            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. Ten residents were in attendance. 

       2.      During the initial period of public comment, Charlotte Rhone of 4970 Spruce Road asked about the progress of a situation at 11388 South Mountain Road which  belongs to Edith Woodlief. The Supervisors informed her that a registered letter has been sent and received. Mrs. Woodlief has until July 15 to comply.

            3.      The minutes of June 21, 2012 were approved with a correction to item #5 being the information came from Rhoads and Sinon not John Lisko and the prior month’s              bills except those paid to the Supervisors on a Bumbaugh/Gunder motion. Motion carried unanimously.

            4.      An update was given on the TCE Public Water System. A meeting was held with Ron Horton, our engineer and a representative from SAIC. The calculations for the amount of gallons required by DEP  for the TCE site is short by 75 gallons per minute. Therefore the gallons coming from the Tarman Springs well would be available as capacity for the TCE site. Also, they are working on a bonafide tap fee. The permit for the well at Tarman Springs was sent in and then returned as inadequate. This was responded to and resubmitted.

            5.      The Municipal Park Project needs to have an NPDES Permit. Soils Conservation is requiring this permit. John Melham is going to prepare the permit as cheaply as he can. This should be completed and submitted by the end of the month. While we are waiting on the permit, we are going to start renovating the existing building.

            6.      A Sanders/Bumbaugh motion approved the Roland & Loretta Hess Subdivision based on sewer planning module being approved. Motion carried unanimously.

            7.      James & Jane Zaiger Subdivision was approved on a Bumbaugh/Sanders motion pending correction of the storm water comments from Martin & Martin. Motion carried unanimously.

           10.  Resolution 2012-5, Sewer Users Fees for Uninhabited Structures was approved on a Bumbaugh/Sanders motion that as long as we can make our payment and meet our yearly budget and if cannot we will look at the resolution again. Motion carried unanimously.

            11.  The Board discussed George Heinbaugh’s request for a temporary use of an existing apartment that is on his property on McKean Lane. He would like to allow a 78 year old relative of his wife’s to live there for three to five months until her apartment in Waynesboro becomes available. They are going to request a letter from her doctor and once that is received the Board does approve of the use.

             12.  The zoning Officer gave a written report for the Board to review. The issue with the Green property has been taken care of via a land use permit.

             13.  Supervisor Bumbaugh questioned about the Waynesboro Area School District needing a land use permit to do commercial alterations at the Mowry Elementary School. He asked if school district were exempt from getting permits. Solicitor Lisko will research to see whether school district is exempt and also what other Townships do. The Board will continue their discussion on the school district being exempt at their next meeting.

              17.  During the final period of public comment, Frank Mong asked the Board if they had an opportunity to meet with the Mont Alto Ambulance Squad since the last Board meeting. The Supervisors have not met with them and believe that the Ambulance Squad should be the ones to initiate anything further than the Board’s agreement to look at the Townships budget at the end of the third quarter and if have extra to make a donation to them.

              18.  David Fair asked about a turn lane being place on Orphanage Road due to more traffic coming from West Minister Place once constructed. He was informed that the traffic study revealed that no turn lane was required.

              19.  Frank Mong informed the Board that mowing was done at the small pavilion in Mont Alto Park and that Oak Knob Trail has been marked.
