Borough Council acquired a $110,000 EPA Grant to pave the parking lot next to the library with a semi-permeable pavement and put in rain gardens to help reduce storm water runoff into the South Branch of the Codorus Creek. Council had also secured an additional $24,000 Grant through the York County Conservation District to restore the stream bank along the parking lot. The total project cost is $195,515. Bids were received and the project was awarded to Shiloh Paving and Excavating. This project will go a long way to spruce up downtown, not to mention the obvious reduction in storm water runoff and pollutants into the creek.
