Wright Reviews Paving, Planning and Clean Up

The Wright Township Supervisors, under the leadership of Dan Frascella, met on April 8th.

On the agenda were road matters addressed by Donald Zampetti in the absence of Roadmaster Lou Welebob.

Zampetti reported that seven bids were received for the Forest Drive Paving Project. The bids ranged from the high bid of $113,600.90 from C. E. Ankiewicz Construction and Excavation Company to the low bidder, Popple Construction, priced at $82,810.50.

Popple Construction’s low bid was accepted on a motion by Zampetti and a second by Jerry Uram. The vote was unanimous.

Other road matters included a review of MAJSA line replacement work in the Capital Hill area, a subject of complaint at a previous meeting; the maintenance of plows and spreaders for the end of season, and brush cutting.

Zampetti reported that, in addition to an evaluation of spring projects, the Public Works Department has also, “obtained quotes on street sweeper and Gradall work to be done this year.”

Supervisor Candace Smith advised on planning business, stating that the Derwin Holdings Minor Subdivision has been completed and was recorded with the county as required. By motion and vote the plan was removed as an active agenda item.

New business included the notice that a Preliminary Land Development Plan has been submitted for the Dollar General Store. The proposed commercial enterprise is proposed for a location just south of the National Penn Bank on South Mountain Boulevard across from Grouse Hill. The plan was submitted by Pizzman Development, Inc. of Pittston, Pa.

It was noted that the plan will also require zoning hearing board consideration. An application was submitted for a hearing on variances. The hearing will take place on Monday, May 6th.
