Blawnox officials approved a $150,000 tax-anticipation note for 2014. The note is from Northwest Savings Bank at 1.75 percent interest.

The money will be used to fund borough operations until tax money begins to come in later in the year.

Comprehensive plan

Former Councilwoman Carol Uminski wants borough officials to start thinking about a comprehensive plan for the business district. Uminski presented information to the borough last week on what would be needed to start forming a plan.

She said a focus could be on the Freeport Road area. Securing funds and support from the community would be the first thing officials would need to consider.

“You really need to engage the community,” Uminski said.
