            The Street Committee met and discussed using the LRIP (Local Roads Improvement Program). The LRIP funds can only be used for blacktop and must be used by the end of June. It is a matching grant that will cover repaving Arlington Avenue from 4th Street to 2nd Street and the committee recommends also including the next block to the east. The estimated grand total for the whole project is about $65,000 of which the LRIP would cover $19,000 and the rest would come from the Street Outlay Account.
