KINGSTON TWP. — Resident Joanie Hine, of Holcomb Road, told the supervisors on Wednesday night about excessive water and debris coming into her area during rainstorms.

Hine said she called the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation during several rainstorms, including the most recent one, because of a concern for safety on the roadway. She said the water was coming from Pioneer Avenue.

“My question is: What can be done?” said Hine.

Board Chairman Jeffrey Box assured Hine township engineers would be assessing the situation and examining options for permanent repairs.

Phil Navicki, of Bunker Hill Road, also addressed the board with concerns regarding excessive water on township roadways during recent storms, requesting installation of a catch basin or storm drain near his home.

Box assured Navicki the township would assess the situation and obtain funding to “do it right.”

In another matter, the supervisors approved an ordinance retaining Comcast Cable Co. as township non-exclusive cable provider. Township Manager Kathleen Sebastian said the contract with Comcast offered significant benefits.

In approving a motion to accept receipt of the 2012 independent audit by Bonita & Rainey Accounting, Box noted no irregularities in that audit, saying it was “all clear.”

The board approved the request of Aqua Pennsylvania to perform a water main replacement project on Meadowcrest, Clearview, Skyline and Carverton roads, including the installation of five new fire hydrants as determined by the Trucksville fire chief.

The next regular meeting of the supervisors will be on Aug. 14 at 7:30 p.m.
