South River council introduces bond ordinance for sewer system improvements

SOUTH RIVER–The Borough Council introduced a bond ordinance to provide $500,000 in funding for various sewer system improvements. 

The council approved the $475,000 bond ordinance which will fund the $500,000 total cost for the various sewer system improvements on April 20 during the council meeting via video conference. The second and final reading is scheduled for May 11.

Borough Administrator Art Londensky said the borough’s sewer system is almost 100 years old and has collapsed and failed. He said improvements will include replacing the existing sewer main and reconnecting laterals to all affected properties.

The borough will make a $25,000 down payment to cover the remaining cost for the improvements, according to the council.
