New Hanover to File Complaint with Supreme Court on Quarry Engineers
Written by Candace Perry, Correspondent

            The saga of the Gibraltar Rock quarry continues for New Hanover Township, this time with a complaint to be filed against representatives of the engineering firm involved with the quarry's legal proceedings.

            The New Hanover Board of Supervisors authorized solicitor Andrew Bellwoar to proceed with the filing over ethics violations at their meeting on Thursday, October 7.

            The complaint will be made against the firm, EarthRes, with the Disciplinary Board of the state Supreme Court, which oversees these types of professional objections. The complaint focuses on misinformation that was presented at the quarry testimony in front of the zoning hearing board.

            Bellwoar stated that the township should "simply present the facts."

            In other legal news, Bellwoar reported that a new lawsuit had been filed against the supervisors and the township by the Sassamanville Fire Company. The supervisors voted at a recent meeting to remove language regarding the fire company, which is no longer actively engaged in firefighting, from the township ordinance.

            In public works news, director Jay Kowal said that his crew had finished storm damage repairs from September 1 and were working on the clean-up of the recreation center to prepare for the renovation to house the police department.

            Township manager Jamie Gwynn reported on his extensive difficulties in getting County and PennDOT officials to respond to issues with road repair, closures, and problems with road projects that are not the township's responsibility. He said he is working with Senator Bob Mensch's office in an effort to set up meetings.

            In other news, the supervisors approved the removal of language from the township ordinance regarding restrictions on bees and beekeeping.  Residents can now keep bees on smaller lots throughout the township.

            Andrew Bellwoar reported that the supervisors met in executive session on September 25, prior to and after the October 7 meeting to discuss litigation.
