For Great Bend Township Supervisors, Joe Gaughan, Ron Cranage, Jr., and Sheila Guinan the May meeting followed spring‘s rhythmic pattern: roads, roads, roads. Yes, like spring follows winter, road matters follow spring and focus supervisors’ minds.
Township roads requiring the Supervisors’ attention included Green Valley, Mountain Vista, and Baptist Hill Roads, as well as Bogart Street. Green Valley and Mountain Vista Roads weren’t originally on the agenda, but were added at the last minute per Supervisor Guinan’s request. Their addition to the agenda was made to elicit discussion and propose referral to the Township’s Solicitor.
Joe Conigliaro has been a teacher. He was a School Board member for a while. He’s a fixture at Blue Ridge, and now he’ll be more visible than ever. At the Blue Ridge School Board business meeting on May 6th, Mr. Conigliaro was voted into his latest position as Assistant Principal, in charge of discipline covering all grades from pre-kindergarten through the High School. Almost as an afterthought – in fact, in an addendum to the agenda – he was also appointed to monitor the fitness facility, replacing Alicia Ross, whose resignation was accepted in the same addendum. So what’s next for Joe? Will he be seen mowing the lawns and plowing the parking lots? Or serving up veggies in the cafeteria?
The evening began with a meeting of the Facilities & Grounds Committee complete with a field trip conducted by Maintenance Supervisor Kevin Price to inspect some of the areas that need attention.
