Linglestown Gazette: Lower Paxton watchdog, Oct. 2010

Lower Paxton watchdog, Oct. 2010

Below are highlights from recent Lower Paxton Township meetings:

Initial earth moving is expected to start soon in Brightbill Park for the Dauphin County Heroes Grove, a tribute to the county's military veterans, law enforcement officers, firefighters and other emergency responders. The tribute will feature an amphitheater in a one-acre grove donated by Lower Paxton Township near the Friendship Community Center.



Township officials continued discussions on a proposed storm sewer project in Linglestown that could destroy a historic spring.

Property owner Michael Pinci presented documentation identifying the spring on his property as a historical site. After a heated discussion between Pinci and his neighbors, a township staff member offered a solution that appeared to satisfy all concerned.

The township is awaiting state approval to move forward with the revised plan.

The township supervisors approved a bond refinancing that is expected to save $318,000.



Work has begun on the 2011 township budget, and tentatively no property-tax increase is planned. A final draft budget will be reviewed at the Nov. 9 workshop meeting.

A township staff member offered a solution that appeared to satisfy all concerned about the storm drain that would destroy the historic spring that was a part of the history of the Reformed/Lutheran/Episcopalian/Presbyterian church that is now St. Thomas United Church of Christ. I'm the Chair of the History Preservation Committee of St. Thomas UCC. We'd like to know about the solution that was offered.

Kathie, you're best bet is to contact the township office for detailed information at (717) 657-5600.
