Catasauqua Borough Council looked at parking along Front Street at its meeting June 5. The borough had an ordinance prepared to ban parking on the west side of the street for a distance of 120 feet north of Church Street.
“The road narrows at that point, and it’s necessary to ban parking so we can convert the street to two-way traffic,” Councilwoman Christine Weaver said.

An earlier projection by Fuller Family Trust to erect 67 homes on the Willow Brook Golf Course has been pared to 11 single-family dwellings on large 7,500-square-foot lots. The new plan went before Northampton Borough Planning Commission June 14.
This scaled-back plan, which would have access off Howertown Road, is part of a more ambitious project that calls for 164 homes to be built in adjoining North Catasauqua — proposed mainly as an active adult, 55-and-older community.
The house on Tacoma Street in Hanover Township was abandoned, but neighbors reported that they heard a dog inside. Hanover Township Councilman Bob Heimbecker brought the matter up at a council meeting and asked the township staff to intervene.
Office staff contacted Cindy Witman at Base Engineering, a company that provides building inspection services to the borough. Witman contacted the dog warden, who in turn called Jeanne Fitch, a Pennsylvania humane police officer.
At the June 12 meeting of Catasauqua Area School Board, President Penny Hahn opened the meeting by calling for a moment of silence in memory of the late Sally Reiss, a school board member who had died June. 7.
“Sally was someone I truly admired and appreciated,” board member Dawn Berrigan said. “I have many fond memories of her. She will be missed.”
On the meeting agenda were approvals for a number of items.
In an election follow-up story in the May 25 edition of The Press, North Catasauqua Borough Council candidate Joseph T. Keglovits was incorrectly identified as an incumbent. In fact, the Joe Keglovits currently serving on the council is his father, Joseph D. Keglovits.
In the running this fall to fill four four-year terms on the borough council are incumbents Cherie Gebhardt, John Yanek and Peter Paone and challengers Mark Gioielli and Joseph T. Keglovits.
