Road Status Report – The crew worked on pulling ditches with Shamokin Township and Upper
August Township. They also went on a road inspection, removed downed trees from wind/rain
storm, and maintained the township equipment.

Zoning Investigations – Linda Culver phoned Julie on Monday, April 3rd to say she was
receiving a lot of complaints about a property on Beck Road belonging to Kenneth Fultz. Julie
stated that the Board was aware of a driveway he had put in without a permit but that we were
unaware of any of the things she had been told. The entire Board, the crew and our zoning
officer went to the property, viewed it and did not see the things being reported. Our ZEO, Ed
Wenger did send him a letter stating he needs to apply for a driveway permit. Julie wrote a letter
to Linda after their conversation and told her she herself went out and saw nothing of what was
being reported to her (i.e. a school bus being there, animals dying, etc.).
Comprehensive Plan Update – Mike Brinkash is making the corrections.

Government Funds – Nothing new.

Tyler Karycki/Bill Yost – Property Issue -Marty wrote to Julie and stated that he had not heard
back from Atty. Bathgate regarding this matter and stated if he did not hear back from him, he
would issue a Notice of Violation for an unsafe structure because it had NO proper inspections.
Julie wrote to him again on 4/4/23 asking if he sent the violation or heard from the atty. He had
not heard from the attorney so was sending out the NOV. He said he would have a copy of it
sent to Julie as well.

Stormwater Management Ordinance -The Board passed this resolution and Julie sent a copy
to the County per the BOS directive. The Board discussed leaving it in place but working on
their own version of it in the future. Julie asked if they could get a copy of Upper Augusta’s as a

Replace the Furnace – There was discussion about the furnace prices and concerns that they are
not apples for apples. The Board was going to continue to look into it and find out if the quotes
are for the same size furnace.

Amusement Tax – Atty. Greco is working on this.

Hazen Road Turn around – Colin stated that he has to make a date to go out to visit Floyd
Long with Austin and he hasn’t done that yet.

Daniel Renn – Request for Conditional Use – Renn Road – Julie notified Daniel to attend the
meeting. The Board had questions about his business. At the last meeting it was discussed that
there was to be no outside storage of materials except perhaps a small pile of stone. Daniel
attended the meeting and was able to answer the questions the Board posed. He said he is
planning on renting equipment and that would be stored inside. He also stated he will be running
his business through his cell phone and will not have an office on site. There may be an occasion
where he needs to have stone outside. He said all equipment and materials will be stored inside
the garage. The Board stated that if his business grows and he finds he needs to expand on these
conditions, he will need to come back and discuss it with the Board again. Julie is going to write
him a letter, ask for his signature and then when it is returned the Board members will also sign it
and will give him a copy. Colin made a motion to give Daniel Renn a Conditional Use to use his
father’s address for his contracting business and allow him to store equipment and materials in
the building there. Julie seconded the motion. Motion passed without opposition.
