Supervisors OK pollution reduction plan with contractor

The Loyalsock Township supervisors met in person on Tuesday to update and approve a Chesapeake Bay pollution reduction plan, approve conditional use public hearings for their next meeting and to approve the hire of new summer employees.

Bill Burdett, township manager updated supervisors on their stormwater plan and contract with HRG, including an amendment on their original pollution reduction plan.

Originally, the township wanted to create this plan with Larson Design Group but there were items within the plan that caused risk to the township including a large upkeep of banks and the plan needed amended to be approved by the state Department of Environmental Protection.
