WRIGHT TWP. -- A concerned resident made supervisors aware of truck drivers he said are violating a weight limit while using a shortcut to the Crestwood Industrial Park.

At Monday night's meeting, Bob Grobinski of Church Road said truck drivers hauling to and from the Crestwood Industrial Park are disregarding the 10-ton weight limit on Church Road and are also moving too fast.

The road was recently resurfaced, and Grobinski said it is a good shortcut to Oak Hill Road, which leads through the industrial park.

"They know it's a good road and they're booking it," Grobinski said.

He said he and his wife walk and jog along that road and they are concerned someone is going to get hurt. He said he sees officers patrolling the area frequently, but truck drivers are slipping through the cracks.

"The police do a good job, but they can't be there all the time," Grobinski said.

He suggested several solutions to the supervisors, who, in turn, said they would consider them and also reach out to PennDOT to find a suitable solution.

In other business:

•The board received a letter from the U.S. Postal Service requesting a place of refuge for letter carriers delivering in the Mountain Top area to use in bad weather. The supervisors questioned whether the municipal building would, in fact, be a safe place to escape the harshest weather.

Solicitor Michael Kostelansky suggested they advise the post office officials that the township office is not a tornado-proof building.

Chairman Daniel Frascella said officials would send a letter agreeing to let refuge-seeking letter carriers use the township's building to get out of dangerous weather.

•Also, Supervisor Jerry Uram said one vacant position remains on the Recreation Board and any one interested, should contact him through the township office.

What's Next

The Wright Township Supervisors' next meeting is to be held Sept 10.
