Karns City fixing roads, playground

KARNS CITY — Borough council hired a contractor Tuesday, May 14, to patch and seal coat roads, and is working on getting its playground in shape for the summer.

Phillips Seal Coating was hired to patch and seal cracks on several streets for $14,740 and apply seal coating for $850.

Council members said $12,000 from the Municipal Liquid Fuels Program will pay for most of the work, and the rest of the money will come from the general fund budget.

The borough bought six yards of mulch for $250 for the playground and ordered another six yards, but the rest of the material could come for free.

Council President Virgil Cousins said county Parks and Recreation director Lance Welliver called him and said the borough could have extra mulch that was delivered to the Petrolia playground.

He said the borough needs someone to haul the mulch.

In addition, council is working with Hile Funeral Home on a war memorial that will be placed along the side of the borough building.

The memorial will have the flag and insignia of each branch of the military, but will not have names of local veterans. The goal is to have it completed before Veterans Day. Cousins said the final cost hasn't been determined, but the borough is accepting donations for the project.
