Brookville, PA – Brookville Council will receive planning money for the borough’s proposed Riverwalk project.

At its regular netting last night, Council announced it was awarded $10,500 in Act 13 Marcellus Shale fees from Jefferson County to fund the project’s initial engineering study.

Act 13 was created to enact gas well fees to counties, municipalities and state agencies.

Developing greenways, trails, and outdoor recreational space is one area the fee was intended to help.

The proposed Riverwalk would establish a connected trail system in the borough along its three natural waterways along Red Bank, North Fork and Sandy Lick creeks.
