ADOPT the BUDGET for 2023 – The Budget was properly advertised and ready to be voted
on. Colin thanked Julie for creating it. Colin asked the audience if they had any questions; there
were none. Paula made a motion to adopt the budget for 2023. Julie seconded the motion.
Motion passed without opposition.


Road Status Report – The crew worked with Shamokin and Upper Augusta Townships on
some of their larger projects, they took the aluminum cans out for recycling, ran for fuel filters
and supplies for the garage and continued to maintain the equipment. The line painting company
came and painted the lines on Seven Points Road. Colin said he thought they did an excellent
job and that the work was better than PennDOT’s work on Brush Valley Road. Julie spoke with
the man who is repairing the actuary lights and he stated that the wire under the road is causing
the problem and needs replaced. The Board discussed this and said that they will just let the
lights flash at this point because Seven Points Road was just seal coated and fog sealed and we
do not want it ripped up. Keeping the lights flashing is not going to cause any issues.
Zoning Investigations – Julie stated that a resident came into her office and shared concerns that
a property on Brush Valley Road owned by the Sinsel’s now has a travel Trailer on it and it
appears they hooked large propane tanks up to it and put skirting around the bottom of it. Ed was
contacted to check it out and make sure no one is living in it.

Comprehensive Plan Update – Julie contacted Mike Brinkash. He said he is putting together
the proofed copies and will get them to her for the Board.

Government Funds – Julie stated that the agreement was sent to Sam Hallman for signature and
has not been returned. Colin asked if they are going to want the entire $200,000 in one payment
or if we are able to pay ½ now and ½ when they finish. Julie will write to Sam and ask him.

Tyler Karycki/Bill Yost – Property Issue -Nothing new

Agreement with Statewide Tax – Renewal 03/23 – Julie said that she received the certified card
back from Statewide so they did receive it. Colin stated we must remember to appoint Keystone
during our Re Organizational meeting in January.

him. She will write him again.

member a copy. The Board directed Julie to send it out to Melody for her signature.

Alternate for Zoning Hearing Board – The Board happily announced they have an alternate
Zoning Hearing Board member, Sam Cohen. He has agreed to step in when needed. He attended
the last ZHB meeting, October 20th to see how things were done. This can be taken off the

Budget for 2022 – Julie advertised the budget in the Daily Item. It has been adopted. It can be
taken off the agenda.

Auditor to replace Melody Hayner – The Board discussed still needing an auditor to replace
Melody. Julie said she was thinking of reaching out to Betty ‘Sam’ Reed and asked the Board
their thoughts. They agreed she should contact her. If she is not able to do it then we will need to
contact Mike Brockman, Vacancy Board chair and have a meeting with him.
