Connellsville supervisors voted on Thursday on sending four township employees to a required CDL class this month.

Secretary Leah Brothers said the federal government is requiring those township employees or elected officials with a commercial driver's license or those who work with them with a CDL to take the course.

Brothers said they will need to send the four, at a cost of $42 each, for a total cost of $168.

Supervisors unanimously voted in favor of the motion. The employees will attend the training in Upper Tyrone Township on July 21.

The first session deals with CDL probable cause and drug testing. The second session deals with CDL records management.

Supervisors are still looking into the request of Pastor Donald Smith from the World Christian Outreach Church along West Georgia Avenue.

During the board's June meeting, Smith inquired about the church purchasing property owned by the township which has the township playground on it.

The property is located in front of the church. The church wants to expand its parking lot and use the land as a play area.

“The parking gets critical in the wintertime,” Smith said.

Supervisor Chairman Tom Cesario said the township solicitor was sent the information to look into the property's deed to see if it can be sold.
