Greenfield Township Police Officers Looking to Interact with Community


January 17, 2019

Greenfield Township supervisors approved the purchase of an in-car computer system for a vehicle recently added to the police department’s fleet at their Jan. 7 meeting. The system will cost $3,670.

The board discussed potential public relations activities and fundraisers for the police department. Participation at the annual community days, handing out stickers to children and selling T-shirts as a fundraiser were all proposed as potential ways to foster interaction between the police department and community.

Prior to the monthly meeting, the board reorganized.

Matt Treon was re-elected as chairman of the board and Jordan Oldham was re-elected as vice chairman. Treon and Oldham are joined by Joe Claar on the board.

After reviewing letters from attorneys interested in serving the township, supervisors voted to appoint Patrick Fanelli, Fanelli Willett Law Offices, as solicitor. This is a change from last year, when Nathan Karn, Evey Black Attorneys, represented the township. Supervisors cited times when conflicts of interest arose, as Karn is also Blair County solicitor, and cost as factors in their decision. Fanelli already served as solicitor for the township’s union issues.

The township retained Stiffler McGraw as engineering firm and AMED for ambulance service. The Blair County Tax Collection Bureau was reappointed as earned income tax collector.

In a change from previous years, supervisors voted to turn the two election days into vacation days for non-union employees. Officials said that having a polling center at the township office creates a disruption to the regular work day, leading to the decision to close.
