Penn Dot Right-Of-Way Purchase Offer – The Solicitor, Denise Dieter, has reviewed the Penn Dot Right-Of-Way Purchase Offer and confirms that it is in order. She noted that the township retains the mineral rights, which is a plus. She believes as the supervisors agree to the price, it is appropriate to sign the documentation. The Supervisors acknowledged her recommendation and decided to request $1,000. Shelly will contact the PennDot Real Estate Specialist and make the counteroffer.
2018/2019 Salt Contract – Our COSTARS Salt Contract Participation Agreement must be submitted each year for inclusion in the State’s sodium chloride contract. The contract runs from August 2018-July 2019. In order to be included we must commit our needs prior to the contract bid, the deadline is 3/15/18. Our requested tons are not an estimate. We must purchase at least 60% of our stated needs. Suppliers will provide up to 140% of the tonnage requirements. We must specify our Initial Tons Required (defined as the estimated amount of salt required from August 1st to October 31st to replenish/fill stockpiles in advance of the winter season) and Winter Tons Required (defined as the amount of salt required after November 1, 2018 through July 31, 2019). The Initial Tons Required plus the Winter Tons Required will equal the Total Tons Required (defined as the total amount of salt required for the whole winter season). This is to allow suppliers to better plan and anticipate member requirements and will help to ensure members are better prepared for the winter season to cut down on last minute or just-in-time orders. Dean moved that we request 0 (zero) for our Initial Tons Required and 100 tons for the Winter Tons Require, Scott seconded, motion carried.
