UNFINISHED BUSINESS

Road Status Report -The crew measured roads for the subcontracted seal coat work and
amesite work. They cleaned up from Storm damage. They worked on the township equipment,
worked in the shop, and ran errands for the garage. They also marked the area where the
propane tank will be installed.

Zoning Investigations – The Board received a complaint from resident Maggie Ross requesting
assistance for the neighbor who continues to play loud music all times of the day and night. She
stated that she has contacted the State Policy without their help. Julie wrote and told her that she
had sent every complaint to the Zoning Officer, Ed Wenger, and he has done all he can with the
ordinances we have. She also stated that they have garbage laying around the property. This too
has been addressed by Ed Wenger and the garbage was removed at that time. This is an ongoing
issue. She stated they are burning at all times of the night. She suggested the Board look at their
ordinances when they review the zoning ordinance and regulations in their upcoming meetings.
Ed had sent a letter to Mr. and Mrs. Kemper on Captain Bloom Road about a motor home/travel
trailer that has been sitting on their property. Concerns were lodged with the township that
someone is living in it. They responded to Ed Wenger’s letter stating that there is no one living
there, and they will be getting rid of it this spring.

Government Funds – Nothing more at this time.

Tyler Karycki/Bill Yost – Property Issue – Julie received a message from a resident that they
are concerned that sewage is coming from that property and going into the ditch along the road.
Julie drove to the site and took pictures to show the other Board members. There was some
discussion and it was agreed that she should contact Gil to investigate. The situation with their
septic has been ongoing.

Stormwater Management Ordinance -Atty. Greco is going to prepare something for the next
meeting. A fee schedule will need to be created.

Hazen Road Turn around – Mark Hassinger – Julie spoke with On-the-Fly Aerial Company
and they will be setting up a date with her to go out and do the work. She also spoke to Mark
Hassinger and received his permission for the company to access his property to set off the
drone. Julie is going to coordinate it so that Austin can be there when the drone is set off.

Solar Farm – Nothing more currently.

Road Bonding – Colin will speak to Barry about it when he sees him at the next COG meeting.
Colin asked Julie to send him a reminder. Julie stated she would reach out to Barry and tell him
that Colin wanted to have a conversation with him about this.

Generator and Propane Tank -Julie spoke to Curtis again at Light-Heigle and he said he
misunderstood and didn’t realize it was for the township. We WILL need a PA UCC permit as
well as a zoning permit. Julie will start working on them. The crew marked out an area in the
back yard to place the propane tank. She asked if Colin and Kyler looked at it. Colin stated he
had, and it looked fine. Julie stated that the cost to pour the concrete pad for both the propane
tank and the generator as well as creating bollards to go around both sites will be approximately
$2500. Colin made a motion that we have the crew get the items and do the work. Skyler
seconded it. Motion passed without opposition.

Comfort Road Fire Training – 104 Comfort Road – Julie finally received all the paperwork
from the Fire Company, and she copied it for the Board as well as Atty. Greco. Julie will send a
note to Jay Long, Asst. Chief to let him know everything is ok for them to move forward.

Jarrett Road – Mike was going to forward the information to his team to get a price for us
which Skyler requested from Julie. In the meantime, they will start working on it.

Spring Road Inspection – March 18th at 3 PM is the next Road inspection. The Board and
Crew will eat dinner together and then immediately following it we will have an employee
meeting. Julie said once the inspection is finished, they will know better if the numbers they
have for the upcoming road work are accurate.

Possible Claim from Loss of Power/Generator Arc – Julie received the check from the
insurance company in the amount of $239.35. It has already been deposited into the bank. The
adjuster told her to contact him if anything else were to go bad in the next few weeks.

Clemens Road Bridge – Julie spoke to Mike Brinkash regarding the information. The Board
needs to discuss having a meeting with Mike and the engineer from Wilson Engineering. We
