Honors and Mountains of Mulch

Last night's meeting of the Douglass (Mont.) Board of Supervisors was quite but

State Rep. Marcy Toepel, R-147th Dist., was on hand to provide awards from the House of Representatives to longtime firefighters Rick Smith and Harvey Price.

Together the two of them represent more than 90 years of service to the residents of Gilbertsville. "It doesn't seem that long," said Price.

Then the board got down to some less pleasant business at hand.

The agreement with Mountain Mulch to leave their operation on Sassamansville Road and find a new place to do business expired on March 31.

But they're still there, as neighbor Karen Keyser attested.

So the board has decided to seek sanctions from the county court.

But it may all be moot.

Dave Yusko told the board he is hoping to sign an agreement of sale for the property within several days and return it to its former agricultural use and raise horses there.

All expressed the hope that this happens soon.

Here are the Tweets from the meeting.
