Equipment issues discussed by council

Conneaut Lake Borough Council held their June work session with Council members Bill Eldridge, Mayor Timothy Kaider, Penny Monahan and Dick Holabaugh in attendance. Councilmen Billy Paris, Mike Krepps, John Chuey and Dwight Stallard were absent. There was one citizen present. An agenda was provided.

Chairman Dick Holabaugh began a discussion regarding the outflow of Conneaut Lake and the recent “rain event” at the end of May. Over 5 inches of rain fell in the Conneaut Lake area, causing flooding of culverts, pipes, basements and sewer lines. The outflow of Conneaut Lake was actually flowing backward into the lake and the local sewer treatment plant was flooded.

The outflow area is in need of cleaning, but the Borough does not have any jurisdiction to commence clean up work.

The PA Game Commission was contacted by Streets Manager Jim Donnachie since the June public Council meeting, and permission was given to clean out the outflow area. A track hoe will be needed to work in this area.

Councilman Bill Eldridge asked some questions and would like the cleaning process to begin as soon as possible.
