Blawnox Council approved $6,258 worth of payments for the borough-building renovation project.
McRandal Co. received $2,481 and Merrit Electric Group received $3,777.
The companies completed heating and electrical work, respectively, on the project.
Borough manager Sherry Kordas said a few small issues remain, but the companies can be paid.
The payments were contingent on those items being completed.
The borough building project included an expanded police station and an elevator that can take people to the second floor of the building, where meetings are held.
Blawnox officials plan to begin organizing the borough's annual Memorial Day celebration.
Memorial Day is May 27.
The borough regularly holds a parade and program in town on that day.
The next regular council meeting for Blawnox will be March 28.
The 6:30 p.m. meeting will be held at the borough building on Freeport Road.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
