Linglestown Gazette: LP government watchdog

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

LP government watchdog

* At the request of property owners, the township supervisors agreed to submit an application for disaster funding to buy out a flood-prone home at 5805 Linglestown Road. The home (pictured) is located a few feet away from the Paxton Creek and was identified on Linglestown Gazette in 2008 as being an example of poor land-use planning.

According to The Patriot-News, other flood victims in the Harrisburg area also are ready to sell their properties to the government. CLICK HERE for a recent article out of the Wilkes-Barre area that describes how the property-buyout program works.

* In a related issue, several residents lodged complaints Tuesday during a township meeting about flooding and stormwater runoff caused by tropical storms last month. The township will investigate all complaints.

Supervisor Bill Hornung indicated that the current cost estimate of storm damage in the township is $750,000, and the total cost could reach $1.5 million.

* The township supervisors unanimously approved Tavia Larson to fill a vacancy on the Arts Council.
