According to Hellertown resident Joe Delfoe, water will soon begin to flow from the fountain located in the town square.
Delfoe told borough council at the April 1 meeting he expected to begin the fountain restoration project the second week of April. The fountain is located in Detwiller Plaza.
"I do have volunteers who came forward," Delfoe said. "In three weeks we should have water flowing."
Last November, Delfoe approached council members and informed them an unnamed individual donated funds to reactivate the fountain.
Judith's Reading Room and the Hispanic Center Lehigh Valley have established a partnership that will provide 1,000 books valued at nearly $9,000 to the center's WIC Program over the next year. At a recent dedication ceremony, officials associated with each organization unveiled the donation at the Center's East Fourth Street location.
City Authority President Vaughn Gower said at the April 11 meeting the yearslong investigation regarding conversion to an operating authority outside strict city council control is still a yearslong investigation.
Gower said there have recently been a number of workshops but nothing definitive has resulted. The approach, members agreed, is methodical.
Later, Executive Director Stephen Repasch happily announced the wind agreement is now complete and the two sensor towers are soon to be erected.
