|Gregory Duncan wants to reline concrete drainage to Monocacy Creek, near Route 191|
Commissioner Michael Hudak asked that Manager Howard Kutler send a letter to PennDot advising that the Township is "not interested, but thank you." With no discussion, Hudak's motion passed unanimously. It had been the subject of an executive session earlier that night.
This decision ends the possibility of a land swap with developer Lou Pektor. He has a contract to purchase about 25 acres from Central Moravian Church, located next to Housenick Park. He had proposed a land swap for the larger PennDot tract.
“I don’t think the township or any municipality wants to be in the real estate business,” President Paul Weiss had previously said, He also had concerns about the legality of any land swap.
Commissioners will meet again on Monday, May 20, 7 PM, at the Municipal Building, located at 4225 Easton Avenue.
Updated 11:15 AM. In my original report. I referred to a "re-alignment" of the creek. I misheard Mr. Duncan.
Updated Saturday, May 11, 4 PM: I made a few more corrections.
