Wright Township Preparing For Seasonal Activities

 

The  Wright  Township  Board  met  on

 Monday,  March  11th,  lead  by  Supervisor  Chair  Dan  Frascella.

In  recreation  business,  the  “ annual  walk-through-the-park”  was  conducted  on  Tuesday,  March  12th  intended

 to  “identify  any  equipment,  items,  etc.  that  need  to  be  repaired,  maintained,

 or  replaced.”

Also,  the  township’s  popular  summer  program  will  lose  one  staff  member  and  the  program  will  be  reduced  to  six  weeks.  Committee  plans

 for  the  Independence  Day  celebration  have  begun  with  the  notice

 that  fund  raising  will  soon  begin  to  augment  the  $1,400  balance  remaining

 from  last  year.  The  costs  of  the  event  are  anticipated  to  increase  by  about  $200  in  2013.

Roadmaster  Lou  Welebob  advised  that

 temporary  cold  patch  road  repairs  have  been  completed  on  Larchmont  Way  along  with  other  pothole

 patching  where  needed.  The  leaf  collection  equipment  received  maintenance  and  repair  before  being

 stored.  A  sign  inventory  was  completed  and  replacements  installed  as

 necessary.  A  base  was  constructed  for

 a  new  equipment  shed  near  the  skating  rink.

 In  addition,  Welebob  issued  a  news

 release  advising  residents  that  the

 Mountaintop  Area  Council  of  Governments’  Compost  Facility  in  the  Crestwood  Industrial  Park  will  be

 open  Wednesdays  and  Saturdays  from  10  am  to  2  pm,  starting  April  3rd  and  continuing  into  November.

Welebob  also  heard  complaints  about  conditions  in  Capitol  Hill  Village

 due  to  main  repairs  to  the  sewer  system.  Welebob  assured  the  residents

 that  he  will  contact  the  Mountaintop  Area  Joint  Sanitary  Authority

 about  restoration  of  the  road  and  rights-of-way  in  the  development.
