DALTON — Board member Bill Brandt said North Abington Township will allow Dalton Borough to store rock salt at the township’s facility due to planned expansion. Brandt suggested that borough may share the labor of the expansion.

“I think it’s good for us,” he said. “I think it’s good for them.”

Brandt said that the only problem might be the distance. But he agrees with storing salt there until council is able to afford a salt shed.

Brandt also said borough engineer John Seamans advised drainage work under Church Street.

“He (Seamans) is going to be working on that,” he said.

In other business, president Gus Vlassis announced that he received a flyer from state Rep. Karen Boback about a Concealed Carry Seminar, which will be held at the Dalton Fire Hall on April 7. It will be about state firearm laws and the Castle Doctrine Law. Lackawanna County District Attorney Shane Scanlon and Lackawanna County Sheriff Mark McAndrew will speak at the seminar.

“If anyone’s interested, they have to make a reservation,” said Vlassis.

Also, board member Lorraine Daniels announced the Dalton Fire Company Ladies Auxiliary will have a pancake supper on Saturday, March 19. She also announced that the Dalton Lions Club will have an Easter egg hunt at the Dalton Fire Hall on Saturday, March 26.
