Drug Bust Report, Bryden St. Closing & More

by Amiee Jones - August 11, 2020

Important business was addressed at the Borough Council Meeting on Monday (Aug. 10), beginning with a follow up about the recent drug bust on East Avenue. The case began with the arrest of an individual which was followed by a tip from someone living in that person’s same residence that the arrested individual was operating a Methamphetamine lab out of the trunk of a car that was also located on the property. This arrest and drug bust occurred on August 3rd, and included the responses of the Wellsboro Police Department, the Tioga County Sheriff’s Office, and the State Police Clandestine Lab Response Team, as the hazardous material involved was extremely sensitive. At the Borough Meeting, Chief of Police Jim Bodine assured that the area on East Avenue has been cleared as “environmentally safe”, as all the hazardous material has been thoroughly removed. Chief Bodine offered his appreciation to all the departments and officers involved in resolving the situation. Although the investigation is said to be ongoing, Chief Bodine stated that, “We should have the arrests summed up pretty soon.”

Louis Prevost raised a motion to close Bryden Street for the “phase 1 rehabilitation project, scheduled to begin August the 10th.” There will be no residual effect to any other streets. He also reported an updated option for Wellsboro utility customers, as Electronic Billing is now available and bills can be sent directly to the customer’s email. “To sign up, visit the Borough’s website and click on the ‘view e-bills’ tab below the calendar.”

Because of understaffing that will occur after colleges resume session, Packer Park Pool’s last day to be open is August 25th. Other community events included the motion to approve the Wellsboro Bible Church’s Ice Cream Drive. The Church plans to drive through the side streets of town to hand out ice cream (Aug. 20, from 5-8pm).

Borough Council Meetings are a great way to stay current and involved in community proceedings. These meetings are open to the public, and are held on the second Monday of every month at 5pm.
