BRUSH VALLEY: Township supervisors review seats up for election
BRUSH VALLEY TOWNSHIP — The Brush Valley Township supervisors reviewed the upcoming general election at Monday’s meeting, discussing what positions will be determined on the ballot Nov. 5.
Township residents will elect a supervisor for a six-year term, auditor for a six-year term and a tax collector for a four-year term, but none of those candidates face opposition.
There is no candidate on the ballot for auditor, according to Robin Brilhart, township secretary.
Anyone interested in running for the auditor position through a write-in campaign should contact Brilhart at (724) 479-3358 regarding duties required for the position.
In other business, supervisors:
• Set trick-or-treating for 6 to 8 p.m. on Oct. 31. Residents who are participating should turn on an outdoor light.
Children 12 and younger must be accompanied by an adult.
• Announced landfill passes are still available for township residents to take up to a 1-ton load to Evergreen Landfill at a reduced rate. Passes can be obtained by calling Brilhart.
• Approved the lowest quotes for a paving project on Littletown Road. Equipment and labor from Russell Standard Corp. of Bridgeville is expected to cost $12,750, and asphalt sand from Marion Center Supply is expected to cost $3,290.
• Named a private road off Big Buck Drive as Big Bear Drive. Two homes are located on the private drive and can no longer be accessed from Big Buck Drive, Brilhart said. The naming of the private road is to prevent a delay of emergency response, she said.
