PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” The members of the Public Safety Committee said at a recent meeting that with the opening of the brine water treatment facility near the Punxsy sewage treatment facility, on-street parking will have to be eliminated for both Water Street and Grace Way.
Larry Chenoga, committee member, said that he, along with Mike Porada, committee chairperson; and Ben White, borough manager, spent several hours observing traffic coming in and out on the two streets and recommend that all parking be eliminated because of the size of the trucks hauling the water in for treatment.
PUNXSUTAWNEYâ€” Sunday School students from the First Church of God in Punxsy, Grace United Methodist Church and the Salvation Army did some
gardening at Harmon Field Sunday morning as part of a Bible lesson.
A new initiative called "Hands On Faith" has begun for students K-5, said Karissa Spencer, director of Children's Ministries (K-5) at First Church of God.
Spencer said that once a month, "Hands On Faith" will try and perform a community service project to coincide with a Bible lesson.
