Cecil Township supervisors

• Date: April 1

• Action: Supervisors set a pair of public hearings starting at 6 p.m. April 22 in the township meeting room, the first of which will deal with a new property maintenance code ordinance. The second, to be held immediately following the first public hearing, will deal with a conditional-use application for In and Out Grocery for installation of a canopy and gasoline dispensing pumps. The grocery is at 3369 Millers Run Road, and the applicant is Sagar Ukani.

Supervisors agreed to submit a grant request through the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources for additional development in Klinger Park, off Klinger Road near Southpointe. The five-member board also authorized the township engineer to prepare plans and cost estimates for the DCNR grant for an amount not to exceed $3,500, and authorized Don Gennuso, township manager, to hire a cerftified appraiser to provide information for the DCNR grant applications.

Superviors approved a subdivision plan for Quattro Investment Group for the first phase of a three-building office complex in Southpointe II West Plan.

The board accepted a bequeathed amount of $11,851 from the estate of Geraldine Checca, with the money to be spent on recreation.

Supervisors extended the lease of the former municipal building for use by District Judge Valarie Costanzo until December 2013, at the same rate on a month-to-month basis. Gennuso said the township is in need of expanded space for the public works department and is considering using the space now occupied by the magisterial office.
