Mt. Pleasant Township supervisors reported that despite rainy weather, all scheduled road work for the summer has been completed.

“We're done with the scheduled roads, and we're waiting on the outcome of the sewage authority with their road bonds in the other areas that need work,” Supervisor Duane Hutter said on Monday.

Supervisor Jack Rutkowski said, of the $185,737 in bills approved at the meeting, $100,298.84 was for oil used to oil and chip roads. In addition, $33,278 was paid out for property and equipment insurances.

Supervisors approved a $1,000 donation to the Mt. Pleasant Public Library.

“It's a donation we make each year, and it is important because the people in our township utilize the library,” Chairman Frank Puskar said.

Supervisors also approved a continuation agreement with GH Harris Associates Inc. for the collection of delinquent 2012 township per capita taxes.

“The money they collect comes back to the community and helps cover operating costs,” Hutter said.

Residents were reminded that because of the Labor Day holiday, the next recycling date will be Sept. 6.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
