$250K Bonds Could Help Improve Butler's Electrical Infrastructure

Council scheduled to introduce legislation Tuesday.

The Butler Council is expected to introduce an ordinance appropriating $250,000 to improve the borough’s electrical infrastructure.

The ordinance would appropriate $250,000 to improve the borough’s electrical supply and distribution system, an agenda for the meeting states. The borough would issue the money in bonds if the ordinance is approved next month.

The Council is expected to just introduce the ordinance Tuesday. It is scheduled for a public hearing and final vote at the Council’s Feb. 18 meeting.

In other news, a resolution urging the U.S. Congress to dedicate additional funding for fixing the nation’s highways will be mentioned at the meeting.

The resolution would demonstrate officials’ desire to support a bill state Assemblywoman BettyLou DeCroce sponsored, which asks the Congress to dedicate additional funding for “highway maintenance and infrastructure improvements in New Jersey.”

According to the resolution, the New Jersey Department of Transportation estimates that “roadway conditions are a significant factor in one-third of approximately 600 annual traffic-related deaths” in New Jersey.

Lincoln Park, Washington Township, and East Hanover, among other local municipalities, have already issued resolutions supporting the bill.
