Local community concerned for condition of streets
By: Kerri Corrado
Brownstown residents are concerned about the condition of their streets. They all have one thing in common: They want answers.
"Everybody is very, very disgusted. There not one happy homeowner I think in the borough of Brownstown " said Delbert Hess, who lives in Brownstown.
Residents are unhappy about the potholes, the dirt, mud, half paved streets and rocks seen on almost every street throughout the borough. Cars are even being damaged from the roads. Neighbors say they can't walk their pets and clouds of dust hover over their houses when cars drive by.
Hess says all of this road work is part of a major sewage project required by federal and state government connecting mains and laterals to houses. He says the process is in a limbo and hopes the work ends soon.
"That's what we want. We want to come to a conclusion. We want to be kept abreast of everything that is going on," Hess said.
Residents tell 6 news they have been told their roads will be fixed by late August to September. They say they have no hope since it has been months.
6 News reached out to the contractor and the engineer listed on the borough building, but there was no answer.
