DUBOIS – Last night DuBois City Council approved a request from Stoltz Toyota-Scion to hold a 5K race to benefit the Wounded Warriors of Pennsylvania.
Stoltz contacted City Manager John “Herm” Suplizio in order to get permission to use city streets for the race. The race will be held at 10:30 a.m. Oct. 5.
Pre-registration for adults is $20; it’s $15 for children 12 and under. Event-day registration is $25. Refreshments will be provided, and runners will receive a T-shirt and other giveaways.
The proposed path would start at the Stoltz Toyota-Scion and end there with segments along Beaver Drive and Beaver Meadow Trail. The exact trail is still in the works.
Suplizio told Stoltz to contact DuBois City Police Chief Mike DiLullo to finalize the race’s route.
In other business,
Council approved a 0.4-acre wetland credit for Stoltz-Hyundai to expand its business. DuBois City had 3.86 acres of wetland credits, and only used 0.9 acres for other projects. The state Department of Environmental Protection required Stoltz to obtain permission from DuBois City in order to utilize the wetland credits.
