ACTION: APPROVAL OF TEMPORARY CONSTRUCTION EASEMENT ON YETTER COURT PROPERTY
Mrs. Trone stated this is the result of the conversation the Board had during the April 18th meeting with Bob Fisher when it was determined we would need a temporary construction easement so they could run the pipe on our property and we had also talked about a permanent storm water easement. When she talked with Lower Allen Township engineers they did not think that was going to be necessary. Mr. Flint said to not ask for anything other than the temporary construction easement license. Mr. Miner stated a “license” is going to end; however, an actual “easement” will not. They only need to be on the property during the construction to install the pipe and when the easement license expires, they will need to be off the property. Mr. Eby stated he believes there has to be a storm water management agreement and post-construction agreement with Stone Gate and Triple Crown that allows us to go back for inspection; this will give another layer of insurance for the Township. Consensus is there needs a discussion between Mr. Flint and Mr. Miner before the Development Authority makes any decision. Discussion ensued. Mr. Eby stated that based on the lack of support of the temporary license agreement and absent of additional information, since there is no motion on the floor there will be no action taken at this time.
NEXT MEETING OF THE DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY
The next meeting of the Development Authority is scheduled for Monday, June 20, 2016 at 6:00pm.
Mr. EBY made a motion to adjourn the meeting. Mr. MARONE seconded the motion. Motion carried, 5-0. Meeting adjourned at 7:15pm.
