Hanover Supervisors Remember Fallen PSP Corporal

Milite during last winter's salt shortage
Unlike many other local governments, Hanover Township Supervisors remember things like Flag Day or Patriot Day. It has its very own Armed Services Park, If someone like Jared Robinson Brooks attains the rank of Eagle Scout, he is recognized with a proclamation as well as a day named in his honor. So it was no surprise that when Supervisors met on September 23, the first thing they did was offer a moment of silence in honor of fallen Pennsylvania State Police Corporal Bryon Dickson, who was cut down during a shift change the previous week. And when it was over, Chairman John Diacogiannis wiped away a tear.

After this somber start, Supervisors took care of business during a brief meeting.

They accepted the resignation of long-time Planning Commission member Joseph Hilton "with regret," and will be sending him a letter of appreciation signed by each Supervisor.

Township Secretary Lori Stanzl announced that there will be an electronics recycling event at the Municipal Building on Saturday, October 11, between 9 am and 3 pm. Most items can be recycled free of charge.

Supervisor Jack Nagle announced that Trick or Treat day this year will actually take place on Halloween, Friday, October 31, between 6-8 pm.

Public Works Director advised that leaf collection will start on October 13, and continue through December 5. He also reported that this road crew used 400 tons of black top this summer to mill and repair potholes. The Township usually uses only around 100-150 tons, and Milite stated this is another indication of just how bad last winter was.

Nagle asked Milite if he had checked the Farmer's Almanac for this winter's severe weather.

"I don't want to know," he replied.
