NANTICOKE — The Pennsylvania-American Water Co. will start water main work and paving of the several city streets within the next few months, it was announced at Wednesday’s City Council meeting.
The locations affected are as follows:West Grand from Hanover to Line, Line Street from West Union to Grand, Prospect from East Main to Broad, East Broad from Prospect to Walnut, Christian from State to Green, East Broad from Christian to Chestnut, and Chestnut from State to Alley.
City officials said parties have contacted the city interested in constructing housing for students at Luzerne County Community College. The possible locations are the 400 Club and Ellis building parcels. A zoning change, as well as height variances would be required in order to fulfill the plans.
Council approved the installation of two “no parking” and two “tow away” signs on Main and Lower Broadway streets. City Manager/ Finance Director Pam Heard said Police Chief William Shultz asked for the signs because residents are parking too close to the corner, causing problems for emergency vehicles.
In other matters, it was announced:
* Hanover Fire Co. No. 4 is having a ham-and-eggs breakfast 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 28 at the Transfiguration Church Hall.
* A fundraising event for the Clifton R. Lewis Good Life Foundation will be held at the High School at 6:30 p.m. April 27. NFL star Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie will be among those attending the event.
