1.      Meeting of Quincy Township Board of Supervisors was called to order at 7:02 p.m. by Chairman Gunder followed by the Pledge of Allegiance.  Five residents and a reporter from the Record Herald were in attendance.

2.      There was no comment during initial public comment period. Carroll Wilhide asked why the Township wanted a donation from the ball team for use of the fields for a tournament. The minutes are corrected to state that the ball team requested a donation from the Township not the Township from the ball team.

3.      The Minutes of June 17, 2015 were approved on a Gunder/Bumbaugh motion with the correction along with the bills except those paid to the Supervisors.

4.      Tomstown/Furnace Road Water Project was discussed. Contract 101 is coming to a conclusion The plant area and well site are being completed. The landscaping is being worked on at the pump station. There is a possibility of pursuing liquidated damages.  The engineer is preparing Contract 102. The Solicitor will review contract 102 this month and we should advertise next month with bids coming back in September. A Bumbaugh/Sanders motion authorized Contract 102 being advertised once approved by the Solicitor.

5.      A Sanders/Bumbaugh motion approved using Rhoads and Sinon as our Legal Counsel for Contract 102. Motion carried unanimously.

6.      An update was given about the Municipal Park. John Melham & Rex Benshoff must certify and Jay from DCNR will be doing the final inspection on July 24.

7.      A Bumbaugh/Sanders motion approved the Daniel Hege Land Development Plan. Motion carried unanimously.

10.  A Bumbaugh/Sanders motion approved Advertising our audit for 2014. Motion carried unanimously.

11.  Supervisor Bumbaugh informed the Board about the Fire Companies in Franklin County having Air 25 from Washington County respond first due on all box calls. Air 25 will no longer be responding first due. So Supervisor Bumbaugh has contacted the fire companies to make the changes to their box calls.

12.  A Bumbaugh/Sanders motion approved the Winter Maintenance agreement with Penn Dot for 2015- 2020, Resolution 2015-9. Motion carried unanimously.

13.  Supervisor Gunder informed the Board that we were going to submitting a grant application to DCED for a sludge tank, but the project would not qualify. So the engineers for Penn National are going to keep their eyes open for grants that we could apply for since they have the information readily available to them. Carroll Wilhide also suggested looking at the cost of injection application for sludge. Since we could not apply for a grant for a sludge tank, we submitted a grant application for a Park Enhancement grant. Melanie Kessler has reviewed and asked for additional quotes which we are providing.

14.  Supervisor Bumbaugh also informed the Board that the 25 in 25 Grant we applied for to clean up tires we did not receive, but will keep looking for more opportunities to apply for available grants.

15.  There was nothing during the period of final comment

16.  The meeting adjourned on a Gunder/Bumbaugh motion at 7:37 pm.
