Bids Opened For Park Emergency Access
By: Heather Adams
Pike County Dispatch – Thursday, March 5, 2015

 

 

Dingmans Ferry-Delaware Township Supervisors opened bids for the Akenac Park Emergency Access Driveway Project at their regular township meeting last Feb. 25.  Solicitor Tom Farley oversaw the reading of the bids, which were submitted electronically to Engineering Firm Boucher and James.  Nine bids were received, ranging from $71, 943.12 to $193,370.72.  The bids will be reviewed by township engineers and awarded at the next Township meeting on March 11. 

 

Township Fees Updated

 

 The Supervisors adopted Resolution 2015-07, updating the Township fee schedule.  Building permit fees continue to be the same as listed in Resolution 2015-04.  Retired Judge Steven McBride pointed out that temporary signs category excludes political signs.  McBride also questioned the cost of site investigation for water and septic, which was listed as “$50 (minimum per hour)” similarly to spray irrigation, which was listed as “$35 (minimum per hour).”  Farley and the Supervisors thanked McBride for his observation and said they would follow up with the inspectors for clarification and possible amendment.

 

Easter Egg Hunt

 

The Akenac Easter Egg Hunt will take place from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, March 28.  The hunt will begin at 1:15p.m. and the Lion’s Club will provide coffee, tea, and hot chocolate.  Photos with the Easter Bunny and crafts and prizes will be available until supplies run out.  If you have any questions, you can contact the Township Office at 570-828-2347.

PA American Water Hearings

SPEAK OUT ON PENNSYLVANIA AMERICAN'S RATE HIKE
Hearing at Stroudsburg High
by David Pierce
Pocono Record - July 19, 2013

Pennsylvania American's 13,000 Poconos customers won't have to travel far next month to air their views on a proposed water rate hike of nearly 12 percent.

One of seven Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission hearings on the proposed rate changes will take place August 6th at the Stroudsburg High School auditorium on West Main Street.  The hearing begins at 6:30pm.

The private utility seeks a 10% hike in revenues - an additional $58.6 million - from its 2.2 million customers statewide.

Pennsylvania American's local territory includes Mount Pocono, part of Coolbaugh Township, the village of Tobyhanna, and portions of Smithfields and Stroud Township.  It has customers in Saw Creek Estates, Blue Mountain Lake, Rustic Acres, Pine Ridge and Country Club of the Poconos.  There are Pike County customers in Lehman, Delaware and Westfall townships.

A typical residential customer in Monroe or Pike County would see water rates rise by 11.7 % - from $630 to about $703 annually.

A typical residential customer uses 47,520 gallons of water per year.

It would be a completely different story for Poconos sewer customers, whose bills would decrease from $612 to $571 per year.  That's because local sewage systems were added fairly recently to the Pennsylvania American system, company spokesman Terry Maenza said.

The company kept the pre-existing sewer rates in place but now seeks to standardize the rates for all sewer customers statewide.

Testimony at the hearing will become part of the record on which the PUC will rule on the rate requests.

The PUC suggests that those who testify prepare their remarks beforehand and bring copies to the hearing.  Two copies of any written statement should be provided to the court reported transcribing the hearing and other copies should be provided to other parties in the case.  Those who testify might be questioned about their positions.
