The board tabled the request for approval for the Jack Williams Tire & Auto Service land development plan until the May 14 bill paying meeting at 7:30 a.m. The proposal is to build a store located on Rt. 209 between Brodheadsville Chevrolet and the Dollar General store.
Resident Stuart Thody expressed concerns about the exits along Rt. 209.
"I think the worst exit is coming out of Dollar General," he said.

The board approved, 3-0, to give a donation of $500 to Kettle Creek, an amount that was budgeted.
