Committee members of the District A Fund are proud to announce the completion of the our initial project, the Installation of security-pedestrian lighting in Miner Park. Rick Cronauer, District A Committee Chairperson, acknowledged assistance and unwavering support from PPL Utilities Corporation. PPL provided all equipment and labor for eight light poles at no cost. The District A committee approached concerned citizens and businesses in Wilkes-Barre and was successful in raising funds that will cover the first year’s operating costs.
