1.      Meeting of Quincy Township Board of Supervisors was called to order at 7:00 p.m. by Chairman Gunder followed by the Pledge of Allegiance. Nine residents were in attendance.

 2.      During the Public Comment Period, representatives from the No One Fights Alone Non Profit group, which helps families who have members fighting cancer, with financial assistance were in attendance. They are requesting from the Township to be recognized as a nonprofit, so they can get started with raising money. This is mainly for small games of chance and has nothing to do with tax purposes. Solicitor Lisko said there is a resolution that the Township can pass that will help with the small games of chance, but nothing with taxes. Solicitor Lisko will have the resolution ready for the workshop on February 20, 2014.

 3.      The Minutes of January 23, 2014 along with the bills except those paid to the Supervisors were approved on a Sanders/Bumbaugh motion. Motion carried unanimously.

 4.      Tomstown/Furnace Road update was given. The settlement agreement has been signed for the Tarman Springs site and it is waiting on the Attorneys to complete the deed and other paper work. The Township has received comments from DEP today and they want us to consider placing the water tank and treatment plant in Heritage Park. The Supervisors believe that the tank and water treatment plant cannot be placed in the Park because the funds for building the Park came from DCNR. DEP was going to meet tomorrow, but will not meet until Thursday because of the impending weather. At the meeting we will first have to resolve the location before we can go on with bid specs and other work.

 5.      An update on the Municipal Park was given. There is going to be a meeting on February 21 with Park Grant advisor, Solicitor Lisko and the Supervisors about the submittal for reimbursement of the remaining grant money.

 6.      A Bumbaugh/Sanders motion approved the signing of the Intergovernmental Radio agreement and Resolution 2014-3. Motion carried unanimously.

 7.      A Sanders/Bumbaugh motion reapproved the Kenneth Hauk Land Development Plan and Charles Pentz Subdivision Plan.  Motion carried unanimously.

 8.      A Bumbaugh/Sanders motion approved releasing a portion of the letter of credit from Harlan Bayer once it is determined that the infiltration trenches have been installed on lot #5. The amount being released will be

       $3, 362. Motion carried unanimously.

 9.      Supervisor Bumbaugh informed the Board that more salt has arrived, some has been mixed for the impending storm. We have also had a rough year on our trucks. Buck’s truck was down again today and #9 had the clutch go out. Supervisor Sanders asked what year Buck’s truck was and was informed that it is either 1996 or 1997. Also Supervisor Bumbaugh informed the Board that working with Penn DOT has been of a benefit to the Township.

 10.  During the final public comment period, Supervisor Bumbaugh informed the Board that he has met with the school district about the road at Mowery Elementary School and should know something next week.

 11.  Ed Wilson is waiting on the estimates for the spouting and tile for the park. He has the other estimates and will have everything ready for the meeting with DCNR.

 12.  Bill Wilhide asked if anyone has heard of  people being sick in the TCE area. The Board informed him they have not.

 13.  The meeting adjourned at 7:30 pm on a Sanders/Gunder motion.
