RS Council to Address Parking Issues on East Main Street


The Roaring Spring Borough Council met for its regular monthly meeting on Monday, May 13.

Council addressed concerns about some parking issues in the borough, most notably in front of the post office on East Main street.

Some members of council have noticed people parking on the post office side of the street which is not permitted, but there are no signs or painted curbs to alert drivers, making it difficult to enforce.

Council weighed the options of putting up “no parking” signs or painting the curb yellow to indicate parking is prohibited.

Council President Bill Brumbaugh said he favors painting the curb instead of erecting more signs in the borough.

Parking has also been an issue at the Little League field with visitors parking in prohibited spots. Police have been issuing citations and council is asking, for safety reasons, that visitors to the field not park in prohibited zones.

Representatives of the Roaring Spring Community Library told council they are beginning to weigh their options on the library’s future and will keep council updated. The lease on the Eldon Inn expires on July 1, at which point council has agreed to go on a month-to-month basis while the library looks for a permanent solution.

Council voted to advertise for the position of a part-time police officer in the borough. Applications are being accepted at the borough office until 4 p.m. June 10. Information on qualifications can be found on the Roaring Spring Borough and Police Department Facebook pages.

Mayor Ronald Glunt proposed putting up an additional sign warning motorists of the road closure along the wall on East Main Street. He said it would be a good idea to put up a sign reading “Road Closed Ahead” further down the street.

Borough Manager Lisa Peel said she has four applicants for a temporary summer maintenence worker position and will begin interviewing the candidates.

Borough residents are reminded that street sweeping began May 23 at 7 a.m.

The next meeting of the Roaring Spring Borough Council will be at 6 p.m. Monday, June 10, at the borough building.
