Springfield Township Supervisors announced Tuesday that Fayette County will be hosting a garbage collection day from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 15, at the Fayette County Fairgrounds for those hard-to-get-rid-of items such as used motor oil, tires and large steel appliances. There will be a cost of $1 for each tire and $2 for all appliances. Other fees may apply.
In other business, the supervisors accepted the bid from Amerikohl Mining for gravel and anti-skid for pothole patching. They also accepted bids from Joyce Oil for fuel and Better Materials for cold patch.
Supervisors approved a motion for Geo Technical to perform geological testing on Hampton Road in the township. According to Supervisor Marshall Clark, the company performs random testing in different municipalities, and will be checking to make sure there are no gas pockets that could be harmful and for other geological things. The testing will more than likely be done in July.
