Local News

Some residents (especially in the northern area) have voiced concern about the quality of cell-phone reception.  We have been told by Verizon that it is in the process of upgrading the number of towers as well as the system to 5G.  If you have interest in improving the quality of reception, we have been advised by Verizon that it would be helpful if residents called Verizon customer service at 800-922-0204 to register their views.  If enough people call in, Verizon creates a work ticket to review service quality and might then increase the speed of Barrett's upgrade. Verizon does offer rental compensation for the location of their tower on your property; however, esthetic and other concerns of our neighbors and the township are very important and would be best first discussed with Township Supervisors.

Sidewalks do not "bring business" into town.  Businesses do.  Then, those businesses add sidewalks. 

Sidewalks are a liability.  Sidewalks require maintenance.  Tree roots push sidewalks up and crack them, creating more "trip and fall" hazards. 

Then, when it snows, they fine you for not shoveling:

(Original Article from March 2017)
At a recent Marketing meeting at the Community Center, building a public septic system was presented as a solution for residents along 390 and 447 who don't have sufficient space for a sand mound.  It remains to be seen whether it is better to build smaller, separate systems, or combine them all into one.  Since there are plenty of slopes and natural features in this area, we could build the whole system to be gravity fed.

DEP issues pollution violation to Weiler

The Department of Environmental Protection issued a notice of violation to the Weiler Corporation for polluting a pond on its property.

Weiler is in the process of remediating the spill.

The pond sits to the left of a land bridge at the company’s entrance and creates a smaller pond through a culvert to the right of the roadway.

Weiler Corp. first noticed a sheen on the pond in front of the facility and tried to determine what the source of the substance was, according to Weiler President and CEO Chris Weiler. They learned of the source on Feb. 3.

“It was likely some underground storage tanks that are used to heat and cool the building,” he said.
