The Kingston Township Board of Supervisors at its March 13 meeting announced an anticipated completion date of its East Center Street replacement project of April 28, 2013.
“It is something that we will want to celebrate,” said supervisor Jeffrey Box. “It’s been a long road.”
The board also approved a payment of $33,511 towards that project, of which the township’s responsibility will be $6,702.40.
In another matter, Kathleen Sebastian, township manager, read a letter of commendation written by Chief of Police James Balavage, commending Officer Michael Huntzinger for bravery in rescuing two residents at the risk of drowning.
“At one point, he himself went under the ice,” said Box, “but he continued in his effort until he knew everyone was safe.”
In another matter, the board approved a motion to sign an agreement with Pennsylvania Department of Transportation pursuant to a grant of $50,000 directed toward upgrading pedestrian crossing signals.
The board also approved a transfer of $26,670 from its general fund to its state liquid fuel fund, necessitated by the need for additional salt because of winter weather.
A motion to appoint a resident to the Planning Commission to serve a four year term, ending December 2016 was approved.
Sebastian announced her intent to advertise for summer recreation staff which will include a supervisor and several counselors.
The next regular meeting of the Kingston Township Board of Supervisors will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 10.
