The first regular meeting of the Polk Township Supervisors for 2010 was of about 20 minutes duration.

Among the items at hand were two letters which encouraged further township action or current support. One was a letter from Gary Hoffman, Director of Communications at the county control center, suggesting that the township support the inclusion of electricity as part of the state's bid for items and supplies.

The second was a letter from Mary Ellen Higgins asking the supervisors to "consider endorsing the proposed Kittatinny-Shawangunk National Raptor Migration Corridor," a 250 –mile-long geologic feature that hosts an astounding amount of migrating raptors, counted as between 15,000 and 20,000 numbers and representing some 16 different raptor species.

The trio agreed to think about it until next time.
