Chestnuthill Twp. supervisors conditionally approve Brodheadsville Chevrolet's subdivision of property

Published February 09. 2011 05:00PM

At the Feb. 1 meeting of the Chestnuthill Township supervisors, they conditionally approved 3-0 the lot line adjustment of Van and Geralyn Kloiber, when all outstanding fees are paid and when the emergency access language is termed acceptable by township solicitor, Joseph McDonald.

Robert Beers told the board that Sewage Enforcement Officer Helen Beers has refused a sewage permit until a storm water management plan is submitted. He believes she made that decision in error. He believes that only building permits are contingent upon the submittal of a storm water management plan, not a sewage permit. He asked the board to have Ms. Beers attend the next meeting to resolve the issue. It was decided by the board that the issue could be resolved at a workshop meeting.

Andy Bohl from Hanover Engineering made two waiver requests and asked for final plan approval on behalf of Brodheadsville Chevrolet, subdividing undeveloped property on the east side of the dealership on Rt. 209.

The waivers were for:

*moving the plan to a final plan and was approved 3-0

*to allow a sanitary line inside the outer buffer and was approved 3-0

The plan was conditionally approved, 3-0, subject to but not limited to, all outstanding fees being paid and sidewalk details being shown on the plan.

A copy of a letter from the Liquor Control Board that was sent to Mike's Pizza was also received by Attorney McDonald stipulating that if there were any changes made to the character of Mike's Pizza liquor license, they would have to be approved by the board of supervisors.

The next meeting of the Chestnuthill Township Historical Society will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 16 at 7 p.m. at the Chestnuthill Township Park building on Rt. 715.

At the Jan. 18 meeting of the Chestnuthill Township supervisors, the board approved, 3-0, the placement of the conservation easement of a 12.34 acre parcel that is known as the Anewalt property, which was purchased for $120,000 with township funds, several years ago. This property is intended for open space with public access. Conservation Easement will ensure that this property will be used for this purpose. There had been no permanent protection of that property but the easement will see to it that it will not be developed but remain accessible to the public. It is located along Rt. 715 and butts up against a 253-acre open space acquisition the township made in 2009. It is enrolled in the Game Commission Public Access Program.

The board approved, 3-0, to appoint Zelenkofske Axelrod LLC to audit the township's 2010 books, not to exceed $8,500.
