Council voted 5-1 to seek bid specifications to sell a 40-vehicle parking lot along the railroad tracks at 543 Jubilee St. The property’s market value is $60,000. Brent Labenberg voted no. He said the spaces should be rented by the borough, predicting that would generate $4,000 to $5,000 a year.
But Waddell was concerned about the borough’s liability if it rents the parking lot, such as if someone falls on ice.
Council unanimously agreed to move forward to sell 4052 S. Second St. in Upper Milford Township, 18.5 wooded acres on South Mountain that have been appraised at $70,000. Waddell said council sees no future use for the property by the borough.
