Security system proposals reviewed in Armenia Twp.
Security was on the minds of Armenia Township supervisors recently.
At the township's last meeting, supervisors reviewed two bids for a security system for the township maintenance building.
One was from ADT and the other was presented by Eric Riggs and Walter Woods, representing Riggs Electric in Canton.
Action was tabled until the next meeting.
It was noted that a letter had been received from the governor appointing Ken Krise as emergency management coordinator for the township.
Also, the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency sent a letter acknowledging Krise's appointment.
According to the meeting minutes:
Road Foreman Steve Harris reported that the township has been doing some brush cutting, with assistance from Troy Township.
The supervisors said they will be reviewing possible projects under the Dirt and Gravel program.
It was noted that Hazard Mitigation Projects are being reviewed.
Township secretary Mallory Babcock noted that the School House Committee is still waiting for the contractor to replace the roof on the school house.
Maldonado reported that the AES wind farm is starting its semi-annual maintenance and the farm is doing well.
The Gannon Insurance package was reviewed with Steve Sumner from Gannon.
Supervisors made several changes that will be put into the township policies. Babcock said a couple of vehicles were added to the policy.
Only one cinder bid, from Matthews Trucking, was received. It was accepted.
During the public comment period, resident James Smith said someone in a truck, either the driver or a passenger, has been shooting a gun into the air, while on township roads.
He said there is a flooding problem on Cleveland Road, near the AES road. Tony Maldonado, with AES, said he would look at it to see if AES has any responsibility. Supervisor Steve Harris said he would also look at the problem, according to the minutes.
