The Franklin Township Regular Monthly Meeting was held in the Township’s Municipal Building on Tuesday, July 3rd.  The meeting was called to order by Chairperson Mark Creamer at 7:02 P.M.  Present at the meeting were the Chairperson, Supervisor Lee Burch and the Secretary/Treasurer.  Also present were the people on the attached sign-in list.

 

The meeting started with the pledge to the flag.

 

The minutes for the previous meeting were read.  Mark made a motion to accept the minutes with one

correction.  The previous month was changed from May to June.  Lee seconded the motion.  The motion

passed with 2 yes votes.

 

The Treasurer’s Report was read.  Mark made a motion to accept the report.  Lee seconded the motion.  The motion passed with 2 yes votes. 

 

Correspondence:

COG sent a pole barn permit for Richard Phillips. 

 

The PA Dept. of Environmental Protection sent a copy of a Bluestone Small Non-coal Mining Permit granted to Northeast Stone Works for Roszel #2 Quarry Operation. 

 

The Supervisors received and Act 14 Notification for Well Drilling or Alterations for the Buxbaum well pad in Franklin Township.

 

An Act 14 Notification of Well Drilling or Alterations was received from WPX for the Shafer pad in Liberty Township.

 

An Act 14 Notification of Well Drilling or Alterations was received from WPX for the Moore pad in Silver Lake Township.

 

SWN sent an Act 14 Notification for the Scott pad in New Milford Township.

 

Act 14 Notifications of Well Drilling or Alterations were received from WPX for both the Wheeler pad and the Thomas Conaty pad in Silver Lake Township.

 

The Susquehanna County Dept. of Planning and Development sent notification that WPX has submitted a plan for a compressor station that will be located on the Philip and Michele Depue property.

 

The newspaper notice was not published in time for the Township to withdraw from COG this month.  Another notice will be published in the Montrose Independent with August as the tentative month of termination. A notice will also be mailed with the tax bills about contact information for the new building and sewer inspectors.  Since the ordinance has not been passed, this is being done on a contingency. The Supervisors must adopt the Flood Plan Ordinance for the Flood Plain Map, since it is directly tied into getting out of COG.  The building code enforcement officer is in charge of enforcing the flood plan.

 

Susan Oliver from WPX could not attend the meeting but she sent an e-mail to provide an update about the operations in the Township.  WPX is continuing to work with the DEP regarding concerns in Franklin Forks with the well water at the Manning, Hadlick and Henry residences.  WPX is still voluntarily delivering water to all three residences.

 

Since Dan was not in attendance, there was no road master report.

 

Lee reported that Soil Conservation was in the Township to clear trees out of the creeks.  This was done in the creek near Ken Coy’s property and also the Mitchell’s property.   

 

Mark made a motion to adjourn the meeting at 7:30 P.M.  Lee seconded the motion.  The motion passed with 2 yes votes.

 

Respectfully Submitted, 

Jeanne Sullivan
