Feb. 07--Black Creek Township supervisors will advertise for bids for the renovations for the Nuremberg Community Players Theatre.
The township bid the project previously, solicitor Donald Karpowich said, but the bids exceeded the grant amount. The township is now only bidding the heating, ventilation and air conditioning portion of the renovations, hoping the grant will cover this portion of the work, he said.
The supervisors anticipates opening the bids at their next meeting, which is March 4 at 2 p.m.
Supervisors passed resolutions selecting Berkheimer Associates to collect per capita and delinquent taxes and PNC Bank as the depository.
Glass can now be co-mingled with other recyclables, Supervisor Bonnie Adams said. Glass couldn't be co-mingled initially because the compactor was new, she said. Now, after seven months of operation glass no longer has to be separated, she said.
The township recycled 79.2 tons in 2013 after the center went into operation in June, Adams said.
Engineer Joseph Calabrese reports two projects are before planning, including minor subdivision with no development planned and a storm water and land development plan for an operation and maintenance building for the Buck Mountain Wind Farm. No wind turbines will be located in the township, he said.
Applicants should be available to answer questions about the plans at the next planning meeting on Feb. 20.
The township received a petition from two landowners to vacate a portion of Hilltop Drive, Karpowich said. A hearing will be held on the matter at 1:30 p.m. on March 4, prior to the supervisors' meeting.
