DONALDSON – Frailey Township supervisors will go back to the drawing board on a developing drainage problem on West Center Street.
Township secretary Donald Allar spoke about the problem at the June 7 meeting, at a home in the 400 block of West Center Street.
“We inherited the problem and the drains and now have to fix it.”
The township talked with a contractor who quoted them a price of $13,737.70 to install new drains and fix the problem. Under township code, any project that costs more than $10,000 must have three phone quotes for it, or put it out to bid.
Allar said that he will go back to the contractor to see if the project can go under the $10,000 limit to eliminate the red tape.
Township officials noted that fire hydrants will be flushed in Donaldson on Wednesday evening from 6 to 8 p.m., and that road pavings forced the closure of Railroad Street and Harrison Street on June 14 for paving.
Allar reported to supervisors Donald Allar, Jack Barnhart and Keith Allar that the new security cameras have been installed at the township building, which can help monitor the recycling area as well for any trash drop offs
“These cameras are so good, they can read the bar code clearly on a box,” the secretary said.
