VALLEY VIEW - Hegins Township Supervisors have issued an ultimatum to James Koons concerning the governing body of the Hegins Fire Police.
At Monday evenings meeting, Supervisor Chad Richards told Koons a decision must be made by next month's supervisors meeting. "This has gone on long enough," said Richards. "We need to know what we are doing with the fire police."
Koons said the last he knew the fire company attorney was in the process of changing the by-laws so they could be governed under the fire company. Koons said he would contact the fire company attorney to determine the status.
WILLIAMSTOWN - Food, games, face painting and three giant Hershey Kisses brought children and adults to Immanuel Lutheran Church, 141 Vine St., on Tuesday afternoon, June 4.
The Hershey Kissmobile drew the community's attention to the kickoff program for the Kids Summer Cafe, a continuation of the Williams Valley School District's free and reduced lunch program through the summer months, in addition to promoting the opportunities available at the Milton Hershey School to children from lower-income families.
PINE GROVE - Pine Grove officials asked Schuylkill County Court on Tuesday, June 4, to remove 12 flood-damaged properties the borough now owns from the tax rolls.
In separate but virtually identical petitions for each property, the borough said the properties no longer can be used for anything other than public purposes and, therefore, are exempt from taxation under state law.
They asked the court to overturn the May 8 rulings of the county Board of Assessment Appeals that the properties still should be taxable.
