Old Lycoming Township votes to replace solicitor

Old Lycoming Township Supervisors voted to replace its current solicitor in anticipation of her assuming responsibilities as a magisterial district judge following this fall’s election.

Scott T. Williams will replace Denise Dieter, who is running unopposed to become Jersey Shore’s next magisterial district judge.

In other news, the township supervisors unanimously voted to open a new bank account with Citizen’s Bank to store federal funds it is receiving through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.

The Sun-Gazette previously reported Old Lycoming Township would receive $485,442 through the plan.

Chris Kriner, Old Lycoming Township police chief, reminded those in attendance that Old Lycoming Township’s National Night Out would occur Aug. 3 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Fairlawn Community Church.

“It’s going to be important this year because it was cancelled last year,” Kriner said. “It’s a community event that brings kids and families together.”

Kriner explained National Night Out gives police officers an opportunity to connect with the community — and vice-versa.

The supervisors also approved a memorandum of understanding that designated Lycoming County as the agent to administer flood acquisition properties.

Additionally, through a resolution, it approved Kelsey Green, Lycoming County hazard reduction planner, as the township’s hazard mitigation planner.

Township supervisors also appointed David Masden and Don Slout to the Township’s Zoning Hearing Board through two more resolutions.

The township supervisors approved a subdivision of a property on Lowmiller Road, a conditional use of a property on Ravine Drive and a land development permit for Lycoming Creek Road.

The Old Lycoming Township Supervisors will next meet Aug. 10 at 7 p.m. in the township’s municipal building.
