Township appoints tax administrator
The Eldred Township supervisors, 3-0, approved Resolution 2010-6 to appoint Berkheimer Tax Administrator (Monroe County Tax Collection Committee) as of Jan. 1, 2011 as the Act 32 Collector of EIT tax. Berkheimer is currently serving in that capacity at this time.
The board agreed to hold off on the removal of the stop sign at Church Road until the township's engineer can look at it.
Michael Kaspszyk, the township solicitor, reported that the township has still not received a tender of the deed for the triangle of land off Church Road from St. Matthew's UCC. He plans to contact the church's lawyer, again.
Helen Mackes informed the board that all the American flags that the Eldred Township Historical Society flies from telephone poles throughout Kunkletown have been removed. Out of the 26 that are flown, 22 were in disrepair. She took them to the American Legion Post 927 where they were burned in a flag burning ceremony, the only proper way to dispose of the American flag.
Steve Molo asked for if all the road names in the township have been updated for the new 9-1-1 readdressing project.
Supervisor and township secretary, Sharon Solt said that the road list has been updated and is available to be seen at the municipal office.
Kaspszyk said there will be a public hearing on Wednesday, Nov. 17, at 7 p.m. to enact the 9-1-1 ordinance.
Molo said he spoke with the UPS driver in his area about the 9-1-1 readdressing and he suggested that if ordering anything that needs to be delivered to your home to place your old address on the first line and the new address on the second line.
