KINGSTON TWP. — The Board of Supervisors on Wednesday night announced an anticipated completion date of its East Center Street replacement project: April 28.

“It is something that we will want to celebrate,” said Supervisor Jeffrey Box. “It’s been a long road.”

The board also approved a payment of $33,511 toward that project, of which the township’s responsibility will be $6,702.40.

In another matter, Kathleen Sebastian, township manager, read a letter of commendation written by Chief of Police James Balavage commending officer Michael Huntzinger for bravery in rescuing two residents at risk of drowning.

“At one point, he himself went under the ice,” said Box, “but he continued in his effort until he knew everyone was safe.”

In another matter, the board approved a motion to sign an agreement with Pennsylvania Department of Transportation pursuant to a grant of $50,000 directed toward upgrading pedestrian crossing signals.

The board also approved a transfer of $26,670 from its general fund to its state liquid fuel fund, to pay for additional salt because of winter weather.

The board approved a motion to appoint a resident to the Planning Commission to serve a four-year term, ending December 2016.

Sebastian announced her intent to advertise for summer recreation staff, which will include a supervisor and several counselors.

The next regular meeting of the Board of Supervisors is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. April 10.
