WILKES-BARRE —At its work session Tuesday, city council reviewed the agenda for its upcoming meeting later in the week.

On the agenda for the 6 p.m. public meeting Thursday at City Hall:

• A street-sweeping agreement between the city and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation for $3,753. The city will clean a total of 12.5 miles of state routes.

• The second and final reading of an ordinance to vacate a portion of Corbett Lane.

• The purchase of rock salt for the 2019-2020 winter season in accordance with a previously bid state contract. City Attorney Tim Henry said the price fluctuates daily, but because it’s bid through the state the city will get the best price for the rock salt.

• Giving authorization to Director of Operations Butch Frati to sign off on maintenance improvements for Wilkes University’s pedestrian improvement project. There are numerous documents involved and this would cover all of them, eliminating the need for council to approve separate resolutions.

• Disposing records of zoning permits from 2000 through 2002 from the Planning & Zoning Department.
