Mt. Pleasant Twp. finishes scheduled road work
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.
