Annual junkyard licenses renewed
The East Huntingdon Township supervisors approved the junkyard license renewal for a few that are located in the township.
The licenses must be renewed annually, and the supervisors granted the renewal to Zelmore Brothers Auto Wreckers, Raygor Salvage and Henderson Foreign Auto Parts.
“We have five junkyards in the township that were in place before we had the ordinance,” Supervisor Paul Hodgkiss said of the ordinance that regulates those types of facilities.
The supervisors also approved modification/construction certificates to William Coen at 20 Coen Mobile Home Park for the construction of a 23-by-30-foot equipment storage building and also to William LaMantia and Denise Blystone at 253 Buckeye Road for the construction of a block foundation and a 30-by-50-foot home.
In regular business, the supervisors also approved the subdivision plan for David and Amy Hixson.
Hodgkiss and fellow supervisors Joel Suter reported they attended a construction conference that covered the planning for the upcoming construction of the new bridge at the intersection area of routes 819 and 119.
Pending the completion of inspections by the sewage inspectors and engineers for the project, the construction may begin in the spring.
Supervisors also reported that they are prepared for the inclement weather that may be hitting the area and staying in out region for the next several weeks.
“We're ready,” Suter said.
Supervisor Howard Keefer said that all the equipment is prepared in case it is needed for road clearance.
“The trucks are all ready,” Keefer said. “They are all fueled up and ready to go if needed.”
