The Brush Valley Township supervisors on Monday agreed to apply for a $4,517 dirt-and-gravel road grant for a project on Old Mission Road. The township plans to provide in-kind contributions of equipment and labor worth $1,767.30.

The supervisors approved purchase of: a portable radio from Staley Communication costing $1,466.80; a 60-gallon 5 HP air compressor from Tractor Supply, $649.99; and a Dewalt tool combo kit and 4.5-inch grinder from Lowe's at a combined cost of $318.

Representing the township on Indiana County's tax collection committee will be: Robin Brilhart, delegate; Michele Papakie, first alternate; and David Overdorff, second alternate.

The township is renewing its annual Historical and Genealogical Society membership at a cost of $60.

During the supervisors' reorganization, David Overdorff was elected chairman for 2014 and Samuel Kerr was named vice chairman.

Papakie was approved as treasurer, with a bond set at $500,000. Brilhart will continue as the township secretary.

Other township officials include: Tom Wallace, vacancy board member; Scott Overdorff, roadmaster; William Shulick, solicitor; and Robert A. Ofman, emergency management coordinator.

Gloria Mitchell will collect delinquent per capita and occupation taxes and taxes due under the Local Tax Enabling Act, including wage taxes only for years prior to 2012. Travel reimbursement was set at 56 cents per mile for 2014, the IRS rate.

The supervisors will hold regular meetings at the Brush Valley fire hall — at 7 p.m. on the first Monday of each month, on the first Tuesday in September.
