JOHNSTOWN - The city Department of Public Works this week is starting to pick up piles of brush off residential terraces.
Second Ward Councilman Chris Foss told the Common Council on Monday crews will pick up brush from terraces, but residents are not to push the brush onto their streets. He said DPW will continue to pick up brush in the city through the end of the month.
Residents also have the option of bringing their brush piles to the normal West Main Street drop off area, Foss said.
Elsewhere in liaison reports given to the council, Foss noted the Johnstown Public Library's 17th annual fundraiser - Johnstown Classic Mini-Golf - will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the 38 S. Market St. building. The library will have an 18-hole miniature golf course with obstacles, multi-level holes, and a 19th hole with snacks for sale.
Foss said 57 "book-themed" baskets will be up for raffle, and admission will cost $5, with proceeds benefiting library programming and services.
"I think this is real exciting," Mayor Sarah Slingerland said of the event.
In other business:
"The estimated cost of projects is significantly larger," Slingerland stated.
"By and large, they're pretty happy with the downtown area as far as governmental services," the mayor said.
