Youngwood council voted on Monday night to keep plans for a new Sunoco station moving.

The gas station will be located on the same site as an old Sunoco, which is not in operation. The company plans to demolish Bill's Bar & Grill behind it, move the convenience store into that site and put gas pumps where the current convenience store is as well as add more pumps.

Senior construction engineer Jeff Bauer said Sunoco hopes to have construction completed before Christmas.

Borough council voted to approve the plan, pending approval from the Department of Transportation and the county and creation of a developer's agreement.

“I don't want to hold up their development,” council President Lloyd Crago said.

Sunoco will be responsible for a new sidewalk on Hill Street between Third and Fourth streets.

Bauer said he hopes to start construction in early September.

Representatives from council will attend a meeting on Wednesday with officials from the Greensburg Hempfield Area Library concerning the Youngwood Library branch to hash out details of a lease agreement for the library's new location in the new borough building. Details include janitorial services and use of the building. Council members asked to include in the agreement that the library would let the borough know before holding any events in the new borough building beyond typical library functions.
