UNFINISHED BUSINESS

Road Status Report – The crew started to work on the roads for the spring season – grading
several of our dirt roads and adding stone to them, they also had to plow and cinder from last
week’s snowstorm. They maintain the township equipment daily and assisted in preparing the
building for the Rabies Clinic held this past weekend. Colin asked Julie to speak with Larry
about the Fog Seal and to find out how long a road must be closed for it to ‘cure.’

Zoning Investigations – Julie received a phone call from a woman complaining about a resident
burning at all hours of the night and playing loud music into the early morning hours. She has
received a concern from another resident about this same individual. She contacted Ed Wenger
and he wrote a letter to the property owner letting them know that they must abide by township
ordinance regarding the same.
Comprehensive Plan Update – The Board met with Mike Brinkash this afternoon. We went
over the plan, will be proof reading it then will give to the Planning Commission, hopefully by
June 6, 2022. On July 11th , we hope to have their comments back and then it will go to County.
Once this process has been completed, we will set up a public hearing.

Government Funds – Julie was finally able to complete the report fot he State that is required to
be done by April 30, 2022.

Alarm System – The cameras were installed, and we are still waiting on the alarm system. The
parts on are order but have yet to arrive.

Tyler Karycki/Bill Yost – Property Issue – We have heard nothing. The Board agreed to have
Julie contact our solicitor and ask him to reach out to Atty. Bathgate; solicitor for Karycki.

Covid Guidelines for Employee’s – Nothing at this time.

Rabies Clinic – The Rabies Clinic was held this past Saturday and they serviced 70 animals.
They contacted Julie and thanked the Board for allowing them to use the building and thanked
Austin for assisting with opening and closing.

Conrad Road Issue – Culvert/Clark Driveway – The box has arrived for this project but the
crew need to coordinate things with the Clark’s and to put it on their work schedule.

Purchase new Broom for Loader – The crew got prices for a new broom. The other one was
purchased in mid-1990’s. The new broom will cost $8,559.25 and this is State Pricing from
BS&B. Colin made a motion to purchase the broom. Paula seconded the motion. Motion passed
without opposition.

Letter to PennDOT about closing Plum Creek Road for Spyglass Winery Events – The
Board instructed Julie to write a letter to Penn DOT at the last meeting stating that we are against
road closures for the events. Julie contacted PennDOT and was referred to Dale Wolfe. She
wore to Mr. Wolfe and explained that Mr. Webb has stated he will be closing the road. She
wanted to know who to direct the letter to from the Board opposing the closures. Mr. Wolfe
wrote her and stated that he (Webb) is not allowed to close the road without prior authorization
from PennDOT and that this has not been given nor has Webb applied for it. Julie was directed
to write back and ask what the recourse is if he does close it without permission; she is waiting to
hear from him. The question came up during the Board meeting since he has closed it several
times before, did he in fact not have permission?

NEW BUSINESS

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

Other New Business – There will be a meeting this Thursday night at 6:30 for the Zoning
Hearing Board to announce their decision on the Webb vs. Township issue on being cited for
having camping when he has not requested a Special Exception. Colin told Julie to put an
Executive Session on our next Agenda so we can discuss this with our solicitor.

Residents Comments – Nothing

Motion to Adjourn- Paula made a motion to adjourn the meeting at 6:21 p.m. Julie seconded the
motion. Motion passed without opposition.
