WHITE TOWNSHIP: Supervisors debate placement of Playful City signs

by HEATHER ROTH on May 23, 2013 11:00 AM

The Indiana area was named a Playful City USA by a nonprofit organization called KaBOOM!, and officials are trying to decide where to put the designation signs.

White Township Assistant Manager Chris Anderson said at Wednesday’s meeting of the Board of Supervisors that one sign will be placed at the Welcome sign coming into the borough on East Pike; and the other will probably go in on Wayne Avenue unless supervisors had a better idea.

The designation shows the area supports recreation opportunities and opens the door to future recreation grants, he said.

In other business, the supervisors voted to:

• Approve a stormwater management agreement for Scott Rowley’s chiropractic office on Indian Springs Road.

• Approve a resolution signing off on a small games of chance license for Indiana Fox and Coon Association. The township does not grant the license but must pass a resolution saying they do not oppose it.

• Authorize the township to apply for a highway occupancy permit from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation for a private sewer project off Warren Road near the bypass. Anderson said Kevin Sergent is bringing in a sewer line to his property, and that the public line must be extended under Warren Road. The township is not paying for the work but must hold the permit and will take over the line once it is completed.

The supervisors also briefly met in executive session to discuss a proposed real estate purchase agreement.
