Mike Holtz, director of Warren's Department of Public Works, provided an overview Friday of some of the things going on around the city.
According to Holtz, the Warren Skate Park has re-opened following repairs.
The park was closed following an Oct. 2 incident in which someone broke into the park's lighting system box in an attempt to access the money inside. The box was damaged beyond repair and had to be replaced at a cost of approximately $500.
"We checked it out this morning," Holtz said on Friday. "Everything's working fine."
The park re-opened Friday morning after being closed since Oct. 3.
The furniture on the sidewalk along a block of Pennsylvania Avenue downtown is slated to be packed up for winter storage next week Holtz said.
The benches and tables had an extended stay downtown this year due to an earlier than expected spring warm-up. The city set out the perennial, warm weather fixtures on April 2 this year.
"We're going to get it all packed up around the restaurants and businesses before winter," Holtz said.
Holtz also noted he was hopeful paving work in the 200 block of Pennsylvania Avenue would be take place during the week.
"I hope to have it taken care of next week," Holtz said. "I've been working with a local contractor to get that taken care of."
The paving follows utility work which occurred during the last week of September and required a trench to be dug across the roadway. The trench was filled in following the work, but it remains unsurfaced.
According to Holtz, "It's going to be a busy week."
