Quincy Township

Franklin County, Pennsylvania


1. At a public meeting on January 28, 2018, the Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to adopt Resolution 2018-2, which authorized the filing of a grant application under the 2018 PA Small Water Program to help fund the Tomstown Public Water Main Extension which is designed to provide potable water to nine homes along Tomstown Road north of the Mentzer Gap Road intersection. The Township has already secured $62,594 of the $180,000 estimated cost to construct this line from the 2017 Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG). Unfortunately, the State Financing Authority chose not to fund the difference; however, on September 20, 2018 the Board authorized filing a new application for additional funding from the 2018 CDBG Program.

2. At a public meeting on January 28, 2018, the Board of Supervisors voted 2 to 1 to adopt Resolution 2018-3, which authorized a Declaration of Taking for the purpose of exercising the right of Eminent Domain for the Mount Valley Riders Saddle Club property.  This right was exercised on May 22, 2018 after negotiations with the Saddle Club were unsuccessful. The Court has appointed a 3 judge panel to review the case. In the interim, the Township participated in a Court Hearing on September 24, 2018, including testimony by the Vice Chairman, to hear objections raised by the Condemnee's Attorney.  On October 17, 2018, the Court overruled those objections and scheduled a new hearing for November 20, 2018. The 3 judge review panel has not met to date. 

3. At a public meeting on March 26, 2018, the Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to file a 50% matching Municipal Park Grant Application with DCNR to purchase an adjoining 6.6179 acres  of private ground to be added to the Park, also known as Heritage Park.  The Grant Application was filed on April 9, 2018.

4. At a public meeting on April 18, 2018, the Board of Supervisors approved making a future commitment to move and restore the historic pump trough located in the square of Tomstown; after the Tomstown Public Water Mainline Extension is completed and residents are no longer dependent on the services of the private line for their daily water needs.

5. At a public meeting on May 1, 2018, the Board of Supervisors announced that a draft Memo of Understanding had been developed with the Mont Alto Municipal Authority to provide public water to the proposed White Rock Town Center. The two parties have been diligently working to hammer out the salient details of the agreement.
