WHITE TOWNSHIP: Pool bathhouse project addition set

The bathhouse at Mack Park Pool in the J.S. Mack Community Center requires a little additional work to comply with Americans with Disabilities Act standards, officials reported Wednesday at the White Township supervisors’ meeting.

The additions to the project are described as minor curb work.

The J.S. Mack Foundation will pay for the work, according to Milt Lady, township manager. Painting will also be completed around the same time, he said.

The first phase of the pool renovation project, started in 2009, cost roughly $1.2 million.

A second phase ran in the $700,000 range.

The project was supported in part by grants from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the Department of Community and Economic Development.

No township funding was used on the project. While the J.S. Mack Foundation owns the pool, the township administered the project’s grant funding.

In other business, supervisors:

• Approved a motion to set the township’s fees and consolidate the information into a single fee schedule.

In the past, information on the fees has been available in about a dozen different documents, according to Chris Anderson, assistant borough manager.

Among the fees are those that cover recycling, storm-water, special meetings that are requested and mobile home park licenses.

The consolidated fee schedule will eventually be available online, Anderson said.

• Adopted a resolution to add a stop sign on Wren Street and another on Horseshoe Drive.

• Approved the sale of a tractor to Burrell Township for $28,500.
