DALLAS — Borough council took another step toward revitalizing downtown Wednesday.

Council approved a resolution authorizing Borough Manager Joseph Moskovitz to apply for a $50,000 state grant.

The grant, through the Land Use Planning Technical Assistance Program, allows the borough to update zoning ordinances and study transportation possibilities for the Main Street, Route 415 and Lake Street intersection area.

A roundabout for that area has been mentioned.

However, Moskovitz said that other ideas would be explored.

In a related matter, the Dallas Planning Commission, which also met Wednesday, recommended the council adopt the Master Plan of the Back Mountain Council of Governments.

Lehman Township’s supervisors adopted the plan in August, and Dallas council unanimously voted to adopt the plan Wednesday night.

Councilman Robert Post was not in attendance.

Using the new ENRADD radar system on Huntsville Road, borough police issued three citations in September.

Police also used the laptops, provided by Luzerne County, in two of their cars.

The computers have been in use by the police for around 45 days.
