BIG RUN — The Big Run Borough Council is still discussing the amount of money it's going to cost to repair the bed of the borough dump truck.

Nick Lantz, council president, said it would cost $625 to weld the bed of the truck and could be as high as $725 for a larger area.

Lantz said the time estimated is 15 hours at $35 per hour for each of the jobs.

Marlin Rearick, Big Run maintenance man, said all of the rubber at the bottom of the bed and the bed itself need to be cut out and replaced.

Stan Derise, council member, said council needs more prices by the September meeting.

The sign was damaged back in April when an IAV Stryker National Guard all-terrain vehicle lost its brakes on the Indiana Hill and drove into the emergency truck pull off, striking a steel girder that supported the giant wooden groundhog. The large Phil display should be back up within the next week. (Photo by Larry McGuire of The Punxsutawney Spirit)
