At its monthly meeting on Tuesday, May 14, Myerstown Borough Council unanimously agreed to award Construction Master Services with the 2024 paving contract for $150,964.25.

The contract includes Goodwill and West Park streets, Lebo, Monroe, and Madison alleys, parts of West Maple Street, Lingle Avenue and Route 501, and the 16 E. Main Ave. main parking lot.

Council also unanimously approved a contract for surfacing treatment of part of Monroe Alley, part of East Main, and part of Broad Street to the Russell Corp. for $24,818.10. Council rejected the only bid received for parking lot sealing, which council said came in at around twice the budgeted amount.

There was no public comment during a hearing for Ordinance #878, repealing outdated ordinances. The ordinance, which repealed defunct ordinances concerning the (no longer existent) police department, a per capita tax, and landlord reports, was adopted unanimously.

In other news, council unanimously:

  • Agreed to hire Nolt Paving to complete the repaving of the borough’s western tennis court for $18,690. The court does not have a net but one will be installed following the completion of the project. The other tennis court is expected to be repaved next year.
  • Approved Resolution #16-2024 setting the fee schedule.
  • Agreed to remove Sandra Hennock from the recreation board due to her lack of consistent attendance and participation.
