This year, thus far, the new supervisors of Madison Township (Clarion County) have donated countless hours to the township, putting the funds back into the roads for much needed repairs.

Payroll is $56,000, which is half of what it was last year. Provided we have a mild winter, the payroll will be $35,000 less. We have eliminated the health care which has put $60,000 per year back into the roads. The township received $18,208 from a county aid grant to seal coat roads. We have used 219.47 tons of cold patch just to repair potholes. The township has replaced 39 cross drains, ditched Rider Road, Fidler, Lawsonham, Wild Cat Church Road, and Hawk Hill Road.

Elections are right around the corner and I hope that people have taken notice of the changes within our township. These changes have been made possible with the help of appointed supervisor Scott Earley. He has donated countless hours to the township. He has attended classes for road repairs, several meetings with county emergency officials and the PennDOT coordinator, as well as attending Rimersburg Municipal Authority meetings. We need Scott to keep the ball rolling in the right direction for the Madison Township taxpayers.
