Update . . . A Traffic Light Cometh (finally) . . .

Yes, I have been remiss in updating and I apologize for that. It would seem that life has gotten the best of me and, well, quite frankly, there really hasn't been much exciting to review - it's been, for the most part, "business as usual". I hope everyone has had a nice summer. It's hard to believe it's just about over, and we're a week away from the start of school again.

There are a few things worth noting:

1. Moving Permits. Please be mindful that if you're moving in, out or within the Borough, moving permits are required. Please stop by the Borough Office to obtain a moving permit. The cost is $5.00.

2. Karl Johnson - 90th Birthday Celebration. Karl Johnson - lifelong resident of Tatamy Borough will be turning 90 years old on the 31st. To mark the event, Mayor Duignam will be proclaiming August 31, 2010 as "Karl Johnson Day" in the Borough of Tatamy. A brief ceremony will be held at 10am at the Borough Hall. Light refreshments will be provided.

3. Traffic Light Update. Could it be possible that construction will start soon? Chances are the answer is "yes". Based on some information received earlier today, it looks like all the documentation has been approved by PennDOT and construction can start - perhaps as early as the middle of next month. Further information will be published as it becomes available.

4. Main St. Bridge Replacement. A few of us attended a pre-construction design meeting last week with PennDOT. Looks like construction on the replacement Main St. bridge over the Bushkill Creek is (right now, anyway) scheduled to begin in August 2011, with a completion sometime in November 2012. As with all construction projects (especially those involving PennDOT) this is subject to change, but for now, anyway, that's the latest information that I have.

That's it for now. Have a great day everyone!
