Board of Supervisors Meeting

The Board of Supervisors meeting scheduled for April 28 has been canceled. The Board held a successful virtual meeting on Tuesday and thanks the community for its understanding of the need for the different approach.

The Board of Supervisors held their April 14, 2020 Meeting virtually for the first time. During the meeting the Board was provided an update by Emergency Management Coordinator, Frank Baxter and Police Chief, Paul Kenny, on the “state” of Lower Gwynedd Township during the COVID-19 epidemic. The Finance Director, Chuck Wilson, provided the financial position of the Township with the Year-End Financials for 2019. The Township Manager, Craig McAnally, reviewed the Declaration of Disasters for COVID-19 for LGT along with the above mentioned Real Estate Tax Extension in 2020 for all property owners of Lower Gwynedd Township. The Township Engineer reviewed the bids for the Road Program and the Board accepted the bids but removed several “alternates” that will be addressed on a future road program. The amount of the bids will match the Liquid Fuels Funds received by LGT which can only be used for expenses associating with improving roadways.

The Board thanks all who participated in the meeting.
