Resolution 2018-11.Manager Prysock presented the Resolution to support submitting a grant application to the DVRPC Municipal Bridge Retro-Reimbursement Program to replace the E. Locust Lane Bridge. The bridge meets all of the criteria to be eligible for the grant and has been listed as failing on the last few bridge inspection reports. Public Works Director Simpson stated that if the grant is awarded the Township could apply for a low interest low through the PA Infrastructure bank to pay for the upfront construction costs. If awarded, the grant would reimburse the Township for 80% of the cost to replace the bridge. The estimate to replace the bridge is $700,000. The Supervisors voted 4-0 to support the grant application. Supervisor McKinstry also sent word that he supported the grant application but wasn’t able to attend the meeting.
The public meeting was adjourned at 7:22 p.m.
