Old Business
Sewers – Work has begun on Indian Springs Road. The main line is underground and will not disturb the
road. The line to each home and the grinder pump will be dug up. The permit from Pendot for Shore
Drive has not yet been obtained. The plant is under construction on Billings Mill Road. There have been
more costs and most of the surplus money has been spent. There was $30,000.00 set aside. The first 50
feet from the main line to your grinder pump is covered. The homeowner is responsible for anything over
that. More than one buiulding can share a pump on the same property, however each unit pays the
monthly fee. At the April 13, 2021 meeting there was a discussion regarding out buildings. Every home
is charged the same fee. It is not based on usage. The sewer authority meets on the first Thursday of ther
month at the Tunkhannock Township building and everyone is urged to attend.
