 1.      Meeting of Quincy Township Board of Supervisors was called to order at 8:36 a.m. by Chairman Gunder followed by the Pledge of Allegiance.

           2.      There was no initial public comment.

           3.      The Minutes of August 6, 2013 were approved as written on a Bumbaugh/Sanders motion. Motion carried unanimously.

           4.      Tomstown TCE and Furnace Road Line update. They are fusing the pipe for the connection to Furnace Road and Peiffer Site. Kerry and Bob have mentioned to Phil at Franklin County Planning about receiving the money that we are owed from CDBG, but no one will give us a yes or no answer on whether we will be receiving it soon. Supervisor Bumbaugh would like to wait until next year to overlay Fox Hill Road and Furnace Road and part of Tarman Spring Road.  There was a meeting with DEP on August 15th. They did a site visit at Peiffer and Park Sites and found nothing major to report. DEP and the Supervisors have agreed that memorandums for the record (everything) will be put in writing. This way it could settle from the water line project Condemnation proceedings are moving forward. Stephanie was contacted by the attorney representing Monroe Bricker and we may be able to make a settlement. Also discussion was held on getting water to other building in the Park before grant runs out. We will need to get a UV light at other building. And will have to do quarterly testing on the water there until public water is available.

           5.      The agreement with Karide Family Partnership was discussed. Supervisor Gunder met with Bill Gsell and son.  They agreed to put a thoroughfare in but not at present time. They are also concerned that since zoning was changed the lot sizes have also changed. They will agree to develop five lots and put in a cul de sac. They are going to contact an engineer and see what the development of those five lots and cul de sac would cost. We will not get the agreed upon $10,000 until an agreement is signed. Supervisor Bumbaugh believes if we have not heard d from them in 60 days we should contact them.

           6.      The Board has received a draft letter to be sent to Penn Dot for a Safety Study for Anthony Highway and Slabtown Road from the engineer that represented the Dollar General Development. The Board believes that the last sentence needs to be removed and include that they look at the intersection of Mount Zion Road and Manheim Road.

           7.      Supervisor Gunder gave the Board an update on the progress of the Park. The ball fields will be completed. The walking trail is being worked on, Ed Wilson is working on the bathrooms, Frank Mong is contact a contractor about the fencing. Also James Kauffman has given his permission for his gate to be moved to another location when fence is put in. Supervisor Gunder informed the Board that per Beth’s instructions the appliances do not have to be in the concession stand to meet the grant requirements. Also the problem with not using pressure treated lumber against the concrete has been taken care of. Mike Cermack informed the Board that they could place metal between the wood and the concrete and that would pass inspection. There is an installation inspection needed for the restrooms and plumbing. The garage doors will be put in today and we may need to address a handicap accessible issue.

            8.      Supervisor Bumbaugh informed the Board that we have agreed to pay two days wages to employees who attend the AG Expo next year in Las Vegas. The employees will be responsible for their own transportation and hotel room. We need to address this now because the employees need to register now.

            9.      Supervisor Gunder informed the Board that we have received a thank you from Mont Alto Historical Society for the assistance with moving the Oak Knob Replica and the storing of t.

          10.  Supervisor Bumbaugh stated that we also received a thank you from the Paul Hawbaker family.
