Traffic Light will not be Finished Before School Starts

August 17, 2016 – Supervisor’s Meeting

Community Concerns

The Supervisors will hold meetings on Recycling in the township on Sept. 14th and October 20th starting at 7 PM.

Supervisor Steve Ytkin announced that he will resign after the September 21st meeting. No announcement on the how the township will seek a replacement for the open position.

The township is switching to Embassy Bank (currently, funds are held at BB&T).

Construction Updates

The installation of the traffic light at Friedenstahl Ave. and Route 191 was supposed to be finished by August 19th, before school begins. Schlouch Contractors has requested that date be extended to Sept. 23rd due to problems with the weather, issues with cutting trees, and a UGI gas main leak.

  • The supervisors will have a meeting with the contractor tomorrow (8/18) to hammer out an agreement.
  • The township has the option of imposing a $1,500/day penalty for not finishing on time. It is possible that the Schlouch could stop working.

Mitchell Avenue will return to being a one way Street into the Middle School before the start of school (8/29).

The township may not have money in its budget next year to make changes to Rose Inn Ave. There was supposed to be a discussion about this at the Sept.7th meeting but that has now been tabled.

At the Sept. 7th meeting there will be a discussion about a Right of Way Ordinance which will pertain to the placement of cell phone repeaters on telephone poles rather than towers.
