Eatonville bridge project a go

After about seven or eight years in the works, a project to restore the old Eatonville Bridge looks like it is a go.
Eaton Township supervisors announced Monday night that the township had received a federal grant to complete the project as part of the Seneca Trail plan that had been in the works.
Supervisor Paul Rowker noted that both private and corporate monies had been expended in the grant application process and the township was pleased to see the bridge will soon be restored.
Rowker said, “We’re hoping to put the project out to bid soon, with work to begin in the summer.”
“We are very pleased,” he added.
In the reorganization part of the meeting Monday night, the township structure looks pretty much as it did a week earlier.
Randy Ehrenzeller is chair once again with Paul Rowker as vice chair and Ken White as roadmaster
Brenda Novak, who replaced long-time secretary Barb Truax in the fall, will continue as secretary-treasurer with the board setting the treasurer’s bond at $600,000.
Although the group met Monday, its regular meeting time will continue as the first Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m.
The supervisors chose June 8 as the annual clean-up day with more details to follow.
All bank accounts will remain the same with signatures the same, although Ehrenzeller noted he would like to open a new account with PS Bank which is sited in the township, and just opened a month ago not too far from the entrance to WalMart.
Supervisors authorized the appointment of Lochen & Chase as a certified public accountant to handle an audit of the 2012 books.
They also authorized Ken White to serve as a voting delegate at the PSATS convention in Hershey in April.
