The Barrett Supervisors are going ahead with a referendum on the November ballot to remove the 1/2 mill tax dedicated to Open Space.  The meeting will be held on Friday, August 3, at 9:30 a.m. to receive public input and then they will vote to approve the new referendum.  If you SUPPORT Open Space, and do not want the current ordinance to end, please plan to attend the meeting and voice your concerns.  If you cannot attend the meeting (which is being held on a weekday), please voice your opinion by calling the township at 570-595-2602(leave a message), speaking with individual Supervisors, or e-mailing the Chairman of the Supervisors, Ralph Megliola, at megliola@ptd.net.

Please share this information with friends and neighbors. The Supervisors believe that the residents of Barrett Township do not want to continue supporting Open Space. If you disagree, you need to let them know.

Thank you for your time,
Patti O'Keefe

See you there!

We've been burning firewood at our house for 2 years now, and after last year's issues of stacking (and-restacking the parts that fell over) firewood, I decided that it was time to build something a little more solid. We considered building a large lean-to to put the firewood under, but the cost of lumber to build it was in excess of $800 - about how much we spend for firewood to burn for the entire winter.
