HUGHESVILLE - Borough council heard one resident's concern with traffic on Chestnut Alley at its meeting Monday night.
"On the second of this month, I woke up at 6:30 - there were two trucks swamped in my backyard stuck and trying to get out," said Donna Newman. "They said their GPS told them to turn there to get to 220."
Newman requested that the borough place a sign at the alley's entrance, between Broad and Railroad streets, informing drivers that there is no outlet.
"This isn't the first time that that has happened," Newman said. "They have nowhere to go but pull in our property and turn around."
Council also accepted the resignation of Bill Boatman from the borough water authority. One letter of interest in the vacancy has been received, but council decided to advertise the opening in case any other community members have interest.
There also is an open position on the zoning hearing board.
In a 6-0 vote, council approved a $400 fee to retain attorney Steven Hess as zoning solicitator.
"Last year we didn't have anything and he didn't bill the $400," Council President Jeffery Berger said.
There will be an emergency services coordination meeting at the fire hall at 7 p.m. today.
Council's next meeting is at 7 p.m. March 12 at 147 S. Fifth St.
