Boil Water Advisory In Effect

Pennsylvania American Water Company has issued a Boil Water Advisory for folks in the Tatamy area until further notice. From WFMZ:

The Pennsylvania American Water Company has issued a MANDATORY BOIL WATER ADVISORY for customers in parts of Northampton County. They say an equipment malfunction has led to lower disinfectant levels and an increased chance that the water may contain disease-causing organisms. Customers may experience low water pressure or no water pressure while the situation is being resolved. The boil water advisory applies to customers in the following municipalities: Easton, Nazareth, Upper Nazareth, Palmer, Pen Argyl, Plainfield Township, Saylorsburg, Stockertown, Tatamy, Wind Gap, Bushkill Township, and Forks Township.

Tatamy Hunt Streetlighting - A Resolution

I received the following from Bob Mack (our Borough Engineer) today and thought I'd share it with you.

Met Ed assured us that, if Council votes to turn the lights on “now” and have the developer pay the energy cost, they will move on the turn on request as soon as Council passes the necessary resolution.

Basically, this means that Council will be presented with a resolution to review and approve at the October 6th Council Meeting. Once approved by Council, MetEd will be directed to turn on the power to the streetlights. There is much work to do on the part of the developer, the Borough Engineer and MetEd with regard to the eventual redesign and replacement of the streetlighting system in Tatamy Hunt, but it looks like we're finally moving forward.

According to Bob,
MetEd would act within 2 or 3 days from their receipt of the resolution from Council.

So there you have it folks. Light at the end of the tunnel (sorry, I just couldn't help myself).

See you around town!
