  1. Meeting of Quincy Township Board of Supervisors was called to order at 7:00 p.m. by Chairman

    Bumbaugh followed by the Pledge of Allegiance.  Three residents were in attendance.


  2. There was no initial public comment period.


  3. The minutes of November 7, 2018 were approved as written along with the bills for November 2018, except those paid to the Supervisors on a Gunder/Wilson motion.  Motion carried unanimously.


  1. A Wilson/Gunder motion approved signing the Memorandum of Understanding with Mont Alto Municipal Authority for the water supply for the Penn National Town Center. Motion carried unanimously.


  1. On November 15, 2018, Quincy Township was informed by letter that our Municipal Park Acquisition Matching Funds Grant Application, filed on April 9, 2018 was approved for $25,400. This grant will enable the Township to purchase in early 2019 the 6.6 acres from Kenneth & Cathy Misner in order to enlarge the Municipal Park for planned future improvements.


  1. A Gunder/Wilson motion approved the Franklin County Area Tax Board’s 2019 operating budget with a cost of collection proposed at 1.84% or well below the desired rate of 2%.  Motion carried unanimously.


  1. A Bumbaugh/Wilson motion approved keeping the 2019 Franklin County Tax Board representatives the same as last year with Robert Gunder being the primary attendee and Vicki Nunemaker the alternate. Motion carried unanimously.


  1. Supervisor Gunder informed the Board that a letter was received from the Richard Lutzke Family on Tomstown Road, letting the Township know that they would like to connect to public water as soon as it is available.  Their home is located just north of the terminus of the proposed Tomstown Road Mainline Extension; however, due to their home being in a different pressure zone, we cannot connect them at this time. They would be better served when a future mainline extension takes place on Bakner/Mormon Church Roads. The Lutzke’s also congratulated the Township on receiving the additional Municipal Park Grant of $25,400.


  1.  Supervisor Gunder informed that Board that the Township has received a letter from a father and daughter that they are pledging $1000 to the restoration of the Tomstown pump trough when that project takes shape in the near future.  The father’s home place is located just east of the pump on Mentzer Gap Road.


  1. On December 12, 2018, we will be having the closing for the $3,138,000 General Obligation Bond with Orrstown Bank for the loan to cover the rollover of the current line of credit with M&T, as well as funding for the PSL mainline and Well #7 remaining project costs.


  1. There was no final public comment.


  1. The meeting adjourned at 7:10 pm. on a Wilson/Gunder motion.
