Old Lycoming Township to select new police chief

The Old Lycoming Township Supervisors will swear in the next township police chief at their May 7 meeting, the supervisors announced at a meeting earlier this week.

The new chief will replace Joe Hope, the former police chief who retired at the end of March.

In other news, the township extended its COVID-19 emergency declaration by 90 days to July 2, 2021.

The township received three aggregate bids from Iola Lumber, Glenn O. Hawbaker and Hanson Aggregates for stone purchases throughout the next year. The supervisors are in the process of reviewing the bids and will award the contract to the lowest bidder at May’s meeting.

On the recommendation of the township’s planning commission, supervisors Linda Mazullo and Sam Aungst approved fellow supervisor David Shirn’s subdivision request.

The township approved two bids on items they placed on Municibid, an online auction site for schools and governments.

The supervisors accepted the bid on its 2015 Hustler Super 104 zero-turn mower for $9,856, and the bid on its grater attachment for a Bobcat skid steer for $10,075.

Shirn transferred a little more than one acre to neighbors Mitchell Evans and Lauren Franco, and abstained from the vote.

The supervisors also approved a resolution for the township to apply for $5,511 of liquid fuel funds from the county.

The supervisors will next meet May 7 at 7 p.m.
