July 5, 2017 – Upper Nazareth Supervisor’s Meeting
A resident asked the supervisors to take proactive measures to prevent sludge being spread in the township. Plainfield is currently having an intense public debate on this issue.
A question was brought up about invasive bamboo in the area. Bethlehem township has outlawed some species of this plant. The supervisors said they would look into it.
Supervisors held a discussion about access to keys to the facilities at Tuske’s Park. The township may move over to a key pad system.
The streets in the East Lawn Gardens area will be resurfaced from August 14 – 25. The first notice about this project will be sent to residents next week.
Resolution 17-10 was passed. This will bring the maintenance of Monocacy Ave and American Hemlock Lane under township control.
Resolution 17-11 passed. This consolidates Chrin lots 2 and 3 into one parcel of 134.03 acres.
Your Tax Dollars at Work
Approval of an additional $8,239 to the resurfacing project to pave Klipple and Newport roads. This will bring the cost of the entire project to $140,122.75.
Approval to release ~$63,000 in security funds for Phase 3A in Eagle’s Landing.
Approval of $4,005 to pay Snyder’s Technology to do a domain overhaul for the police department. This price will include ransom-ware protection and will be paid out of a $5,000 Pipeline grant. There will be an annual charge of $2,590 for this service and it will have to be added into the budget.
