DUBOIS – The Sandy Township Supervisors held their regular meeting Monday night.
During the meeting:
- The supervisors approved two zoning changes that were previously pending. The first involved the extension of a commercial zone to completely encompass the Adamson Funeral Chapel properties. Secondly, Elder Cottages were officially made legal in Residential-Agricultural zones on a conditional use permit.
- Citizen John Tapir inquired about a blasting notice that he received from RES Coal for the Corbett property. He told the supervisors that he thought the mining would be dedicated to shallow coal deposits. He asked if anything had changed since the pre-authorization meeting. Zoning Officer Jim Keck explained that the purpose of the notification was to act as a pre-blast survey only, and not for mining itself.
- The supervisors tabled any action in regards to the potential sale of the Sandy Township Municipal Authority. This also included the proposed new fee schedule and extension of a sewer line into the Kiwanis Trail projects.
