It’s an exciting time to be in the Township, we are always striving to bring more services to our residents. The Township has moved forward after years of research, we looked at buying a new building at the cost of 6 million, or redoing our existing building for 2.5 million. The Township decided on buying the former Parkview Church building on Farrell Rd for 1.1 million.
This building brings exciting new possibilities for our Township future programing. The new building sits on over 7 acres. We will now have enough room for the Supervisor, Assessor’s and Clerks office with plenty of space for our record storage and future expansion. The new building lends itself to possibly having the food pantry & meals on wheels programing. We will now have a 3000 sq. ft. community center. The property also has a heated pole barn to house our 2 senior buses.
This spring will be working with the architectural firm from Dewberry to do the renovations needed to accommodate our offices. We are planning on starting construction this summer, and possibly moving in early fall.
This past fall I was able to attend a seminar on senior community centers. Did you know that the biggest area of population growth is in seniors 85 and over, thanks to medical services and better eating habits, we are all living longer. We feel it’s important to help our senior stay healthy. Last fall we started a pilot program to provide shingle shots to seniors. We helped cover the cost so 25 of our residents could receive the shot. It is on a first come first serve basis. We felt it was a very successful program and this year we plan on providing the same program each quarter of our fiscal year.
