Winner donates prize back to township
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.
