WEST WYOMING — In a cooperative effort with the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, the borough voted Tuesday to be the lead applicant for a Growing Greener grant to help improve the water quality of Frances Slocum Lake.

The grant will also help fund stream-bank restoration and curb the erosion and storm water runoff in the upper Eighth Street area.

Council also voted to apply for the FEMA National Flood Insurance Program rating system.

To participate in the program, the borough must perform a series of storm water mitigation tasks. If the borough scores high enough on the rating system, residents will get a discount on their flood insurance, said council president Eileen Cipriani, pointing out that many of these tasks already have been accomplished.

Council’s next regular meeting is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Aug. 12.
