Sandy Supers Hear Complaints, Discuss Clean-up Event

DUBOIS – Supervisor Mark Sullivan relayed complaints that he’s received about speeding motorists on Home Camp Road between the trailer park and Rockton Road during Monday night’s meeting of the Sandy Township Supervisors.  Police Chief Don Routch said he’d inform his officers.

Sullivan also asked Sandy Township Manager Dave Monella to look into whether or not the tax collector works within a public building.  Sullivan stated that there were reports she has been smoking in her office, and smoking is forbidden in public buildings.

Pamela August asked the supervisors to hang up a poster she created for her clean-up event on May 3. The supervisors will assist her in finding a way to dispose of garbage collected during the event.  It was stated that they’ll look into either using PennDOT, or tying it into Sandy Township’s clean-up program on May 16-17.

Sandy Township’s clean-up will start at 7 a.m. on each day; it will end at 4 p.m. May 16 and 12 p.m. May 17.  The township will take electronics, four tires per person, appliances and other items.

Monella, when asked by August, stated that the township crews will continue to clean up along Pentz Run, when they are able to.  He’ll be sending out bids for mile-long stretches that will require more specialized and heavier equipment.

The township also approved Pennsafe Building Inspection Services to be its inspector for considering buildings that are too dangerous or dilapidated to remain standing.  Part of the duties will be to report in hearings on the structural soundness of a building when seeking demolition.

Supervisor Dave Sylvis extended thanks to former Township Manager Dick Castonguay for his work to bring the WhiteWave Foods factory to Sandy Township.
