June 16, 2003

The Board of Supervisors of Pennsbury Township held a regular meeting on Monday, June 16, 2003. All members, Mr. Patten and Ms. Howley were present and the minutes approved as submitted.

Manager Kathy Howley reported the following:

Greg Leeber has asked for an approval from the township for their stream discharge sewage system. They live on Parkersville Road at Pocopson Road. There are no other alternatives and need the township's approvals before the permit request is sent to DEP. The Chester Co. Health Dept has signed off on it. The Board asked that URS review the application and comment before we send it onto DEP.

Courts at Longwood - Matt Houtmann is on vacation this week. He told Ms. Howley that he would be meeting with S&S Developers and Pocopson Township on June 25th to go over what has to be completed in the development before October '03. Received a letter from Greg Harrison stated that the developer owes him one tree that died. Anne Walters has a copy of the landscaping plan and will review it for project completion.

Knoll Stop Sign Project - we are in the process of gathering information and will have a recommendation from Matt Houtmann by the July 7th meeting. Carol Koehler asked about the status of abandoned cars in the Knoll. Ms. Howley will get a report from Mr. Drumheller by the end of this week and let her know. She also asked about barking dogs and what can do done. The township does not have an ordinance to regulate this and even if we did, enforcement would be an issue.

The state has completed a 3 yr pension plan audit. There were no findings.

The mill expenses to date are $98,000. Project restoration manager Rob Howard said he would be able to get the mill in working order for school children by September 1st with minimal expense. The pond still needs to be dredged and private funding is being sought for this.

A letter has been sent to First Keystone Federal Savings instructing them to release the escrow for Whitestone Farm.

The supervisors discussed the proposed Regional Planning Commission agreement. MaryAnna Ralph will revisit this document with the Commission and ask them to soften the language. Dave Patten stated that some township authority is being relinquished if accepted in present form. Bill Reynolds is interested in reviewing what Kennett Borough submits for approval. A bill list dated June 16th numbering 4481-4522 was submitted and approved for payment by the Board. With no further business the meeting adjourned and a conditional use hearing for Tony Dambro property started at 8:15 p.m. and finished at 9:15 p.m.

Respectfully submitted, Kathleen Howley, Townnship Manager
