Allen dog park still in the works

Thursday, April 25, 2013 by AL RECKER Special to The Press in Local News

Allen Township supervisors continue to pursue plans for a dog park.

The park would be located at the southern end of Howertown Park, near the Nor-Bath Trail. The proposed project has been on the township's agenda for the past couple of years.

At their meeting earlier this month, supervisors said they are awaiting approval from Northampton County before they can move ahead with the project.

No timetable for the project was given.

Northampton approves bond sale

Thursday, April 25, 2013 by AL RECKER Special to The Press in Local News

Northampton Borough Council on Thursday unanimously approved the sale of $2.4 million in tax-free municipal bonds.

The bonds will pay for several projects, including street resurfacing and construction and property acquisition.

Helped by an A-2 bond rating, the borough is projected to pay only 1.9 percent interest, which is considered to be very favorable, said Borough Manager Gene Zarayko.

Labeled as "a wrap around bond," the new municipal bond will pay off an existing bond issue. The existing bond has one year of debt remaining at $300,000.

Bigger and better

Thursday, April 25, 2013 by The Press in Local News

Public works personnel are putting the finishing touches on a huge road salt shed to the rear of the Northampton municipal building and police station. The larger shed is needed to stockpile materials for removing and melting ice and snow. These materials are purchased through a state program and the borough has to order a specific amount in order to receive a savings. The older, smaller salt shed will be used for storage.
