Falls Township is working to make sure its new municipal complex stays on schedule and is built as efficiently as possible, without cost-overruns and delays. The Supervisors approved a resolution during its February meeting to formulate a project labor agreement between Falls and the Pennsylvania Building and Construction Trades Council.
If you could spend $4,000, but know that you would recoup another $70,000 or $80,000 would you do it? The Falls Township Supervisors advanced a measure that’s expected to pay the Township much more than its initial investment. The fiscally responsible board approved a $4,000 proposal from F.X. Browne, Inc. for completion of the Township’s 2016 recycling grant application.
The Falls Township Board of Supervisors set the wheels in motion for improvements to a number of roads in 2017. During its February meeting, the board unanimously voted to authorize advertisement for the 2017 road program. The project will be bid in March and construction is expected to be carried out later this year once bids have been awarded.
Seven Falls Township businesses chipped in $7,000 needed to purchase a replacement K-9 for the Falls Township Police Department. The Board of Supervisors, during its February meeting, approved the K-9 purchase, as well as the cost of four new patrol units and a replacement for a vehicle damaged in a crash. The vehicle costs were included in the Township’s 2017 budget.
With an eye on added safety and support for its police department, the Falls Township Supervisors are considering an ordinance that would require hotel occupants to show valid photo identification prior to renting a room. The Supervisors unanimously voted to authorize advertisement of the ordinance during its February meeting. It will be considered during the Board’s March 21 meeting following discussion and public comment.
At the training site, which has been in the Leeper’s Shopping Center on New Falls Road for six years, pet owners can choose from three levels of obedience, two levels of rally, therapy and agility training sessions. The club is sanctioned by the American Kennel Club and follows its rules and regulations, including the testing and awarding of the AKC’s Canine Good Citizen certificate.
Please be advised that PennDOT will begin construction on the Oxford Valley Road Bridge Project on or about October 31, 2016. Traffic restrictions will be implemented on Oxford Valley Road. Traffic will be maintained over Route 1 for the duration of the project with exceptions of intermittent closures/detours on Route 1 under Oxford Valley Road during nighttime operations to facilitate safe construction practices and requirements.
The Falls Township Board of Supervisors is working with its township engineer and floodplain administrator to obtain flood insurance reductions for residential properties previously deemed to be located in a floodplain.
Falls Township would like to introduce a new directory that local businesses can apply for and be added. This will make searching for companies in our Township that much easier. Hopefully this will be a great resource for residents and businesses alike, and keep the spending local!
