WHITE TOWNSHIP ADOPTS EMERGENCY OPERATIONS PLAN
Other news: road study does not indicate 25 mph speed limit is in order

11/14/2013

The White Township Supervisors adopted a resolution for an emergency operations plan at last night’s meeting. Should an emergency occur and operations could not continue at the township building on Indian Springs Road, there is a plan in place to move equipment from the property and set up at the S&T Bank Arena.

The results from a week-long speed study on Risinger Road are in. Residents requested a 25 miles per hour speed limit. There is currently no posted limit.  Assistant Township Manager Chris Anderson said according to PennDOT’s formula, the recommended speed is 32 miles per hour and that 25 is not warranted. Since it is a dead-end road, state police would likely not patrol there, according to Township Manager Milt Lady.

In other news from the supervisors' meeting, a backup generator has been installed at the Pleasant View pump station. It was the last pump station to need backup power.

Leaf collection will continue for the next two Mondays. Leaves must be put into approved paper bags and may not include garden waste.
