RANSOM TWP. — The property numbering signs offered for sale by the Newton-Ransom Volunteer Fire Company are now available at the municipal building on Hickory Lane, the board of supervisors announced at its regular meeting on May 4.
Per the passage of a house sign ordinance at last month’s meeting, the signs are required to be installed at all properties in the township. They can be purchased during regular office hours for $10, with profits benefiting the fire company.
The supervisors also announced the township office will have Saturday office hours from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. from June through September.
During the police report, presented by South Abington Township Police Officer Siegler, several residents complained about speeding on area roadways. He agreed to pass the information along to the chief.
Siegler reported last month’s calls included a criminal mischief complaint involving juveniles at an abandoned property on Community Drive, two possible child abuse cases on Ransom Road and an arrest made regarding a theft at the mobile home park.
During public comment, Bill Auriemma asked the supervisors if there is anything new to report on the Ransom Recreational Shooting Sports land development plans, which the developer withdrew one year ago, intending to resubmit with revisions. The board said nothing new has been submitted on behalf of the developer.
Roadmaster David Bird gave the road report, stating bids are out for the township’s four upcoming projects. The bids are to be opened at the June 1 meeting.
This month’s recycling date is May 22.
Spring cleanup dates for Ransom Township are set for 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, May 15 and 7 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 16.
The next regular township meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday, June 1 at the Mount Dewey Community Hall.
