Road Status Report – The crew assisted Shamokin Township with a project as well as Upper
Augusta., then Upper helped us with one of ours. The crew worked on Twin Hill Road to
prepare it for Reclamation (the end by Plum Creek Road). The reclaimer came in last Friday, the
work was done, and the crew added more stone, graded and rolled it. The crew went out again
today and rolled it again smoothing out the driveway entrances to the road after Julie received
complaints. Julie met the crew there this morning and did not see an issue. As a matter of fact,
she backed in and drove out of the driveway and had no problems doing so. Julie phoned the
people that complained and spoke with them.

Zoning Investigations – Ed Wenger sent an update to the Board. Each member has a copy.

Comprehensive Plan Update – The Board and the Planning Commission met with Mike
Brinkash last evening, Monday, August 8, 2022, at 6 p.m. to go over the updates for the
Comprehensive Plan. We will have to discuss finding a resident to be a part of the meetings
when we start updating the zoning portion of the Codification.

Augusta, and Rockefeller) will be billed for their portion. Colin does not believe it will be more
than $1,000. A piece.

Julie was directed to advertise it in the Daily Item for adoption on September 13, 2022.

Monthly schedule for ZHB – Atty. Best resigned as the Zoning Hearing Board attorney because
of his schedule. The Board discussed having Atty. Mike Gregorowicz as the new Zoning
Hearing Board attorney since he handled the Webb hearing so professionally. Colin made a

seconded the motion. Motion passed without opposition.
