An agreement was approved for the multi municipal main line cured in place pipe lining sanitary sewer line rehabilitation project at the June 7 Lower Macungie Township Board of Commissioners meeting.
This project includes Upper Macungie, Salisbury, Coplay, Whitehall and Lower Macungie Township and makes the costs of this project much more reasonable than doing it by each municipality. There were six bids received with Insituform being the lowest. The total amount for all municipalities is $898,557 with Lower Macungie Township’s portion $363,216.

Lower Macungie Township’s free summer concert with Johnny’s Jukebox Band at East Texas Park, 5624 East Texas Road, East Texas, 6 to 9 p.m.
While many stores can sell you a bike or a cup of coffee, it’s not every day you’ll find one where you can get both at the same place – or one that has built a community quite like South Mountain Cycle & Cafe.
The Emmaus-based store, which is celebrating its fifth anniversary this year, strives to create a sense of family with its patrons. In the front, the cafe serves four blends of fresh-roasted organic coffee from Albany in addition to pastry items and weekly specials.
The rest of the store is dedicated to bikes and accessories for both casual and hardcore bicyclists.
