Chestnut Street Project - Phase II

The Chestnut Street Phase 2 project is set to begin Monday June 5, 2017, between 5th Street and 7th Street.  Traffic will be one way in the opposite direction on Chestnut Street between 7th Street and 10th Street.  You must turn on to 7th Street to exit Chestnut Street.  This will allow access to the Chestnut Street Deli, The Chestnut Towers and The Department of Revenue.   Road signage will be installed at that time to demonstrate how traffic will be routed.

Traffic will not be affected from Front Street to 5th Street.  Residents between 7th Street and 10th Street should use their rear access to their property.    Parking will be available behind the City Warehouse at Chestnut Street and Awl Street on a first come basis.

Please contact the office if additional parking is needed. Part of this project will be the separation of the sewer and storm water mains in addition to the sidewalk and curb work. The contractor (G & R Charles) will be installing new lateral lines from the sewer and storm mains and extending them to the house side of your new sidewalks. A representative will be present from the Authority to observe the condition of your remaining sewer lateral into your house. If this line is considered to be unsatisfactory, you will be required by the Authority to replace your sewer service line at that time. This replacement and cost will be the responsibility of the homeowner. Downspouts will also be run under the sidewalks and connect to the storm water mains as is required by City Code 139-17. This portion of the project area will be closed approximately 3 to 4 weeks. You will be notified when the contractors are ready to move to the next section. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Cheryl Delsite at 570.286.7820 or cdelsite@sunburypa.org. Each question and concern will be addressed as quickly as possible. Thank you for your cooperation and patience as we complete this important project.

Lyme Disease Awareness Month:

Recognizing Lyme Disease Awareness Month in PA By Rep. Lynda Schlegel Culver (R-Northumberland/Snyder) Spring has sprung, and so has the desire to spend time in the great outdoors. In May, we recognize Lyme Disease Awareness Month in Pennsylvania, because it is important to remember the dangers that deer ticks can carry. Several scientific and media reports claim that due to our mild winter, we could have a bad tick season ahead, and I want to take this opportunity to share some helpful information. Deer ticks are the primary carrier of Lyme disease, which is a zoonotic disease – or transmissible between animals and humans. The Department of Environmental Protection released a study last year confirming a high risk of Lyme in every county of the Commonwealth, as deer ticks have been found in all 67 counties. We lead the nation in confirmed cases of Lyme disease. To prevent against Lyme, the Department of Health recommends using insect repellent with DEET and wearing long-sleeve shirts and long pants when venturing outdoors, along with checking for – and promptly and properly removing – any ticks when you return, and showering shortly after exposure. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state that some of the early signs (3-30 days after tick bite) include rash, fever, chills, headache, fatigue, muscle joint aches and swollen lymph nodes. Some of the late signs and symptoms (days to months after tick bite) include severe headaches and neck stiffness, facial palsy, heart palpitations, and intermittent pain in tendons. House Bill 174 was approved by the House Health Committee in early May to help ensure patients have access to emerging diagnostic and treatment options for Lyme disease. It would require health insurers to cover treatment plans for Lyme disease or related tick-borne illnesses as prescribed by a health care practitioner. The bill will go to the full House for consideration. For more information about Lyme disease in Pennsylvania, I encourage you to visit www.health.pa.gov and search for Lyme disease.
