‘No windmills’  

Supervisor Dennis Feerrar said residents continue to receive fliers warning that a wind turbine project will soon be underway in the township.

“I’ll tell you one more time: There are no windmills coming to Black Creek Township,” he said.

One of the reasons developers are avoiding the township, Feerrar guessed, is because the township asked them to put up a $5 million bond for each wind turbine.

“At the end of the 25 years, when the life of the windmill goes away, they would be responsible for taking them down. They didn’t want to do that,” he said.

With summer just around the corner, the Black Creek Township board of supervisors announced ongoing and upcoming seasonal activities.

The township’s pool in Fern Glen is open weekends and will be open daily beginning June 10, according to supervisors’ Chairwoman Bonnie Adams.

Daily and seasonal passes are available, and the pool’s schedule is based on weather conditions, she said.

Adams also noted that the Summer Food Service program will kick off June 22 from the township’s Alumni Park.

The federal program provides free nutritious lunches to children up to the age of 18, and will be offered weekdays through Aug. 14.

There are no income guidelines, she said.

“A lot of times, after they have their lunch, we have arts and crafts with them so they can enjoy the park,” said Adams, who is a member of the recreation commission.

Adams announced that the township’s Fourth of July celebration will be held June 27 at the park.

“There will be cars – hopefully a lot of cars, as well as food, rides and games,” she said. Fireworks begin at dusk. The event is sponsored by the recreation commission.

In another matter, Supervisor Dennis Feerrar said residents continue to receive fliers warning that a wind turbine project will soon be underway in the township.

“At the end of the 25 years, when the life of the windmill goes away, they would be responsible for taking them down. They didn’t want to do that,” he said.

Feerrar also announced that residents might receive correspondence from PPL advising them of tree cutting in the area.

The township has maps of the proposed areas, he said.
