Chairman Brown read a letter from the McKean County Tax Claim Bureau regarding our claim to surplus money from Geoffrey Mincer, 61.80 acres on Dexter Hollow. It didn’t pertain to Liberty Township so nothing needed to be done.
All correspondence was made available to the public. 

OLD BUSINESS: 

PUBLIC CONCERNS:
The Supervisors told Bill Owens (National Fuel) that they had only just received the Agreement between National Fuel and Liberty Township regarding the township working on a Sunday to replace a culvert across Skinner Creek Road so that it would not interfere with access to Skinner Creek Road by National Fuel for their pipeline project. The Supervisors will discuss the Agreement and let National Fuel know if there is anything that they think should be changed.  

Fire Chief Brundage was asked what would happen if someone was burning on their own property and it accidentally went over onto a neighboring property – would the fire department fine the person who was burning? He said not usually –if there was a lot of damage DC&R would have to get involved and then they would fine people because their insurance would be paying the owner of the damaged property. 

As no further business was brought before the Board, the meeting was unanimously adjourned at 8:50 a.m. on a motion by Supervisor Ernst and a second by Supervisor Shepard. 

Respectfully Submitted,
Lucinda Speeth
Secretary/ Treasurer
