Truax thanked for service

For the first time in 15 years, Eaton Township’s supervisors snuck in an agenda item to lead off the monthly meeting without letting the secretary know it was coming.
They wanted to surprise Barbara Truax with an award of commendation for her outstanding service not just to them but to all of Eaton Township, supervisor Randy Ehrenzeller said.
In addition to a plaque, they gave her a gift certificate to a local restaurant and also promised they would take her out for supper as a final thank you.
Named as the township’s new secretary is Brenda Novak.
Mostly routine business came to the floor last Tuesday night (Oct.2).
Oil & chip bids were announced for work on Goble Road and Frear Hill Road, and after the results were given, Suit-Kote came in the lowest by $3.17.
Supervisor Ken White said the price could be maintained until next year when the actual work will be begun.
Ehrenzeller noted that the final paperwork to fulfill requirements of a DCNR grant looking at the old Eatonville Bridge would be completed soon.
Tony Wisnosky was present regarding a subdivision- sewage issue for a trailer on the flats, and it was resolved.
An additional issue at Eaton corners was presented to the supervisors who said they would look at it and review it.
Wisnosky had a soil scientist with a firm from Forksville with him and she was thanked for her input as well.
Resident Jim Greenley was at the meeting and during the public input part noted that he had heard that a sign variance for People’s State Bank had been turned down.
“We need to be encouraging commerce, not turning them away,” Greenley said.
Ehrenzeller noted that a WalMart sign was now on the Peoples sub-leased lot and the development was under review.
