Road Status Report – The crew worked with Upper Augusta and Shamokin Townships to pull
ditches in all three townships. They completed the project. They also ripped and rebuilt part of
Bar, Whities and Hollow Roads. They removed downed trees from Swank and Klinger Roads.
They also opened culverts on Hollow Road. The crew also took the recycling out. They

Floyd about the turnaround. The Board continued to discuss this matter and all three agreed that
Floyd needs to clean up the area so we can again use the turnaround as we are supposed to. Colin

Zoning Investigations – Ed Wenger was given several issues to look at. One Colin sent to him
regarding a property on Clemens Road. He was also given two properties to look at on Overlook
Drive. One of the residents stated he is bringing in junk cars and putting them back on the
property where the township cannot see them. Ed did look at the area and will send an NOV.
Colin also told him that there is a property on Plum Creek Road where the front porch is falling
off the house. Ed was going to check it out as well. There was a discussion about being able to
see properties from above. Colin stated that we need to find out the legality of owning and using
a drone for such issues. Julie was directed to contact Atty. Greco and ask him what the Legality
is of owning and using a drone for things, especially zoning issues.
