DuBoistown Borough Council Tuesday night agreed to remove heavy truck traffic from most municipal streets.
Council President Michael Caschera noted that trucks were causing some property damage at certain intersections where they had problems maneuvering turns.
Trucks traveling eastbound at Cochrane and Euclid avenues had been involved in a number of incidents, he noted.
The ordinance passed by the borough will remove trucks from nearly all streets with the exception of those including Route 654, Valley and Brook streets, and Riverside Drive.
Over time, signs prohibiting truck traffic are to be erected along the designated streets.
It was noted that the ordinance will not prohibit smaller trucks from making local deliveries in the borough.
In other matters, borough Police Chief Lou Staccone reported that there may be a buyer for the police car the borough is selling.
Councilman Paul McKinley reported a floor problem with the bathroom in the municipal building.
It was noted the maintenance department will need to check the problem.
Councilman Norman Cowden reported that the surface of the parking lot at the rear of the municipal building is in need of sealing material.
Councilman James Barger recommended using cameras to look at Arlington Street sewer lines before going ahead with any repair work.
The meeting marked the initial Tuesday night meeting for council.
Council traditionally has met the first Thursday of each month.
However, it was agreed to change the regular meeting nights to first Tuesdays of the month since a number of council members had problems attending Thursday meetings.
