1.      Meeting of Quincy Township Board of Supervisors was called to order at 8:32 am. by Supervisor Gunder with employees, Ed Wilson & Joe Schorn, Lee Royer,  Merle Holsinger and two representatives from PSL present.

      2.      There was no public comment.

      3.      The Minutes of July 3, 2012 were approved on a Sanders/Bumbaugh motion. Motion carried unanimously.

      4.      Quincy Village Financing Resolution Hearing was called to order. Jonathan Cox from Rhoads & Sinon, counsel to M & T Bank, informed the Board that Malpezi was representing the borrower and Barbara Beckman from Philadelphia is the bond counsel for Quincy Sewer Authority. John Cox explained why the public hearing was being held and being no public present a Bumbaugh/Sanders motion approved closing the public hearing with no comments. Motion carried unanimously. PSL being a 501 c3 organization they would like to request that the Quincy Township Supervisors authorize the Quincy Sewer Authority to issue the obligation for PSL. The resolution being signed will give the Authorization. The Quincy Sewer Authority is a conduit issuer for the obligation. The Township and Authority will be indemnified. The scope of the project is to renovate the Health Center and personal care side of the facility, also do some renovation in West Penns Boro Township facility and refinance the current M & T loan. The decision was made to approach Quincy Township and not go back to Waynesboro because of the good relationship that Quincy Village has with the Township. PSL does not expect any problems at the hearing in West Penns Boro Township. Quincy Sewer Authority will receive a fee of around $25,000 for the issuance. The Sewer Authority approved the issuance at their meeting on June18, 2012. August 15, 2012 is the possible closing date. A Bumbaugh/Sanders motion approved Resolution 2012-6, and authorizing Supervisor Gunder signing anything later that needs to be signed on behalf of the Supervisors and the Sewer Authority. Motion carried unanimously.

      5.      Tomstown TCE Water System Update, we have received comments from Soil Conservation before receiving permit for Tarman Springs. Those are being addressed and should be resolved in the next two weeks. Supervisor Gunder talked to Milton Knouse about the easements and the family would like to have two tap fees as the payment for the easements. Supervisor Gunder ran the model that was received from Horn and company that the easements are worth one tap fee. A Sanders/ Bumbaugh motion approved Bob agreeing to one tap fee for Knouse Fruitlands and if need to negotiate for the easement within reason. Motion carried unanimously.
