OPEN TO THE FLOOR

 

Ed Alexatos, Resident, questioned the board on the Big “I” Round-a-Bout being planned by PennDOT and what they were going to do about it – as explained before, this is a PennDOT Intersection and the Round-a-Bout will be constructed by them.  Then he questioned why the Township Supervisors did nothing to assist VTVFD to keep them from losing the truck – again it was explained that the Supervisors donate to both Fire Departments and do not micro manage their funds.

 

 

 

Hugh King, Resident, questioned the board on the Budget for 2018 and wanted to make sure this board utilizes the money wisely.  The board assured they have the citizens best interest for the 2018 budget and the management transition has been in place this year and going well.
