Thursday, September 13, 2012 by JENNIFER QUINN Special to The Press in Local News

Lowhill Supervisors began their Sept. 6 meeting with a moment of silence and prayers for the family of former administrator and zoning officer, Reynold Reinert, who died last month.

"It will be hard to envision meetings without him at the table," Township Solicitor Charles Waters said, adding the township lost a good friend.

Later in the meeting, the board appointed Keystone Consulting Engineers as interim zoning officer, represented by Roy Stewart.

Chris Noll will represent Keystone as interim sewage enforcement officer, and Secretary and Permit Clerk Judy Hoffman will serve as interim administrator.

Chairman Eugene Weiner also asked that these positions be shared with Weisenberg Township at a fee to be determined.

Buddy Wessner of Stone Haven Supply asked for a letter of approval from the township in support of his application to be authorized by the Department of Environmental Protection as a yard waste recycler.

"I haven't heard any complaints," Vice Chairman Richard Hughes said.

Weiner added he had heard good things.

Secretary Jill Seymour was instructed to draft a letter of support, to be approved by Waters.

In other business, bids were considered by the board for the Winchester Road Bridge project.

Minici Inc. of Dupont, was recommended as the lowest bidder, pending approval by Stewart.

Sharp Energy was selected as the propane supplier, having submitted the lowest bid based on the day's price.

Supervisors also noted Sharp is located in the township.

The board set fines under the burn ordinance at a minimum of $500 and a maximum of $1,000, as recommended by Waters after checking the township's ordinance.

Road Supervisor Carl Kressley said a sign was placed on Hickory Road prohibiting tractor trailers.

The board approved a $600 donation to Meals On Wheels and set budget meetings for the first Mondays in October and November.
