June 17, 2019 – Legislative Digest

Hi, Neighbors. We had an Aleppo Legislative Meeting last week and I wanted to tell you what happened.

If you want to watch the meeting from the beginning, click here. Otherwise, feel free to click the links below to jump to the portions of the meeting that are of particular interest to you.

Before I get into the digest, let me just say that this was my last Aleppo meeting and I am very grateful to all the township’s residents for letting me serve for the last 6 years. During the meeting, I delivered a short farewell speech–if you’re interested in my retrospective on what we’ve done and what we’ve left undone, take a look. (Click here to watch this portion of the meeting.) Also, click here to watch a very sweet clip of my kids presenting me with a going away present.

Also, as a reminder, my resignation will create a vacancy on the board. If you are interested in being considered to be appointed to fill this vacancy, please let me know.

OK, sentimentality out of the way, here’s what happened:

  • We heard what the police department has been up to in Aleppo Township. (Click here to watch this portion of the meeting.) #Police
  • Our Public Works Director told us what the road crews have been doing. (Click here to watch this portion of the meeting.) #PublicWorks
  • I read an email from a resident in support of HR 763. (Click here to watch this portion of the meeting.) #HR763
  • We voted (5-0) to approve the submitted Verizon covered parking lot plan as recommended by the planning commission and HRG subject to entering into a Developer’s Agreement prepared by and acceptable to the Township Solicitor. (Click here to watch this portion of the meeting.) #Verizon
  • We heard a presentation from Braiden Blosser, who is a candidate for the opening on the Zoning Hearing Board and made a motion to appoint him. (Click here to watch this portion of the meeting.) We will be voting on this motion at the next meeting, so please let me know if you have any input on this topic. #ZoningHearingBoard
  • Our treasurer told us how much tax revenue we have collected and how much money we have in the bank. (Click here to watch this portion of the meeting.) #Treasurer
  • Our solicitor told us that the Verizon Franchise Agreement is ready for board approval–we will be discussing that next month. (Click here to watch this portion of the meeting.) #Solicitor
  • We voted (5-0) to contact the DEP to ask them to make a site inspection of 690 Glen Mitchell Road. (Click here to watch this portion of the meeting.) #DEP
  • We voted (5-0) to adopt the May 2019 version of the Emergency Operations Procedure for Aleppo Township. (Click here to watch this portion of the meeting.) #EmergencyOperations
  • We voted (5-0) to hire technicians to perform AV tasks at Township meetings in the amount of $100 per meeting. (Click here to watch this portion of the meeting.) #AVTechnicians
  • We made a motion to adopt a statement saying “The Board of Commissioners of Aleppo Township support HR 763, the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. We urge our elected leaders to support this as a potential solution to climate change.” We voted (5-0) to defer this motion until there are 5 members of the board. (Click here to watch this portion of the meeting.) #HR763
  • During Citizen Participation, a resident opposed any action concerning HR 763, another asked about plans for repair of Redgate Road, and a third expressed concern for litter in the lot that is being used for truck parking along Deer Run Road. (Click here to watch this portion of the meeting.) #CitizenParticipation

Our next Workshop meeting will be on Monday, July 8, 2019 at 7:00 PM.  If any of these issues are important to you, please feel free to join us. If you cannot attend the meeting in person, please feel free to share your thoughts with me by email and I will be sure to convey your feelings to the other commissioners.
