White Township officials are moving ahead with plans to connect a sewer line to the Airport Professional Building and surrounding area.

At Wednesday’s regular board meeting, the township supervisors signed off on documents for the state Department of Transportation that will start that process.

There is no timeline for the project, according to assistant township manager Chris Anderson. He could not immediately provide the project cost.

The casing for the sewer line that will be installed beneath a bridge being built over Airport Road will allow for a small pump station to be built, Anderson said Thursday. It will tie into the township’s existing sewer system.

The Airport Professional Building currently uses an on-lot sewer system, according to Anderson.

In other business, the supervisors agreed to pay engineering firm AMEC $50,000 for an initial assessment of the township’s stormwater management system.

The project, which is to take between 12 and 18 months, will review the system and how much of the township’s budget is spent on the system, Anderson said. Officials are putting those who plow private drives on notice, asking that they keep snow they remove on their own property. When snow is plowed onto the roads from residences, Anderson said, it tends to create ice and piles of snow that are at times impassable for road crews.

“We’re sending out the message,” Anderson said, “but if it tends to be a problem area, we have codes in place and can cite property owners.”

Officials discussed the fact that the township has closed on the purchase of a 20-plus acre property adjacent to the White Township Recreation Complex. The parcel was purchased for close to $25,000. There are no specific plans yet for the property, Anderson said.

Township officials are reminding residents that the deadline for making a payment on property liens is fast approaching. Feb. 24 is the final day to make a payment to avoid fees if the township is forced to take legal action.
