Borough seeks proposals for Front Street site planning

The ink is drying on a pile of paperwork needed to finalize the borough's purchase of the FL Smidth property on Front Street.

The land was officially transferred to the borough June 28.

"We had a lot of technical problems with the title," borough Solicitor Jeffrey Dimmich told council members at the July 8 borough council meeting. "The deed is recorded, exemptions are filed and the property taxes and transfer taxes were paid."

What is the borough's next step?

Editor's note: This is the last in a three-part series of articles on the Catasauqua Police Station.

After years of delays and disagreements among Catasauqua Borough Council members, the ink is finally drying on an agreement of sale signifying the borough's purchase of the FL Smidth property. While the land is meant to be developed for both housing and municipal services facilities including a police station, that does not mean ground will be broken for a new station in the near future.
