized in cooperation with the Great American Cleanup of PA.

Anyone interested in the cleanup may contact Megan at (570) 814-9230 to register for the event or for further information.

The planning commission meeting scheduled for today has been postponed until April 29 at 7 p.m. Plans for the cellphone tower at Cliff Street will be discussed during the meeting.

Mayor Clarence Hogan said residents should remove inoperable vehicles and all rubbish from their properties. He said residents may call the police department or visit the borough’s website for details on the borough’s regulations regarding this matter.
