Part of Linden Avenue near the Watson Institute and the intersection of Clay St. will be paved in Sharpsburg.

Councilman Lou DeLuca said the borough will pave the street during Waton Institute's off season.

Sewer work will be included to alleviate water problems on the street.

Light posts

Two decorative light posts will cost the borough $600.

Sharpsburg officials approved purchasing the posts last week. They will be installed along Main Street in the business district.

Thompson Electrical Construction will complete the work.

Civil Service Commission

Greg Domian was sworn in as the newest member of the Sharpsburg Civil Service Commission last week.

Domian's appointment means the commission now has a full board.

Handicap parking

Handicap parking signs will be installed along Penn, Clay and Chapman streets.

Residents can request handicap parking through the borough. The spaces are open for anyone with a handicap tag.

Next meeting

The next council meeting for Sharpsburg is June 20 at 6:30 p.m. Meetings are held at the borough building on Main Street.
