Northampton Borough Council this evening could wrap up negotiations to purchase a privately owned vacant lot in the heart of the town's uptown business district.
Borough Manager Gene Zarayko confirmed the agenda for tonight's council meeting will include the proposed acquisition of the lot. It is located on Main Street, a few doors south from the Roxy Theatre and is sandwiched between a church and coffee shoppe.
"We are very close, very close, to an agreement of sale," Zarayko said.
The tract is owned by Brian Kroope, who is represented by attorney Richard Orloski Jr.

The Northampton Exchange Club will hold a mixer at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April, 17 at the Gin Mill on Main Street, Northampton.
The purpose of the mixer is to give members an opportunity for an informal dialogue on what the organization is and how people can get involved.
The Exchange Club members say the town is great, as are the needs of its citizens. While some of the borough's civic organizations have slipped into oblivion and folded because of a lack of interest from the public and aging membership, the Northampton Exchange Club continues to thrive.
The headline of last week's Moore column should have said the preservation board meeting will be held April 8. The Press regrets the error.
