Eaton Township supervisors provided an update last Tuesday (May 7) on upcoming road work.
Supervisors plan to prioritize road work in Eaton Hills, Frear Hill, Dymond Terrace and more.
“It looks like before Memorial Day we’ll be doing all our planned roadwork that we talked about in the last meeting,” he said. “We’ll do two phases, the tar and chip and then maybe a week or two later, they’ll be putting a sealer on top of it.”
Supervisors also moved to purchase a new truck, plow, spreader and box.
Rowker spoke about the recent Great American Cleanup and thanked resident Jessica Coolbaugh for sponsoring it.
Vice chairman Abe Kukuchka said the supervisors accepted an insurance coverage bid from Kilmer.
“We get a percentage back of what we spent, so hopefully we get somewhere between $3-4,000 back,” Kukuchka said.
Recently, Kukuchka attended a Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors conference, where he sat in on a Department of Conservation and Natural Resources seminar about getting grants for small projects, parks or trails.
“Depending on what we do with the FEMA buyout of the old Stagecoach Hotel, it kind of depends on the whole park situation,” he said. “It’s moving along slowly.”
Rowker and floodplain administrator Jere Woods recently met with a representative of FEMA. They asked him to provide an update on the status of the buyout and put it on a priority list.
“He said he would get back to us,” Rowker said.
