HUGHESVILLE - Hughesville Borough Council wants to ensure that everyone who needs help in an emergency will get help.
"People who need help to get in and help to get out should contact the borough office," Mayor Walter Reed said at Monday's borough council meeting. "If something happens we want to help them."
The borough is updating its emergency management plan, and anyone who needs help in case of emergency, such as the flooding that occurred during Tropical Storm Lee in September 2011, can be put on the list for assistance, Reed said.
Anyone who wants to be added to the assistance list can contact the borough office at 584-2041
In other business, after further review council agreed that the alleys and streets reviewed by the state Department of Transportation will need resurfacing.
The list includes Academy Street, between Spruce and Main streets, and Walnut Street, between Main and Railroad streets.
"We'll need about $49,000 for alley repairs and about $35,000 on the street side," Council President Jeff Berger said.
Council agreed that any action on a paving plan should be held until natural gas company representatives can be consulted to see if any gas lines are to be laid this summer.
"I'd hate to fix the streets and have them dug up again," Councilwoman Mary Burns said.
Finally, council decided to send the case of a long-dilapidated shed on West Fourth Street to the local district judge after neighbors complained.
"There's a mad possum in the shed and the shed's falling down," Berger said. "(The neighbor) chased it with a shovel and ran it into their garage and that's where it's living now."
