AUGUST 3RD, 2017


The Center Township Board of Supervisors held their August meeting on August 3rd, 2017 at the Penns Creek Fire Hall at 7:00 p.m. with the following persons present; Supervisors:  George Richard Jr., Ronald Rice and Maynard Keister, Secretary:  Teresa Hibbs, others included Keith Spigelmyer, Bill Hackenberg and James Emery.

 The Secretary and Treasurer’s reports were read and approved, subject to audit.  Mr. Richard made a motion, seconded by Mr. Rice to approve the minutes.

 Mr. Rice made a motion, seconded by Mr. Keister to pay the bills.


Property Maintenance – Mr. James Emery attended the meeting from the Central Keystone Cog to discuss the possibility of Center Township entering into a Property Maintenance contract with the Central Keystone Cog.  This would provide Municipal Property Maintenance administration services.  The Supervisors can decide on the Cog taking a proactive or a reactive role.  The Supervisors decided to table this for another month to give them time to decide which method would be most productive for the Municipality.  Also, the letter was received by Mr. Susan on the property maintenance issue there.


Burn Ordinance Violation – It was brought to the Township’s attention by DEP that they have been receiving complaints on a Mr. Darryl Wagner burning trash illegally in Penns Creek.  A certified letter was sent to Mr. Wagner on this issue.  The Supervisors decided it may be productive to re-advertise that Center Township does have a Burn Ordinance in effect as of April 2011.

 Repository of Unsold Property – The Snyder County Tax Claim Bureau sent a letter of the intention of Miranda Hackenberg to purchase said property.  They requested a written consent letter from the Municipality.  The Supervisors have no adverse comments and therefore give their written consent.

 Reviewed Letters – a subdivision plan was reviewed on Ms. Dawn Smith and a waiver granted for Mr. Amos Zimmerman’s development.

 The next meeting will be held at the Township Municipal building on Tuesday September 5th, 2017.

 Mr. Richard made a motion, seconded by Mr. Rice to adjourn the meeting.  The meeting adjourned at 7:58 p.m.


Respectfully submitted,


Teresa Hibbs, Secretary
