Sidewalk committee gives recommendations



WILLIAMSPORT - A committee studying the use of sidewalks has recommended that the town council look at each request on its own merits.

Town Clerk Bonnie J. Errico said the committee will meet again to finalize its recommendation before submitting it to the town council.

Last summer, when the owner of the Blue Moon Caf put some tables and chairs outside her shop, the town told her to remove them. Several residents protested the ban.

At the Nov. 4 town council meeting, Councilman James Kalbfleisch said that the sidewalk committee recommended a case-by-case review of requests for sidewalk use - as long as they don't violate zoning regulations, aren't a nuisance and don't include alcohol use, according to minutes of the meeting.
