Seasonal municipal projects were highlighted at an Elizabeth Township commissioners meeting on Monday.

Township officials said milling and paving work is under way on Conroy and Cornell streets, Wildcat and Concord roads, Colonial Drive and Yorktown Place. That work is expected to be completed this week.

Commissioners authorized the township to move ahead with its regular maintenance of lots around abandoned properties.

Zoning enforcement officer James Matscherz said the township usually hires two contractors to cut weeds and grass around 15-20 properties. He said one of those contractors isn't available this year and another landscaper probably will have to be hired.

“It's too many yards for one person,” said Matscherz, who was authorized to seek bids from new contractors.

Matscherz said having someone tend to abandoned lots “keeps the neighborhood looking nice.”

Commissioner Larry Vota said township crews will collect spring yard waste May 13-17.

Residents should have leaves and branches bundled and placed curbside for pickup by May 13, he said, with branches no longer than 3 feet.
