Newtown Board of Supervisors Meeting Summaries

Newtown Board of Supervisors Meeting Summaries | Summaries of Newtown Board of Supervisors Meetings | Scoop.it

Minutes of Newtown Supervisors meetings may be long and boring, but hidden within these documents are important discussions and decisions that affect every resident. One of my goals is to make it easier for everyone to find specific topics within the dozens of documents available. To this end I have created short summaries of minutes arranged by topic.

 

When the approived minutes are truncated dues to policy changes and do not include important information or when they have not been uploaded within 24 hours after being officially approved, I have created summaries based on video and/or audio recordings - the "People's Minutes" as I like to call it.

 

These summaries are indexed by keywords. Use the little funnel icon in the upper right to search for summaries by keywords such as Budget, Fracking, Medical Marijuana, Signs, Trails, Water Quality, etc.

Bad Turf, Contaminated Water, Discrimination, & Birds Discussed at Recent Newtown Township Board of Supervisors Meeting

The Newtown Township Supervisors voted unanimously July 11, to approve a settlement with Adams Bickle Associates, a Royersford contractor the township hired to install turf at Veterans Park in 2012.

 

Back then, township inspectors became unsatisfied with the work that was done at the park and subsequently withheld $158,000 in payments to the contractor.

 

In the settlement with Adams Bickle, the contractor agreed to accept $122,000 as payment in full and both parties agreed to pay their own legal fees. According to outgoing Township Manager Kurt Ferguson, the township spent the difference paying another contractor to finish the work not completed by Adams Bickle.

 

In other news, the supervisors voted 3-1 to spend more than $21,000 to replace the microphone system at the Public Administration Building’s meeting room. Board member Kyle Davis voted against the plan that would see more than $13,000 paid to Horizon Information Services for new mics and over $8,000 to Video Gold Productions for installation.

 

The supervisors also voted 4-0 to appoint Micah Lewis as interim township manager after Ferguson’s departure on July 13. Lewis has been the township’s assistant manager since 2015. While Ferguson accepted a job as township manager in Lower Makefield, he has agreed to work as a consultant to Newtown, at least through the remainder of the 2018 fiscal year.

 

Meanwhile, Secretary/Assistant Treasurer John Mack wants residents to be aware of a public meeting being hosted by the EPA at Hatboro-Horsham High School from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. July 25. Workshops will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with discussion to follow.

 

The subject matter is perfluorinated compounds or PFAs.

 

“Our neighbors in Horsham, Warminster and Warrington had some of the highest levels, nationwide, of PFAs – which have been found to be toxic – in their drinking water.

 

“Newtown Artesian Water Company says it follows state and federal guidelines for acceptable levels of these chemicals. But there’s controversy over what is and what is not an acceptable level and the role that the EPA plays in determining that level.”

 

Mack is also pressing the board to draft an anti-discrimination ordinance that would extend protections against discrimination in housing, employment and public accommodation regardless of race, color, gender, religion, ancestry, national origin, sexual orientation, veteran status and mental or physical disability.

 

Pennsylvania is the only state in the Northeast that does not extend those protections based on sexual orientation and gender identification. Yardley recently became the fifth municipality in Bucks County to approve such legislation. Doylestown, New Hope and Bristol also have passed anti-discrimination bills.

johnmacknewtown's curator insight, July 20, 7:20 AM

At the August 8, 2018, Board of Supervisors meeting, I will present what I learned at at the Horsham EPA meeting. A represntative of the Artesian Water Company hopefully will also be there to present a report on the quality of Newtown water and to answer questions from residents.

Development

Arcadia Green/Newtown Holdings LLC, Tentative Plan Application Denied in a 5-0 vote.

 

Prepared Statement by Supervisor Mack

"After listening to all the testimony, reading the reports of experts, and listening to residents of surrounding communities, I will vote to deny the current Arcadia PRD Definition because I think it would be unsafe for residents of that development – should it go forward – to exit and enter the development. Also, let’s not forget the additional traffic it would bring to the intersection of Buck Road and the Bypass. Lastly, the plan for a U-turn to allow access to the Bypass is totally impractical, unsafe, and will cause major delays in my opinion, which seems to also be the opinion of PennDOT and other experts."

 

Fiscal Responsibility

2019 Draft Budget: Vote to authorize the advertisement for adoption of the 2019 preliminary budget passed 5-0.

 

Public Safety

Newtown Ambulance Squad: Chief Evan Resnikoff, Newtown Ambulance Squad, informed the Board as of September first, NAS no longer cover Northampton Township and will see a “significant decrease” in its subscription drive revenue.
