91 Tons of Scrap Metal Collected in Greenfield


During Greenfield Township’s cleanup day on April 27, 221 tires and 91 tons of scrap metal were collected, township officials reported at their June 4 meeting. Statistics on the other items gathered are still being calculated. Matt Treon, chairman, said he wanted to “thank everyone who helped us.”

No applications were submitted to the township to fill a summertime road maintenance position. Joe Claar, supervisor, agreed to assist with tasks in emergency situations while the position remains open.

The name Archery Lane was approved for a driveway serving two homes near Champion Drive.

The board reviewed a memorandum of understanding with the Claysburg-Kimmel School District in regards to police service. The agreement is signed by the police chief on a bi-annual basis. In addition, a cost estimate for the school resource officer position for the upcoming school year was deemed to be in line with previous budget projections.

The police department received 172 calls for service during the month of May.

Ongoing proposals to adjust the configuration of a portion of France Street were discussed. A workshop with township staff, engineers, PennDOT and other officials is being considered to study the issue and would then be followed by a community meeting.

A Letter of Map Amendment related to FEMA floodplain classification at property owned by Adam Whetstone was discussed by the township’s engineer.

During the treasurer’s report, it was noted that budgeted donations had been made to the Claysburg Area Pubic Library, Blair County Law Enforcement Memorial and Blair County Crime Solvers.

Prior to the beginning of the meeting, and again at its conclusion, closed-door meetings were held by the supervisors to discuss personnel matters.
