Martinsburg Borough Considers New Street Sweeper Grant
May 11, 2023
Martinsburg Borough Council’s May meeting featured a discussion on a new street sweeper grant.
The street sweeper is from 1991 and was purchased by the borough in 2003. The “vintage” sweeper, as denoted by Council member Durban Metzler, has more than 8,000 hours on the vacuum and the hopper is rusting, according to Richard Brantner Jr., Martinsburg borough manager.
The borough will receive grant writing assistance from the Blair County Planning Commission. The USDA grant the borough is considering requires a 30 percent match. The borough will have to pay around $78,500.
