JACKSON TWP. -- Resident Sharon Ellsworth expressed her continued concern over drainage issues on Timbergrove Road at the township supervisors meeting on Monday evening.

Ellsworth has been fighting for a resolution of the problem for almost 10 years. A meeting is scheduled this morning with the township supervisors, Ellsworth and the proper utilities' representatives to discuss what can be done to correct the situation.

Ellsworth said she is particularly concerned about large rocks washing down onto her property and the potential for damage.

In the resident comment portion of the meeting, resident Mary Dockeray asked that a summary of the township bills be included in the board meetings so the taxpayers can know what is being paid out each month.

She also asked that the information discussed at the compost meetings in Exeter be addressed at the board meetings as well.

Township Supervisor Tim Evans said the information in question is available anytime at the township office, but the board would take the suggestion under consideration.

The board approved the yearly update to the SCI-Dallas prison emergency plan, and approved the solicitor to draft a new flood plain ordinance as required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

It also authorized the advertisement for a part-time police officer in the township.

Ellsworth also said the recent police reports are not available online. Evans thanked her for the information and agreed to look into it.
