Ebensburg Borough Council made the decision to postpone the High Street sidewalk project until 2015 and made some progress in the plans of Sheetz, Inc. to build a new store within the borough. The projects, along with others, were discussed during the regular meeting on Monday, March 24. Councilwoman Cecilia Houser, a member of the borough’s street committee, requested that council consent to postpone the sidewalk project due to the delay in the bidding process, as well as the opportunity for the borough to receive a grant for the

project. Houser reported to council that Keller Engineers submitted a highway occupancy permit application to PennDot at the end of January, and communications have been ongoing to achieve compliance. However, the project cannot proceed to bidding without the permit. “The intent had been to acquire the HOP and bid this project in January,” said Houser. “The process has already gone so late into the year that, even if the HOP is obtained within the next few weeks, actual bidding could not get underway until early June.” SEE EBENSBURG, PAGE 3A
