SOUTH ABINGTON TWP.- South Abington Township has received many complaints about open burning, according to supervisors at their meeting June 10.
“It affects people’s health and they cannot open their windows,” said Supervisor Giles Stanton. The township will contact Carson Helfrich a planning consultant to see how other townships handle open burning.
In other business, resolution 13-4 was voted on and passed, providing an easement with the Abington Heights School District and the sewer project.
Police patrols will increase on Layton Road to the increase of vehicles speeding, according to supervisors.
Jerry Hayes has been hired as a temporary employee. He will drive the ambulance and maintain the grounds at the South Abington Community Park and the township building.
The South Abington Park will close June 16 for sewer project work. Signs will be posted stating that the park is closed.
