 MABL SUPPORT

The Granville Township Supervisors sent the following memo to Lewistown Borough Council on Friday, February 21, 2020. 

TO:  Lewistown Borough Council

FROM:  Granville Township Supervisors

RE:  Resolutions affecting The Municipal Authority of the Borough of Lewistown

As duly elected leaders of one of the seven other municipalities in Mifflin County served by The Municipal Authority of the Borough of Lewistown (Authority), we are deeply concerned about your recent decisions to effectively stage a takeover of the Authority Board and its assets. 

The effect of your actions clearly is for the sole benefit of the Lewistown Borough.  The obvious intent of your action is to drain from revenues of the Authority to supplement Lewistown Borough’s budget with monies primarily supplied by the ratepayers of other municipalities.  You are using the Authority’s assets as a band-aid for your own fiscal situation at the expense of the residents of the other townships and boroughs served by the Authority.  This action will result in increases in water rates for the 68% majority of the Authority’s customers who reside outside of Lewistown Borough.  These ratepayers will see no return of benefit.  Lewistown Borough alone will see financial benefit from this takeover while our constituents will be left to pick up the tab.

The seizure of all the Authority assets by Lewistown Borough is not in the long-term interest of the Authority’s customers nor for the greater good of Mifflin County.

 The Borough’s decision to benefit itself, at the expense of all the others, must be halted.  We ask that Lewistown Borough Council table its decision to seize control of the Authority.  Furthermore, we would ask that you work with your fellow elected officials and the Authority to find an amicable, long-term solution to this extremely important issue.

By copy of this email, the Granville Township Board of Supervisors call upon the Mifflin County Commissioners and our state elected officials to intervene in this matter to ensure that the best interests of all Mifflin County residents are protected and that such a short-sighted and troubling decision is not allowed to stand.

SNOW REMOVAL MAILBOX POLICY 

We try to avoid damaging anyone’s property. However, mailboxes are often placed in the Township legal right-of-way, which means that the Township is not liable for damages to them caused by snow removal operations. We suggest property owners ensure their mailbox rest on a firm support so it will be better able to withstand the windrow of snow from the plow.
