Borough Council also honored R. D. Lambert Jewelers for their 102 years in business. The resolution was originally passed at the April meeting.
Linda Stubits, Nazareth School Board president, was present at the meeting to maintain collaboration with borough council. School board meetings are held on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month; the school board’s budget and taxes will be discussed at their next meeting.
A borough resident also brought up concerns about parking on Seip Avenue, Kohl Street, and W. Locker Street. Some patrons of Sweets N’ Savories are parking in front of fire hydrants and past stop signs, which is blocking people’s view and could lead to accidents. The police and public works crew will take a look at the area to see what’s going on and see what can be done about it.
Council approved a motion to hire two seasonal public works employees, and will advertise that they are looking for two more employees at a pay rate of $15 an hour. This past Saturday, the Nazareth Farmers Market had a successful season opening; it will now be open every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Center Square. The library is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year, and will be having a ribbon cutting on June 4 at 5:30 p.m. before the high school seniors’ parade at 6:30 p.m.
The next Nazareth Borough Council meeting will be held on Monday, June 7 at 6 p.m. in the council chambers.
