House Approves Causer Bill to Authorize Sale of Kane Armory

Legislation sponsored by Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) to authorize the sale of the Kane Armory building and property was unanimously approved by the state House on Monday and now goes to the Senate for its consideration.

House Bill 1787 was introduced at the request of the Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (DMVA) and would authorize the sale of both the armory and the adjacent “weekend training” site at a price to be determined by competitive bid.

“It costs the Commonwealth nearly $10,000 annually to maintain the armory building, which has been vacant now for a few years,” Causer said. “I believe it’s in the best interest of taxpayers to have the property put to productive use and placed on the tax rolls.”

House Bill 1787 authorizes the conveyance (sale) of two separate properties. The first includes the armory building, which is just under 16,000 square feet in size, and a detached three-bay concrete block garage sitting on approximately 0.34 acres. The second property is known as the weekend training site and consists of a fenced compound, large metal storage building and small storage sheds on approximately 1.46 acres.

Causer noted the armory was built in 1922 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. When the property is advertised for bid, it will include an historic preservation covenant approved by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission. The person or entity that purchases the building with the covenant would receive a discount on the property in exchange for the preservation of the building. If the property is not sold in the first round of bidding, the covenant would be removed for the second bid request.

Wolf Administration Announces Project to Provide Drinking Water to 148 Homes and Businesses Affected by Legacy Mining Operations in Clearfield County

On behalf of Governor Tom Wolf, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) today announced funding for an Abandoned Mine Land (AML) project to construct a public waterline to serve 148 homes and businesses with public drinking water.
“The Pine Grove Waterline Project will eliminate health and safety hazards to the community and provide a safe, reliable public drinking water supply,” said DEP Secretary Patrick McDonnell. “Residents here have struggled with diminished water supply and degraded water quality for too long.”

Existing water supplies in the area do not meet minimum state and federal drinking water standards due to impacts of legacy underground and surface coal mine operations. The project will include the construction and installation of a pump station and water storage tank, and construction of approximately 69,300 linear feet of waterline. The tank and pump station will facilitate future expansion of the waterline service.

“This project not only promotes public health by providing safe drinking water to residents, but it also promotes economic development by providing vital infrastructure to support businesses, making future development in the area possible,” said McDonnell.

The Pine Grove Waterline Project is part of the Abandoned Mine Land Reclamation Pilot Program, funded by $30 million from the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSMRE), U.S. Department of Interior. Projects were chosen for their strong potential for combined community, economic, and environmental outcomes.

Joining Secretary McDonnell in discussing the importance of this project at today’s event and touring the waterline route in Lawrence Township, Clearfield County, were United States Congressman Glenn Thompson and representatives from OSMRE, the Foundation for Pennsylvania Watersheds, the Clearfield Municipal Authority, and Bee Kind Winery.
