Antrim sets joint meeting on sewer collections

PAT FRIDGEN, Echo Pilot

Antrim Township Municipal Authority members were invited to a June 10 board of supervisors meeting to learn about another step the township may take to get paid for sewer services. Public works director Carl Rundquist told Rodney Eberly, Bob Coladonato and Dale Hostetter May 19 that they were welcome to attend a presentation by a Philadelphia law firm that specialized in collecting delinquent revenue. Any fees charged would be passed along to the delinquent accounts.

Supervisors Pat Heraty and Fred Young III had learned about the option at a  PSATS conference. Rundquist commented on the firm and the customers.

“Their claim to fame is to sell the property to reclaim the costs. It sure would be nice if they’d all come in and pay their bills.”

The board formally accepted a financing proposal from F&M Bank for the Shanks Church Road sewer bypass and screw press projects, the two major capital improvement projects it has scheduled.

Chad Murray was absent.
