Blawnox has a new procedure for filing right-to-know requests with the borough.

A drop box is located in the borough office, near the entrance, where people can place their requests.

Borough employees will empty the box at least once a day and notify residents when their request is ready. They can then pick up the information at the police station.

Solicitor Jack Cambest said the new procedure was put in place because of the small amount of staff members and the number of requests the borough receives.

Gateway signs

The proposed gateway signs for both ends of Blawnox are closer to becoming a reality.

Borough engineer Gordon Taylor said designs for the signs are being finalized so the project can go out for bid. The borough is working with Penn State Center on the project.

“We're just about there,” Taylor said.

Next meeting

The next regular council meeting will be Sept. 26 at 6:30 p.m. at the borough building on Freeport Road.
