Supervisor Meeting Minutes – June 19, 2018

The Morris Township Board of Supervisors met at the township office for their regular scheduled meeting.  Present were Supervisors Rob Sanders, Dave Dietrich, Doug Smith, Zoning Officer Bob Sanders and Greene County Regional Police Chief Zach Sams. 

Chairman Sanders called the meeting to order at 7:30 P.M.  Minutes of the previous meeting were read.  Secretary had one correction, it was omitted that at the previous supervisors meeting of Tuesday June 5, a motion by Sanders and a second by Smith was made to transfer ownership of the former municipal building and parcel (473 Sparta Road) to the Morris Township Volunteer Fire Department of Washington County by deed.  Motion by Sanders, second by Dietrich to approve the minutes as corrected. 

In old business, regarding the dilapidated Hathaway property, the township received one written quote for demolition of the property from DR Construction and the township is still waiting for another quote from APEX Pipe and Earth Excavation.  Township will wait until next meeting to review quotes as the township is still waiting on a written quote from APEX.

Moreland Vault Service still has not reimbursed Morris Township in the amount of $650.00 which is the amount paid to have two veteran’s names etched on the Vietnam Marker.   Discussion ensued.

Sherry Stevenson, owner of Squeaky Clean cleaning service completed the first cleaning.  She will be back to clean one time each month.  The windows will need done next time she is here.

Township is still waiting on response from Penn DOT regarding township’s request to have No Engine Brake signs placed on Conger Road near Bob and Karen Metz home located at 465 Conger Road, and also, waiting for an answer if a hidden driveway sign can be placed in the north bound direction of Prosperity Pike, near the Upper Ten Mile Church Lane.

Police Chief Zach Sams had a police activity report from January through June 18, 2018.  He said they are working at getting all the info on one report instead of divided up on many different pages.  After reviewing the report, Dietrich stated that 19 citations in 6 months didn’t seem very high as there were times in 2017 when there were 18 citations in one month.  Much discussion ensued.

There is a need to have Orkin spray for springtail bugs that are entering the building due to the damp ground.  Orkin will complete an initial spray for $135.00 and then next year will return to spray seasonally from April until September. 

Motion by Dietrich, second by Smith to review and pay bills.  Motion by Sanders, second by Smith to adjourn.   Meeting adjourned at 8:35 P.M.

Respectfully submitted,

Kathy Lesnock, Secretary
