On Jan. 30, Alburtis Borough Council discussed the possibility of taking over the Lockridge Church on the corner of Franklin and Church streets and the 17-acre bird sanctuary located between School Street and Fort Sumpter Road from Lehigh County. Council is waiting to see what Lehigh County has to say because the borough wants to be able to afford the repairs needed at the church before making a decision.

Mayor Kathleen Palmer is in favor of taking over the building because it is part of the history of Alburtis.
