Ramp bid accepted

As a result of the Community Development Block Grant Ben Avon received, the borough was able to put out bids for handicapped ramps on Walnut Road and Virginia Avenue. Two bids came in, and council voted unanimously to accept the low bid of $24,268 from DePasquale Construction Services. Earl Bohn was absent.

Ken Opipery said the work cannot be done now because of the cold, but with council having given approval, it can be started when the weather breaks in the spring.
