Seven residents will sit on the board, serving 3-year staggered terms. They will monitor the Open Space program and make recommendations to supervisors. They will not receive payment for their services but can appropriate funds for expenses.

Public Works

Public Works wants to purchase an asphalt planer and a roller for $79,726.40. The township has received an LSA grant from the County for $35,000. With $20,000 from the budget, Supervisors would have to approve taking an additional $24,726 from the equipment fund. A discussion followed the debate about how Public Works is running out of space to store their trucks and other equipment.
