District 2 voters will cast ballots at new location
SCOTTDALE - Upper Tyrone Township voters in District 2 will cast their ballots at the township building's garage on Nov. 6.
The former site for District 2 elections, the Community Building across from Hickory Square Church, has been closed, and no alternative has been found in that area for the upcoming election.
District 2 voters cannot join District 1 in the township building, since regulations state that a physical barrier must separate voters of different districts.
The move is temporary until another location in District 2 is secured, or the decision to redistrict and merge the two Upper Tyrone Districts is made. Redistricting cannot occur prior to April 2002.
Voters in District 2 will receive notification of the change in polling place.
Comments from residents at Tuesday night's supervisors' meeting focused on township police officer Roger Adams' schedule.
Upper Tyrone Township resident Edwin Zaffina asked supervisors if Adams would schedule more evening hours, a request Zaffina and other residents have made in previous months.
Several residents at the meeting requested that the township set Adam's hours instead of allowing him to keep his own schedule, and direct Adams to focus on speeding and other traffic violations in the township.
Supervisor Jack Fullem said he would arrange for Adams to meet these requests. Residents also asked that a phone number be available where Adams can be reached when needed.
Regarding recycling in the township, a collection bin is now located in the township building's parking lot. Newspapers, glass, metal cans, and No. 1 and No. 2 plastics will be accepted at this location.
