and the cans to Stone Metal. Larry informed Julie that the Belt loader is getting work done to it
(jointly owned with other townships). The crew put up several downed signs in the township.

driveway coming off of Heim Road for his and his wife’s personal vehiciles. He wants to turn
their garage into a studio and will need that driveway for clients. There was some discussion.
Julie had Mike Brinkash (Engineer) go by the property and look at where Chuck wants to put it.
He stated that it should be allowed. Julie provided his email to the Board members so they could
review Mike’s findings. Atty. Greco stated that you are not allowed two driveways on one
property in the township so Mr. Yeager would have to follow the rules per the ordinance which
may include getting a variance.

Paula – Paula stated that she is completely against any closure of Plum Creek Road for Spyglass
Winery events. The other two Board members agreed. There was discussion. It was decided
that the Board would have Julie contact Penn DOT (write a letter), stating that we oppose any

away with her family. He reminded the Board that when she went away the previous October she
spent many days working and dealing with issues because of the Webb law suit and it wasn’t fair
to her on her vacation. He told her to turn off her phone and to have all calls directed to him and
Paula for the next week and he wanted her to put the same on the answering machine. Julie
thanked him.
