Brookville Council also recently heard complaints from a Marlin Street resident who is having continued problems with the storm water runoff near her home.
The city had installed extra storm drains in the area over the past few years, but there are still issues during heavy rain. Council has investigated the issue numerous times and indicated it has no liability in the matter. The problem ultimately stems from vacant property behind the woman’s home on Elm St. that contains a wetlands area.
Brookville Council also agreed to paint lines on South Main Street, between Route 28 and Penn Highlands Hospital. At night, the area is poorly lit causing safety concerns for motorists approaching the hospital and Laurelbrooke Landing.
