Upper Hanover Fennel Road Bridge Repairs to be Completed this Summer
Written by Candace Perry, Correspondent

            The Upper Hanover Board of Supervisors awarded bids for the first bridge in their bridge repair program at their meeting on Tuesday, April 9.

            The Fennel Road bridge bid was granted to JDI Group of York for $229,932. Work will begin in late June-early July and be completed by August 31.

            The township has a total of six bridges that will need to be refurbished over the coming years at a cost of $3.2 million. Board chair Gene Fried, supervisor Ben Fiorito, and township manager Stan Seitzinger have met with Senator Bob Mensch and Representative Justin Simmons to discuss potential funding opportunities through the state.

            Additionally, bids were awarded to Fares Farhat Construction for $87,654 for bridge maintenance; $143,726 to Shannon Smith Inc. for HVAC and electrical in the municipal building; and $5287 bid to JJ Environmental for removal of the underground storage tank at the municipal building and disposal of the remaining oil for .70 per gallon.

            In municipal authority news, the water main replacement at   3rd and Washington Streets begins next week. Committee chair Fiorito also noted that the authority was having discussions with Knoll about connecting to the public sewer.

            In maintenance news, roads foreman Tom Latshaw reported that his crew had cleaned up numerous trash bags that had been dumped by the Fruitville Bridge.  The bags contained household garbage including envelopes with names on them, which were recovered and passed along to the state police.

            In fire department news, the supervisors determined that the volunteer incentive program contribution for eligible emergency personnel would be $7500 for 35 individuals in the three borough fire departments that serve Upper Hanover. The expense is within the budgeted amount by the supervisors.

            The supervisors also are sponsoring two youths for the State Police Camp Cadet program, which has been learning opportunities with the police since 1995.
