Supervisors approve sewer resolution, handicap ramp
The Loyalsock Township supervisors approved resolutions for a sewage planning module for a property on Heim Hill Road and a new handicapped ramp for a property at 1420 Northway Road on Tuesday.
The Heim Hill property is located in an area that is rural and not attached to the public sewer, according to Bill Burdett, township manager.
“Most houses in town attach to a sewer,” he said. “Out in a more rural area, there is no sewer. In order to have a house, you have to have a state-approved, DEP-approved plan — the planning module — to design a system so the wastewater won’t pollute.”
Supervisors Paul Nyman, Virginia Eaton and Richard Wheeland along with Supervisor Chairman Marc Sortman voted “yes” and Supervisor John Bower Jr. abstained.
At the Bernard Kiessling residence on Northway Road, there is a need for a ramp to extend along the driveway, not exceeding any property lines, for handicapped access. The request was unanimously approved by the supervisors.
In other business, the supervisors unanimously approved to send David Carson, building official, to a training for codes updates in the city on Feb. 11 for one day at a cost of $125.
In another matter, the new Center for Healthy Aging, in the community center, is almost completed, according to the recreation and parks department report. The grand opening for the center will be held in March.
The next Loyalsock Township meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 28 at the township building on East Third Street.
