Levee inspection and Newberry demolition plan approved | News, Sports, Jobs

The Williamsport City Council passed a resolution awarding Jordan Services Inc. professional levee inspection services for $132,800.

The work includes a video inspection of the dike cross tube, said Jon Sander, city engineer.

Estimated TV inspection of 20 cross pipes used for drainage costs $59,000.

Flushing, or cleaning the tubes, costs an additional $65,000 — the majority of the cost — along with engineering and administration.

The City Public Works Department will provide a 2,500 gallon water truck and driver if needed.

The council also passed an order awarding construction work on the East Fourth Street Improvement project to Glenn O. Hawbaker Inc. for $861,383. Funding comes from a state grant matched locally by Lycoming County. It includes work east from Mulberry Street to the intersection of Basin Street and East Fourth to Penn Street, where DiSalvo’s restaurant is also being prepared for a renovation, Sander said.

The council approved a demolition proposal for 913 Poplar St. in Newberry.

There are plans for the owner of the Minute Mart to expand the business to the north property.

Councilwoman Bonnie Katz, Vice President and Chair of the Public Works Committee, thanked the owner for his continued commitment to expanding and improving the business that serves this neighborhood.
