DISCUSSION AND POSSIBLE ACTION: APPROVE SERVICE AGREEMENT WITH PENN WASTE, INC FOR $100/MONTH FOR WEEKLY TRASH SERVICE AT UNIT 3 IN LOWER ALLEN COMMONS.
Mrs. Trone explained our lease agreements do not include providing trash for Unit 3; however, she does not feel it will be possible to fit three dumpsters behind the building. Her suggestion is to provide the dumpsters for the building and then charge each of the tenants. Discussion ensued with Campbell Realty representatives. The Board made the decision to not do anything at this time.
- Trone explained to the Board for cash flow purposes, because we have been selling properties, we had discussed this with the Board of Commissioners prior for use of the ARCA funding for the sewer that was installed on the site as one of the potential uses of this money from this funding. She is going to propose at the next BOC meeting, putting in a request for $250,000. This won’t cover all of the costs; however, will help.
- Trone also stated the Development Authority received the Governor’s award for “Excellence in Local Government” for the Lower Allen Commons project; Those attending were: Dean Villone, President Lower Allen Board of Commissioners; Max Stoner, Chairman, Lower Allen Township Development Authority; Erin Trone, Director of Economic Development for Lower Allen Township; H.
