Potholes to be patched
CLEAR SPRING — The Town of Clear Spring will patch numerous potholes on Hawbaker Circle this year.
Clear Spring Town Council approved a bid Monday from Licking Creek Paving & Hauling LLC of Big Pool to patch the mile-long street.
Licking Creek was the low bidder at $2,000, Mayor Paul D. Hose Jr. said.
A combination of time, and wear and tear forced the town to put the project out to bid.
Town Clerk Juanita Grimm said previously that the town did not budget for any major street projects and would only do emergency road repair.
The town received $6,879 in highway-user revenue for fiscal year 2012.
Councilman Teddy Hovermale, the town’s street commissioner, said Monday that work will begin on Hawbaker Circle as soon as possible.
Town council agrees to have stone wall repaired
CLEAR SPRING — A stone wall at Tom’s Run is in jeopardy of falling and the Clear Spring Town Council agreed Monday to fund its repair.
The council approved hiring LeRoy Myers Inc. of Clear Spring for $5,685 to fix a 10-foot section of the wall that, if left alone, could collapse.
A tree stump has cracked the section of the wall, Councilman Teddy Hovermale said.
Town Clerk Juanita Grimm said the contractor will remove the stump, remove and relay the damaged section of the wall, add a new mortar cap and new stone to the top of the wall.
Council members questioned if it was the town’s responsibility to repair the wall.
Grimm said the town funded its prior repairs.
Mayor Paul D. Hose Jr. said the repairs will begin as soon as possible.
Permits available for hunting at Clear Spring reservoir
CLEAR SPRING — Clear Spring residents interested in hunting at the town reservoir this year may apply for permits at Town Hall.
Clear Spring Town Council agreed Monday to again allow hunting on the 314 town-owned acres at the reservoir.
