Parking to cease along Grace Way, Water Street?

October 9, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — 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.
