State Rep. Marcy Toepel, R-147th Dist., addresses the Douglass (Mont.) Township Supervisors meeting Monday night, but she had nothing to report.
In a meeting reminiscent of the "Seinfeld" episode where George and Jerry pitch a TV show about nothing, the Douglass (Mont.) Supervisors had little to discuss Monday night.
State Rep. Marcy Toepel, R-147th Dist., was home from Harrisburg and stopped in, but what did she have to report?
Township Solicitor Bob Brant?
Nothing, (although one wag in the audience asked aloud how much that will cost us.)
Public Works Director Michael Heydt?
Boy was this going to be a short meeting, and it was.
There was something of consequence, however.
Josh Hagadorn, the engineer from Gilmore Assoc., announced that bids for the new public works building are out on the street.
The board rejected the first set of bids at the Feb. 21 meeting. The new bids will be opened on March 27.
The board also voted to hire Bob Dries, the part-time zoning and inspections supervisor to be the township's construction supervisor at a rate of $45 per hour.
Supervisors Chairman Anthony Kuklinski said the township has budget $900,000 for the project and "we will pay for it out of general funds and it will not cause a tax increase."
Dries said the project will take between four to five months to complete. It will be built at the same location as the current facility, 108 Municipal Dr., which will be demolished.
