News-Herald (Perkasie, PA) - - FRONT PAGE - By Bob Keeler

First, the vol­un­teers tak­ing part in this year’s West Rock­hill Town­ship Clean Up Day helped the town clean up trash from road­sides.

Now one of the win­ners in a draw­ing for $50 prizes to four of the vol­un­teers is help­ing the town clean up finDnFLDOOy Ey UHWuUnLnJ WKH SULzH money.

This year’s draw­ing win­ners in the un­der age 18 cat­e­gory were Ri­ley Wil­liams and Luke Dixon. The win­ners in the adult cat­e­gory were Tom Walker and Bill Roth. The draw­ing, by Shari Frerichs, one of the event co­or­di­na­tors, took place at the June 19 West Rock­hill Town­ship Board of Su­per­vi­sors meet­ing. Dixon, Walker and Roth were present at the July 17 board meet­ing for the prize pre­sen­ta­tion.

Af­ter the pre­sen­ta­tion, Roth said he and his wife en­joy the town they moved to in 2011 and use James Me­mo­rial Park al­most ev­ery day.

“We would like to do­nate this back to parks and recre­ation,” Roth said.

West Rock­hill’s clean up day is held each year in April and is part of the Great Amer­i­can Cleanup of Penn­syl­va­nia.

“I want to thank ev­ery­body for par­tic­i­pat­ing,” West Rock­hill board Chair­man Jay Keyser said.

In other mat­ters at the July 17 meet­ing:

• 3UHOLPLnDUy/finDO DSSURvDO wDV

given for three small ad­di­tions to A&T Chevro­let on Beth­le­hem Pike.

The plans in­clude an 873-square-foot canopy, a 672-square-foot show­room ad­di­tion and a 125-square­foot façade ad­di­tion.

• BUDFDOHnWH &RnVWUuFWLRn Inc. was the win­ning bid­der, with a price of $82,791, to repave But­ter Creek Road.

The town­ship had asked for bids to do ei­ther the two ends of the road or the en­tire road and Bra­ca­lente was the low bid­der in each case, WRwnVKLS RI­fiFLDOV VDLG. 6Lx bids were re­ceived.

Bra­ca­lente’s bid for do­ing the two ends, rather than the en­tire road, was $71,520, but the dif­fer­ence in the cost be­tween the two op­tions was small enough to make it a bet­ter deal to do the en­tire road, board mem­bers said.

“For that kind of money, you don’t piece it to­gether,” Keyser said.

“We haven’t done any­thing on that road for a long time,” board mem­ber John Mann said.

The repaving was sched­uled to be­gin July 24.
