In addition to meeting with the borough’s trash removal contractor, WM, the following issues were considered at Monday’s Gettysburg Borough Council Meeting:

The next electronic device recycling event will be held on Sep. 17. Please register here or call 717.337.0424 before Sep. 16 to preregister.

The Robert C. Hoffman Foundation has awarded a $12,000 grant toward the new $1.5 million welcome center on Baltimore St. According to Main St. Gettysburg Executive Director Jill Sellers, initial design drawing have already been made. “They look fantastic; it’s going to be a wonderful place for the community,” said Sellers.

Paving on Wolf Alley is completed.  Shealer Alley will be paved later in the year.

Routine maintenance on Stevens Run near Gettysburg College has been completed.

Traffic and parking lane lines and symbols will be painted in borough streets in the next weeks.

Many signs are being replaced in the borough.

Police Chief Robert Glenny said there were 17 vehicle crashes in the borough in July, when a normal month would expect about 10.

“They seem to be creeping up,” said Glenny. ““There’s no one common denominator. They seem to be across the board at all different times and locations. I’m watching it.”

The PA State Association of Boroughs will meet Oct. 14 through 16 at the Wyndam Hotel in Gettysburg.

Borough Manager Charles Gable said borough revenues had exceeded expenditures so far this year.  “We’re in a good financial position,” he said.
