CLARKS GREEN- Council voted to adopt the AbingtonRegional Wastewater Authority (ARWA) Joint Treatment Agreement, at the May 15 meeting of the Clarks Green Borough Council, and voted to approve the second part of the debt ordinance.
The debt ordinance involves two loans needed for the new sewer plant’s construction. Each participating member of the AbingtonRegional Wastewater Authority, including Clarks Summit, South Abington Township and Clarks Green, would only be responsible for their share of the debt, should the authority be unable to repay. Clarks Green’s share would. 9.4 percent.
The next step is for the authority to submit plans for the loans to the Department of Community Development for approval. The groundbreaking for the project was May 30.
Council also voted to hire a new full time Department of Public Works (DPW) employee, Michael Pehonich. Council member Alan Hughes reintroduced the topic of seeking a comparison of prices for alternate electricity providers. He and other member of council agreed to gather more information and present it at the next work session.
