LUTHERSBURG — Plans for the April Brady Township Supervisors’ meeting took up much of the time at the March meeting. The supervisors plan to hold an Open House on Wednesday, April 11, from 9:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. During that time the Township Building will be open to the public and township equipment will be on display.
At 2 p.m. that day the supervisors will hold their monthly meeting and they are looking into having students from the DuBois Area High School take part in that meeting. If the students participate they will be allowed to conduct the meeting up until the time when actual votes are taken, at which time the elected officials will vote on motions. Part of that meeting will involve opening the bids for road work materials as well as other routine business.
The volunteer fire company will also have the fire station open and its equipment will be on display, and the Park and Recreation Board will take part as well. The public will be invited to attend all or part of the day in an effort to showcase how township government works and what it does in the community.
Sewage project continues
The supervisors also announced they are going to add to the list of approved contractors for the upcoming sewage project. Any contractor in the area who is interested in being added to the list is asked to call the township building at 583-7660, or the township engineer at (814) 765 7541, ex. 215. The supervisors are still waiting for the last few details to be approved, but they expect the work to begin soon, with the first hookups planned for late June or early July.
There will be two more meetings for that project, one for the public and one for contractors with the dates and times to be announced. Chairman Charlie Muth explained that the public meeting is important since county representatives will be on hand to discuss possible Community Development Block Grant money that may help local homeowners with their cost of the hookup.
Eagle Scout projects approved
Two Boy Scouts were present at the meeting to get permission to work on their Eagle Scout projects at the community ball field. David Smith will work on building a cement pad in the dugout area and Joey Weber plans to build a cement pad inside the concession stand. Both boys will also work on building cement pads in other areas around the ball field. The supervisors commended the boys on their initiative and gave their permission for the work.
Fire Department report
Russ Perks reported the volunteer fire company responded to 11 calls in February, both in Brady Township and surrounding municipalities. He also said the fire company had voted to offer the tanker truck they purchased from the township last year back to the township. He said that after much discussion the fire company had decided their needs could best be served by another type of vehicle. The supervisors voted to accept the truck.
The supervisors also voted to advertise for bids on road materials that will be opened at the Open House meeting in April. Those bids will be for: 16,000 gallons of E10/E12 oil, 25,000 gallons of E2/E3 oil, 6,000 gallons E4/E5 oil, 2,000 tons of 2RC limestone, 2,000 tons of 1/4 inch washed limestone and 1,000 tons of unwashed limestone, with all stone to be delivered to the work site. Supervisor Bryan Hartzfelf said the township plans to seal coat seven or eight miles of roads and pave one-half mile.
Secretary Sheri DeBoer will apply for $5,643 of County Aid which will be used for drain pipes on the roads. She will also order 100 tons of road salt for the 2018-19 season. DeBoer also announced that the Spring Convention of Clearfield County officials will be held at the Community Building on May 4.
Before the other discussions and actions took place, Muth swore in a new fire policeman. Robert Deason was sworn in and will join the established corps of fire police.
