1.      Meeting of Quincy Township Board of Supervisors was called to order at 7:00 pm. by Supervisor Gunder followed by the Pledge of Allegiance. Six residents and Mike Hansen were in attendance. 

     2.      There was no initial public comment.

     3.      The minutes of  January 24, 2013 and the bills except those paid to the Supervisors were approved on a Bumbaugh/Sanders motion with a correction         to the word in item # 11.  Motion carried unanimously.

     4.      A TCE Update was given. A meeting was held with DEP on Tuesday January 29th and they gave their blessing to the concept of drilling the second exploratory well on the Peiffer tract. DEP has been here and looked at the site for the second well. The whole system will have to be permitted. We will need to get easements for several properties to run the lines connecting the two wells. DEP has sent a letter requesting a timeline extension to December 31, 2015 to complete the project. Also we have received an agreement from Orrstown Bank for the exploratory well on the Peiffer Tract. We will need a separate predrilling plan for the Peiffer tract. The acquisition of the Bricker property was discussed. A letter has been received from Mr. Bricker about leasing the property. DEP wants the Township to own the property and with the Peiffer tract they will only pay for the wellhead protection area and easement. A Bumbaugh/Sanders motion approved the agreement with Orrstown Bank being signed. Motion carried unanimously.

     5.      The Franklin County Planning Commission was provided field surveys. They are on board with using Tarman Springs as a connection for Furnace Road. They want Furnace Road connected to Tarman Springs by June 1st and water to there by August 1, 2013. The construction permit may hold us up. There is a meeting with John High from William Brindle’s Office today to get the design done for the connection for Furnace Road.
