Osceola Township supervisors agreed to hire two part-time, as-needed employees during the June 11 meeting. They will be paid $12.75 per hour.
The township will purchase material to make repairs on Seeley and Mutton Hill Roads, and rent a vibratory roller to aid in the repairs.
Supervisor Sam Baker reported that work will begin soon on the Holden Brook where flooding has destroyed the repairs made in 2019. The damage, said Baker, is a priority and will be contracted out due to the size of the project. Other areas of flood damage will be addressed in the stream as part of the Stream Improvement Projects funded by the state according to Baker.
Supervisors agreed to pay Louie Marzo for a February 2020 invoice based on rates set by the 2019 contract.
No contract has been established for 2020 for equipment rental from Marzo, who serves as roadmaster for the community.
The board held a short executive session for legal matters, but took no action.
During the meeting supervisors agreed to look into developing a permanent recycling location as the current hauler is no longer doing curbside collections.
Monitoring the collection is a concern, and the township may use cameras to monitor the recycle bins.
The Osceola Township supervisors are scheduled to meet at 6 p.m. July 9.
