Borough approves ban on possession, sale of bath salts

WEST PITTSTON – Council on Tuesday night approved an ordinance banning the sale and possession of bath salts and synthetic drugs in the borough.

Councilman Pete Musinski urged council to begin preparing an ordinance at last month’s meeting to specifically ban the drugs.

The rest of the council meeting concerned the agenda and public comment on the state of the borough’s roads.

Many residents spoke up, but specifically several neighbors from Pacific Avenue attended the meeting to focus on issues with their road. From potholes and poor parking to large trucks passing through, the neighbors said they wanted council to consider possible solutions to the problems.

“This body can’t speak for 50 years ago, but we will address it and look into it,” Musinski said. “It may be like the sewer project and take two years, but we will address it.”

Other questions about the ongoing sewer project and paving projects focused on timelines, the selection of specific streets, dust, potholes, broken lines and noise.
