Zoning Investigations – Ed Wenger would like the Board to go by Ernie Houdeshell’s property
and give their thoughts on if he should cite him. He feels that Mr. Houdeshell is not cleaning up
as he is supposed to. Neighbors of Dean Buck have lodged complains against him and letter
were sent to him to also clean up his property. The situation on Airport Road with the Property
Maintenance Code has been resolved. Ed has also written to the owner of the Compressor
Business at the end of Plum Creek and gave him a warning. The Board discussed the issues and
stated that they are ok with Ed citing them again.

with Linda Culver’s office and Sam Hallman.

Agreement with Statewide Tax – Renewal 03/23 – Paula stated that she would like to see

Earned Income tax and Statewide Tax is no longer in the Sunbury Area. The Board discussed it
and Paula stated that at the last TCC meeting the Keystone Representative stated that they are
already doing this for several of the TCC members. Julie was directed to keep this on the agenda
to be dealt with in November of 2022. Paula stated they give a better rate.
Other New Business – Chuck Yeager – Chuck Yeager wrote the Board a letter requesting a
Conditional Use for having a second driveway. He already presented it to the Planning
