White Township will be getting $130,848 in liquid fuels tax money this year, Township Manager Milt Lady told the supervisors last night. The supervisors must decide how to spend the money, and discussion last night focused on a new tractor/mower and seal coating.
The supervisors also talked about PennDOT's activities in the township this year, including:
- Traffic light sync-up project for 7 different signals, mostly on major corridors.
- The Route 119 Bypass Bridge over Route 110.
- South 6 Street, which will be expanded to three lanes under the 422 overpass. On and off ramps will have their own turning lane in 2015 or 2016.
- Work on Rose Street, which will likely not be until 2018. Lady said that it’s “not where we would like it to be.”
Other topics last night at the supervisors meeting included a call for supporters for pickle-ball courts at Kennedy King Park to follow through on their fundraising pledges. This is part of a $170,000 grant awarded by DCNR. The township is obligated to match $20,000 and $65,000 worth of in-kind services. According to a news release by the Recreation Complex, other amenities include a multi-purpose field, picnic pavilion, and handicapped parking and accessibility.
The next phase of property liens on those who have not paid municipal fees is about to begin. According to Lady, there is currently a list of eight people who will eventually be subject to a sheriff's sale after a writ of execution. The different liens will be consolidated for each person, and action will be taken in order starting with those who owe the most money. There is still about $20,000 in uncollected fees.
