The Borough of Ridgway will work to improve its emergency response plans with the Ridgway Fire Department in response to the brutal storm that swept through the area Thursday afternoon, July 26.
Ridgway Borough Council member Rich Parrish detailed the recommendations of the Fire, Police, Property and Equipment Committee during Monday night's regular council meeting.
According to the report, borough manager Martin Schuller reviewed the past storm damage of the fallen trees on the borough streets and alleys with committee members.
Backed by a 35 from medalist Josh Roselli, Ridgway stretched their early undefeated streak to 2-0 with a 24-stroke victory Monday against visiting DuBois Central Catholic at Laurel Mill Golf Course.
Roselli was complemented by a trio of 40s fired by teammates Mitchell Gilmore, Josh Mitchell, and Jesse Reynolds. T.J. Schlimm capped off the scoring with a 41 for a team total 196.
Matt Aiello and Mitchell Stark also were on the course and fired 41, followed by Jake Klawuhn with a 44.
Many Ridgway residents have been taking notice and voicing their concerns over unsightly, light gray, silken webs in many of the trees within the borough.
The fall webworm, Hyphantria cunea [Drury], got off to an early start building its impressive silk tents on the ends of limbs and sometimes enclosing entire branches.
Ridgway Borough Manager Martin Schuller says despite the recent surge residents need not be concerned for the health of the trees.
