Supervisors crack down on grass ordinances | News

Centertownship supervisors said Monday that they would enforce the grass ordinance more rigorously this year, giving criminals from 2021 a warning before taking them to the judge.

“Our law enforcement officers are putting pressure on Centertownship homes that do not comply with the Township Ordinance,” said Matthew Householder, Chairman of the Board. “Repeated criminals from last year were given one final warning before being taken to a justice of the peace for prosecution.”

The Township was tolerant of enforcing the Grass Ordinance last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Housholder explained. Supervisors have said they are willing to work with housing to remedy the ordinance violations, but have not expanded the same generosity as last year.

In other news on Monday, supervisors said rising fuel prices would make towns less frequent on road berms. Previously, someone in the town was mowing berms every day, explained Sara Smith, secretary and treasurer of the board. But to maintain budget funding, supervisors said they would mow berms as needed this year, not every day.

“Fuel costs aren’t out of the ordinary and continue to deteriorate,” Smith said. “We don’t have the budget for that.”

Township supervisors approved two bids on Monday, accepting a pipe and basin bid by Pleasant Unity Supply and a fuel bid by Accent Fuels.

The supervisor has accepted the next bid for Pleasant Unity Supply.

• $ 37.28 per unit delivered in the field 24 inch smoothbore pipe

• $ 19.64 per unit delivered in the field 18 inch smoothbore pipe

• $ 14.46 per unit delivered in the field 15 inch smoothbore pipe

• $ 10.69 per unit delivered in the field 12 inch pipe

• $ 9.95 per unit delivered in the field 10 inch pipe

• Performance of an 8-inch smooth wall for $ 7.28 per unit delivered in the field

• 2×2 basin and 2×2 grate is $ 459 per unit delivered in the field.

• A 2×4 basin, including a frame and a 2×4 grate, is $ 862 per unit delivered in the field.

Supervisors have accepted bids that are 15.5 cents higher than the weekly final price of Accent Fuel. This was an advantage over bids that were 19.75 cents higher than the weekly final price of Townsend Gas and Oil.

Also on Monday, the supervisor approved a motion to convert the Commonwealth Bank’s public institutional analysis checking account into a First Commonwealth Bank’s business account in order to end unnecessary account analysis fees.

Housholder has announced that the 2022 Evergreen Landfill Permit and Coupons will be available at the Center Township Office for Township Residents with a valid ID. Landfill charges are about one-third of the normal cost of annual cargo.

Cash cannot be picked up at the landfill.
