Windmill ordinance meeting scheduled  

NOXEN TWP. – Supervisors last Tuesday (Aug. 7) agreed to hold a meeting Aug. 22 about a vacant supervisor’s seat and a proposed ordinance that regulates wind turbines.

The meeting was scheduled after BP Alternative Energy business developer Kevin Davis gave supervisors documents with comments about a proposed ordinance.

The company has expressed interest in building a wind turbine facility on South Mountain in Noxen.

Davis Tuesday said the Virginia-based company is in support of having an ordinance developed.

He added that the company would like to build a facility on the mountain if it is determined that the area has adequate wind resources.

In a letter given to supervisors Tuesday, the company stated that parts of the ordinance is overbroad and not defensible under existing law.

On Tuesday, supervisors also hired Gary Patton to be roadmaster at a $15 hourly pay rate.

Patton, who was the road foreman, is replacing Supervisor Harry Creasing, who at 58 died July 22.

The vacant supervisor position will be discussed Aug. 22, according to Supervisor Thomas Nalbone, Jr.

Noxen resident Denise Hosey on Tuesday submitted a letter of interest for the vacant supervisor position.

Also Tuesday, supervisors awarded a project to Dougherty Construction to repair a bridge on Butry Road that crosses Beaver Run.

In November, township supervisors had 3-ton weight limit signs posted at the bridge.

Nalbone said that the project will cost $16,851 and will be funded with a Pennsylvania Infrastructure Bank loan.

He added that work to the bridge will include the installation of new steel beams.
