PLANNING COMMISSION REPORT- The Planning Commission had their re-organizational

trees and limbs from recent windstorms. They worked in the shop maintaining the township
equipment. They ran errands for garage supplies and fixed two downed signs.

Zoning Investigations – Nothing

Comprehensive Plan Update – Julie wrote to Mike Brinkash and asked for an update.

Solar Panel Farms – Colin stated that he would go over it again to review and then asked Atty.
Greco if the Board had to then give it to the Planning Commission again for review and was told
yes. Colin is going to attempt to come to the next meeting of the Planning Commission to
discuss this with them. Paula stated that it is important that we get something in place.

Government Funds – Julie received a message from Sam Hallman regarding the, SEC TV
which each Board member has a copy of. The mapping has been done on the western are of
Rockefeller which includes Derr Road, Cider Press Road, Brush Valley Road, Tressler Road,
Wallen Road, Miller Road and Shipman Road as well as several shorter roads extended from the
township ones. The cost for these 13 miles of fiber to the home plan construction is
approximately $572,000. Julie sent a note to Linda Culver asking for an update.

Alarm System – Julie wrote again to Keith Tamborelli (texted) and asked why we still haven’t
gotten a quote. She also sent a message to Clearview Asset Protection in Hughsville for a quote.
(Paula gave her the information.) To date she has heard from neither company. The only one to
give a full quote for both camera’s, video and a new alarm system is A1 Lock. Their total to do
the work is $14,881.67 (this includes a 5% discount). Colin stated that he would still like a
second quote and asked her to call ADT for one.

New F550 Truck Prices – Colin stated that we have the price, and he feels that things are only
going to get more expensive. He asked the Board their thoughts on ordering the new truck. Julie
stated that even if it is ordered now, we most likely will not take delivery of it for about a year.
Colin stated that we will almost have enough to pay for it through the equipment fund. Paula
made a motion to order it from Sunbury Ford Motor (Through CoStars program) and the box
from Bradco. Julie seconded the motion. Motion passed without opposition.

Tyler Karycki/Bill Yost – Property Issue – Paula again stated she believes they have moved
into the home. Atty. Greco is waiting for information from Ed Wenger which was just requested
of him today. Atty. Greco will then write a letter to the Atty. for Karycki.

Covid Guidelines for Employee’s – Colin stated he would let Julie explain but she stated it was
Paula who had concerns. Paula stated that she felt with everything going on we should have
something in our Employee Handbook to deal with Covid and our employees. She stated that if
they are exhibiting symptoms then they should have to be tested before coming into work but
then stated tests are hard to come by now. She said that they should stay home for at least 5 days.
Julie stated that if the tests are hard to come by then it seemed unfair to keep the employee’s
home for perhaps a cold. She stated she is completely in favor of keeping the virus from
spreading and feels something needs to be in place, but she couldn’t agree with just making them
stay home for 5 days if they are not sure they have it. Colin stated that if they are exhibiting
symptoms like a sore throat, coughing, loss of taste and smell then they should stay home for 5
days. There was a lengthy discussion about it, and it was decided that Julie would check with
local businesses, etc.. To see how they are handling it. Julie stated that since we are looking into
this as an addition to the handbook, she felt that it was important that we include that an
employee must have a doctor’s back to work form if returning from a serious illness or surgery
whether it is minor or major. The Board agreed.

Review of and authorization to pay the Solicitor’s bill – Colin made a motion to pay the
Solicitor’s bill. Julie seconded it. Paula Abstained. Motion passed without opposition.

Review of and authorization to pay all bills – Paula made the motion to pay all the bills. Julie
seconded it. Motion passed without opposition.

Review Subdivision Plans for Roger Wiest – The plans were reviewed by the Board of
Supervisors. Roger Wiest was in attendance to answer any questions the Board might have. Julie
made a motion to approve the plans, Paula seconded the motion. Motion passed without
opposition. Julie reminded Atty. Wiest that two copies need to be returned to the township for
our files after they are recorded. He assured her he would send them in the mail.

Other New Business – Colin stated that there had been some questions from a resident with
regards to how we charge for zoning permits. He read aloud from the Municipal Planning Code,
617:3 and it stated that the Board of Supervisors can administer fees to pay for the services being
provided (in this case a zoning permit).

Residents Comments – Nothing.

Motion to Adjourn- Paula made a motion to adjourn the meeting at 6:45 p.m. Julie seconded the
motion. Motion passed without opposition.
