Eaton gets heritage grant
BY ROBERT L. BAKER
Wyoming County Press Examiner
Eaton Township supervisors announced last Tuesday (Feb. 5) that they had been awarded a $3,500 grant from the Endless Mountains Heritage Region
Supervisor Randy Ehrenzeller said the funds would be used to draw up a plan for the Seneca Trail which would be going through the township.
He noted a current configuration would go down Church Road, a part of Rt. 29, Jenks Road and end at the ballfield.
The supervisors voted unanimously to execute an agreement with the heritage region, and Ehrenzeller noted it would require a 50 percent match from the township.
A township resident asked, “Does anyone use these trails?” and then discussion from another attending revolved around the possibility of rejecting the grant rather than “wasting” money.
Supervisor Paul Rowker said he did not see this project as a waste of money but as an opportunity for residents to learn from the past.
In other business, the supervisors appointed John Yablonski to the Zoning Hearing Board to replace Chris Montross who resigned.
They noted it left a vacancy for an alternate on the Zoning Hearing Board.
They also announced that the township’s supervisors along with Monroe’s would be having a special hearing on March 5 at 6 p.m. at the Eaton Twp. building for the purpose of updating their joint zoning ordinance.
