Exonerating Tax Collector Council Plans Tree Study At Curwensville CURWENSVILLE - Curwensville Borough Council plans to study a proposal to remove a number of trees on Meadow Street which have been blamed for a long-standing sewer problem. The Curwensville Municipal Authority claims tree roots are getting into storm sewers and causing water to back up in a number of basements in this section. The Authority, at a joint meeting with Council last night, recommended that the trees be removed. Spokesmen say that it is a problem of Council since storm sewers and not sanitary lines are affected. The two groups met in the borough hall to discuss problems and other matters of mutual concern. A claim that a property was not restored to its original condition after extension of a sanitary sewer line in South Side also was discussed by the two groups. At issue is about three loads of red dog which George Riddle, the property owner, claims was covered up and not replaced. At the request of Council, the Municipal Authority will take up the matter at its next meeting, presumably to consider whether the red dog should be replaced. The Authority also reported to Council that it plans to replace about 430 feet of sanitary sewer between Hill and Chestnut streets.
