Councilmen Garruzzo, Gorham & Visceglia had no reports, but they wished everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.

Councilman Shaak did not give a report, but the following advisory was provided to the Coast Star. The handout cited the passing of former DPW employee Bruce Allen. Bruce served the Borough well for twenty-six years and continued to be a frequent visitor to the Borough Yard; he will be missed.

Leaf collection would continue until December 30th. There will be no recycling on Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s Day. Trash collection for those on the Thursday route, shall be on Wednesday.

During the construction of the new Water Storage Tank the DPW Yard may have to be closed to the public during normal business hours. We ask for your patience.

Once again we ask the public to be mindful of Chapter 7, Section 10 of the Municipal Code and keep all vehicles off the street during snow events to ensure the continued flow of traffic.
