New Milford Twp. On Empty

There were a few people out to the New Milford Township monthly supervisors meeting on February 19. The meeting had been rescheduled and advertised to take place on this Wednesday over a month ago. Present at the meeting were supervisors Franklin Gulick and Jim Hunter. Roger King was out of town and could not attend.

Carol Smith, secretary/treasurer for the township reported there is $539.58 in the township's checking account, $1039.00 in the Money Market Account and $22,647.13 in the General Fund. Although that may sound like a good sum of money for an individual, it is not for a township. Gulick announced that almost of all of material that was put in for winter road maintenance has been eaten up because of the difficult winter we have had since the Christmas snowstorm. With money short, two of the township's men will be hired on an "as needed" basis and the township will be applying to People's National for a loan of $25,000. No one in the room disputed this has been a hard winter for this township. Normally, the township can make it through until Liquid Fuel money becomes available, but that is not the case this year.

Susky Hears Acts Of Kindness

The February 19 meeting of the Susquehanna Community School Board began with a discussion as to the timeliness of board members receiving their packets.

The other board members had all received theirs on the Saturday prior to the meeting, as usual. Mr. Downton noted that, although his packet was postmarked February 14, there was an additional postmark on the back, dated February 15, from Starlight (Mr. Downton lives in Starrucca). Agreeing that the packet must have been mis-directed, Mr. Downton nevertheless abstained from most of the motions brought to the floor, as he felt that he did not have sufficient time to review the material.
