KINGSTON TWP. — The Board of Supervisors approved Aqua Pennsylvania’s water main replacement projects on Old Carverton and Harris Hill Roads on Wednesday night.

Also approved was an agreement with the state Department of Environmental Protection for the Luzerne Conservation District to restore 200 feet of stream bank on Toby’s Creek along South Main Street.

The board authorized Township Manager Kathleen Sebastian to apply for grant funding through the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources for park revitalization, with township contributions not to exceed $60,000.

The board also approved debt service payment for a 2010 bond issue, interest only, in the amount of $9,221.

Member Shirley Moyer was named as voting delegate at the upcoming Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors Conference in April.

Winners of the 2013 holiday house contest were announced and presented with Lowe’s gift cards. Darren and Tracey Ford, of Maple Leaf Road, took top honors.

Rich Wydra, chairman of the Recreation Commission, said the contest was a wonderful way to celebrate the holidays and reinforce a spirit of community.

Sebastian said although the contest has been suspended for 2014 because of lack of resident interest, she looks forward to resuming it again in the future.

The next regular meeting of the board will be at 7:30 p.m. March 12.
