Borough meeting postponed

Monday night’s Jersey Shore Borough Council meeting has been rescheduled to June 24 at 5:30 p.m., due to a lack of quorum.

However, a SEDA-Council of Governments public hearing that was scheduled to open the meeting continued on as the organization held no requirement for a quorum to deliver its presentation.

Kristin McLaughlin, senior program analyst for community development, walked borough council members present through the application process for Community Development Block Grants.

According to estimates, Jersey Shore Borough is likely to be allocated $97,210 this year for eligible projects, which will be able to be used through 2022.

CDBG funds cannot be used for government activities or political purposes, according to McLaughlin.

It also must respond to a formal need, serve to eliminate slum and blight, and benefit low to moderate income households.

During the hearing, a council member proposed applying some of the funding to the access road between Railroad and Allegheny streets for the rails to trails active transportation project.

McLaughlin also suggested the borough could time a curb cut project after future street paving.
