No new building permits issued in Eldred Township
Ellerslie Helm, the Eldred Township zoning and codes enforcement officer reported at the last Eldred Township board of supervisors meeting that for the month of May, the township:
• issued no new building persists
• issued one driveway permit
• conducted 19 site surveys.
A certified letter was sent to Mr. Knowles on Silver Spring Boulevard with no response; a letter was sent to Mr. Donschietz concerning an abandoned truck which has been resolved; he is reviewing a complaint of trash accumulation on Meixell Valley Road with a letter having been sent.
Helm and the roadmaster, Keith Kuehner, viewed several locations in the township including a water problem on Engler Lane, which was corrected, and another of the bridge on Bollinger Road where part of the wall has separated, with no decision made yet on how to fix it.
Kuehner said the township road crew is replacing road signs, patching and mowing.
The board approved the Walter Mock Park land development plan, 3-0, with some conditions, after four waivers were submitted and approved. The conditional use was granted along with any conditions that might arise as a result of the hearing on Wednesday, July 3 at 7 p.m. regarding steep slope conditions on a portion of the Walter Mock Park and when any outside agency reviews (specifically the Monroe County Conservation District) are approved.
The board approved, 2-0, St. Matthew's UCC's minor subdivision and land development plan. Gretchen Gannon Petit abstained because she will be the new owner of the former Jupiter Tavern. St. Matthew's purchased the Jupiter Tavern property in order to obtain a half-acre parcel that would be necessary for the church to be able to build a proposed addition.

• the seal coat bid to Dosch King at $40,975.44, the lowest of three submitted bids at a square yard unit price of $2.04.
