A resident protested the idea of sludge being dumped in UN township. Synagro Technologies, Inc. is looking to apply sludge in Plainfield township and, reportedly, looking to expand to other communities.
In regards to the idea of a prison being built in UN, a resident polled the supervisors to see if they were for or against the idea. They all replied that they were against it. The zoning officers said that he has not been approached about installing a prison near Gracedale.
Former supervisor, Andy Donello, complained about water at his home and wanted to know what the township would do about it. The supervisors said they can’t help all the rain we’ve gotten lately, but they will look into it as well as the truck and bus traffic on his street. Also, the PennEast Pipeline is scheduled to be installed 200 feet from his home.
Residents are complaining about feral cats in the area. Supervisors urge people NOT to put food out for them.
