Open house is set for Aug. 6

In a low-key meeting July 11, Bath Borough Council gathered for the first time in the new Bath Borough Hall, 121 S. Walnut St.

Council and Mayor Fiorella Mirabito-Reginelli are planning an Aug. 6 open house and ribbon cutting. The open house will be held 3-6 p.m. The ribbon-cutting ceremony begins 6 p.m. Both events are expected to draw a large attendance, including elected state officials, local dignitaries, chamber of commerce members and residents.

The Bath Borough Public Works Department received accolades for recently earning second place in a state contest for innovation. The group developed a device that efficiently lifts street grates to facilitate drain cleaning.

The device is expected to be chronicled in the state’s Borough News Magazine.

“I am impressed with their teamwork,” council President Mark Saginario said.

It was reported the dogs in the borough are wagging their tails in anticipation of the August opening of Paw Park. The park will be located on North Chestnut Street by Firefighters Park. There is a council thought to rename the street Bow Wow Lane.

Councilman Barry Fenstermaker congratulated the mayor for the 30th anniversary of My Place Restaurant, 270 E. Northampton St., which she and her husband own and operate.

Council unanimously passed the Lehigh Valley Planning Commission’s Bath Multimodal Safety and Parking Analysis project report.

The next council meeting is 7 p.m. Aug. 6 at the Bath Borough Hall.
