ELVERSON-The Whitford Corporation sign issue has been resolved.

"A two foot by four foot sign is being manufactured. It will be placed at the entrance to Park Avenue on Route 23 in Elverson," said Rick King, facilities manager of the Whitford Corporation. "The sign will provide directions to the Whitford Corporation and Polymeric Systems Inc.'

Both companies are located in the former Grayco complex.

In other business, council is looking into the feasibility of making provisions to offer recycling of computers, cell phones and other electronic equipment.

* Revitalization is almost finished and the Main Street project is nearly complete.

"Possibly $40,000 is still unused from two grants, which had been obtained from Chester County," Borough Engineer Mark Stabolopscy said.

There is about $16,000 available from the first grant and $27,000 available from the second grant. Some grant funds will be directed to "safe to school walks." Other funds from grants will be channeled for traffic calming and beautification of Main Street.

* Chairman Tom Hess said, "Correspondence had been received from Franklin & Marshall College about multi-municipal planning.'

Multi-municipal planning considers transportation, roads, and some things pertaining to development and recreation, which several neighboring municipalities can do together.

"It does not involve us,' Hess said.

* Council discussed use and care of the snack building in Livingood Park. They are concerned about proper maintenance. Hess said they appreciate the help provided in caring for the ball fields by the Scouts and others who use them. Council will check out facts with other municipalities about insurance policies for those who use Borough facilities.

* Chester County Cares will sponsor a "Can Walk" on Sept. 29 from 10 a.m. to noon in Livingood Park.. Registration is two cans of canned goods, which will go to the local food bank. The goal of Chester County Cares is to collect 50,000 cans of food for families in need.
