NANTICOKE — City Council on Wednesday night passed a motion to hire contractors for snow plowing.
Those hired and their hourly rates are: Voyton Contractors, Nanticoke, $65/hour; Paul Zoltewicz, Nanticoke, $70/hour; and Matt Owzany, $77/hour.
The differences in the hourly rates are due to the type of equipment the company uses, council Vice President Jim Litchkofski said. Specific types of equipment are required for the heavier work.
In the event of a snowstorm, the lowest bidders will be called out first.
Separately, the Engineering Department reported there are eight construction projects on the agenda. One is the Lower Broadway Recreation Project, which is being funded by a Community Development Block grant.
In addition to the state funding, the city is trying to get the federal government to match the grant, so that the project can be completed. So far, the soccer field has been renovated.
In other matters:
• The Hanover Recreation Club will meet in the Club Room at 7 p.m. Monday. The club is a community group that hosts activities for children such as soccer, football and various playground activities.
• The Honey Pot Fire Department will host “Wing Night” from noon to 5 p.m. Oct. 13. Proceeds will benefit the volunteer fire department.
The next council meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Oct. 16.
