HUGHESVILLE - To prepare for next year's budget, borough council discussed what major projects must be done in 2013 and looked over the figures budgeted for this year compared to the actual revenue numbers.
So far, the numbers closely match what they expected, council President Jeffery Berger said.
The first budget reading will be at the council's next meeting, Nov. 12, Mayor Walter Reed said.
He said he wants to start planning more than just one year at a time.
"I'd like to get to the point we're working two, three years in advance," Reed said.
In other business, council awarded the bid to repair rock formations known as rip-rap to Hawbaker Engineering, of State College, which submitted the lowest bid of $12,565.
Councilman Richard Smith told the council the company was the only one who looked at the site that needed to be fixed after the bank was eroded from last year's flooding.
The next highest was for $19,500 from Wolfe Coal & Excavating, of Lock Haven. The other three bids submitted ranged from $21,500 to $31,500.
Leaf pickup will begin Oct. 29 in the borough. Applications are available for those who wish to help.
