WHITE TOWNSHIP: Supervisors update documents to reflect change

by on February 28, 2013 11:00 AM

In a mostly housekeeping-focused session, the White Township board of supervisors updated two township documents to reflect the recent change in the township manager position.

Longtime manager Larry Garner retired in January, and former assistant manager Milt Lady took his place. But the documents still named Garner as the manager, Lady said.

The supervisors voted to update the 457 Deferred Compensation Plan for employees, giving the authority to execute the plan to the township manager or assistant manager (a position rather than a particular name). Garner had been listed as the executor.

The supervisors also voted to sign a letter giving Lady and assistant township manager Chris Anderson the authority to register vehicles or transfer registrations or titles. Again, Garner was listed on the registration.

Lady also told the supervisors that the township filed a claim on the road bond put up by Aquatic Synthesis, a drilling wastewater treatment company at the former Kay Arena along Mabon Road. Lady said the road needed to be repaired due to truck traffic related to the company, which was done by Sharp Paving for $13,230, but that requests for payment to Aquatic Synthesis went unmet.

The road bond was for $12,500, which was received and turned over to Sharp Paving, he said.

He also said that the township will be advertising for bids for road materials in March.

In other business, the supervisors voted to:

n Allow the state police Camp Cadet program to hold a 5K race on Ramsey Run Road on June 22.

n Pay $193,338.63 to Indiana Borough for Indiana’s wastewater treatment plant’s reserve fund for capital improvements.

The township makes a payment annually to the fund, and supervisor George Lenz asked for some sort of accounting review to ensure the money is being kept in the fund and not used for short-term needs.

n Approve another payment of $135,206.10 for a renovation to the bathhouse at the Mack Park public swimming pool. The township administers the grant received for the project, so the supervisors must approve the payment. The project should be completed before April 1.
