Sandy Twp. Bids Farewell to Two Supervisors

DUBOIS – On Monday night, Sandy Township bid farewell to two supervisors, Dave Sylvis and Andy Shenkle.

Sylvis and Shenkle have served on the board of supervisors since 2002 and 2014, respectively.

Both supervisors praised the great work of the township’s employees within their local community over the years.

The supervisors also held three public hearings prior to the township’s regular board meetings.  The hearings were concerning structures that are possibly facing demolition.

The supervisors voted to allow each property owner until July 15 to either bring their property up to code by repair or removal.

If any owner fails to, it will result in the township demolishing the building and placing a lien against the property.

Two of the three owners were present and advised the supervisors of their plans to have the buildings torn down.

In other business, the supervisors voted, 3-2, to approve the upcoming-year’s budget. Shenkle and Sylvis voted no.

The township’s sewer rate will also be reduced to $18.50 per 1,000 gallons for residential users, and will combine the previous sewer rate and the inflow and infiltration surcharge into a single rate.

The supervisors noted that the new rate will go into effect Jan. 1, and will appear on the first bill that customers will receive in February.
