Danville low sewer rates

DANVILLE – Sewer rates in Danville are among the lowest in the region, according to the summer edition of the Danville borough newsletter.

A recent survey by engineers Gannett Fleming showed quarterly sewer rates set by the Danville Municipal Authority among the least costly in the region.

The firm compared 2014 rates in 20 communities based on usage of 14,650 gallons per equivalent dwelling unit per quarter.

The Danville authority rate was the fourth lowest at $96 per quarter.

Other quarterly rates were Palmyra, at $70; Lancaster Area Sewer Authority, $84; Harrisburg Authority, $88; State College, $100; Burnham borough, $105; Bloomsburg Municipal Authority, $116; Hampden Township, $132; Berwick Area Joint Sewer Authority $90 to $189; Lewistown, $147; Valley Township Authority,$150; Sunbury Municipal Authority, $150; West Hanover, $154; Williamsport Sewer Authority, $155; Milton Sewer Authority, $118 to $204; West Branch Sewer Authority, $165; Lemoyne, $165; Shamokin Dam, $184; and Camp Hill, $270.

The newsletter also states more than 4 tons of items was collected during Dumpster Day May 10. The collection included 825 pounds of household electronics, 200 pounds of printers, 400 pounds of computer towers, 635 pounds of microwaves and 7,425 pounds of TVs processed for recycling or a total weight of 9,485 pounds.

Also included in the newsletter is information about Danville Borough Council committees.

The codes and zoning committee is working on options for the recycling program for 2015, has forwarded a final draft ordinance to the council to be adopted to modify three parking regulations in the downtown to encourage development of upper-floor housing and is exploring the possibility of a residential parking permit system for municipal lots in the central business district.

The emergency management committee completed its annual emergency management exercise during the test installation of the new Route 11 levee closure and is cooperating with the Montour County Emergency Management Agency to finish a county hazard mitigation plan.

The parks and recreation committee is considering a naval memorial to be located next to the flag pole at River Front Park, is planning two maintenance and repair projects for the Civil War and World War II monuments at Memorial Park and is working with the property committee on the possibility of preparing a master site use plan for Canal Park and the adjacent parcel that housed Doc’s Shoe Repair.
