All correspondence was made available to the public.

NEW BUSINESS:

None

OLD BUSINESS:

Chairman Brown said that E&M Engineers is done with the 35 acres surveyed on Rt. 155 for Liberty Township and is now surveying the acreage owned by Liberty Township on Brooklynside.

Chairman Brown said that the tar and chipping on Lillibridge Creek Road and Campbell Hollow will begin on Thursday, July 12, 2018 at 7 AM and the tar and chipping on Lower Portage and Upper Grimes will begin on Friday, July 13, 2018 at 7AM. It is asked that people please find alternate routes of travel if possible.

Chairman Brown said that as far as the work on the Upper Portage Bridge he would like to leave the pillars in and then drop back approximately 5 feet and pour a concrete pad on each side of the bridge. The bridge will then rest on them and there will be a clearance of 1 ½ inches from the old pillars. This plan is OK with Derek Miller, the state engineer. We will use the Act 13 money of $37,000.00 that we have already qualified for and then reapply for another $100,000.00 for more bridge repairs.

PUBLIC CONCERNS:

Buck McGarvey wondered if they had gotten permits for demolishing/building on the Marietta Evens property. He said there was asbestos in the house that was torn down. Chairman Brown said they got a demolition permit and that the DEP had checked and the asbestos had a concrete covering so it was OK. As far as the tires were concerned, Chris from DEP said she had checked with the landfill and there was paperwork to show that there were tires taken over there and legally disposed of. They did not get a building permit however.

Matt and Paula Wilson and Cliff and Connie Frederick were at the meeting to register a complaint about the horrible condition of Pump Station Road. Chairman Brown and the other Supervisors agreed with them that the road was in very bad shape. Chairman Brown told them that in May the township had applied for a grant for $225,000 to fix the road and we are just waiting to see if we will get it. The work could not be done until 2019 so in the meantime the township is going to remove the clay and change the worst part of the road to dirt before the end of August and apply for a different grant of $45,000 from Dirt & Gravel Roads to fix at least that part.

As no further business was brought before the Board, the meeting was unanimously adjourned at 6:35p.m. on a motion by Supervisor Ernst and a second by Supervisor Shepard.

Respectfully Submitted,

Lucinda Speeth
Secretary/ Treasurer
