CLEARFIELD – Clearfield Borough’s student employee has been recognized for his hard work this year.
At Thursday’s Clearfield Borough Council meeting, Borough Operations Manager Leslie Stott announced that the borough’s co-op worker has recently been recognized at the annual co-op banquet for having the best attendance of all the co-op students this year.
Stott said that Porter Kling, son of Todd and Jessica Kling and a senior at the Clearfield Area Junior-Senior High School, was a “solid worker” and that the borough couldn’t be more pleased with him.
“We really were glad to have him this year. He’s done an outstanding job,” Stott said.
Also, at the meeting, Police Chief Vince McGinnis warned yard sale patrons to be courteous and respectful when visiting the various yard sales and garage sales throughout the borough. McGinnis said many of the patrons are parking on sidewalks or against the flow of traffic.
Additionally, Code Enforcement Officer Larry Mack said he has recently issued 43 notices regarding property owners with high grass.
Mack said he has been “lenient” due to the recent rainy weather, but residents must comply with the borough’s ordinance to keep their lawns trimmed.
Mack said there have also been numerous problems with individuals blowing their grass out onto the street. He said he will be issuing citations for those violations as well.
Mack said the grass gets into the storm drains and will clog the drains, causing problems during heavy rains.
