Resolution 23 of 2023 Sewer Rental Fees
By exiting the business of sewer system operation, the Township can better focus on core government functions while ensuring the residents are still offered safe and reliable sewer service by a Commonwealth-regulated utility. In addition, the funds generated by the sale will be used to pay off sewer debt. The sale also allows the Township and ratepayers to avoid future costs of sewer system upgrades. Furthermore, it was concluded that a utility company such as Aqua could maintain the sewer system as it ages at a lower cost than a single municipality.
The Asset Purchase Agreement was approved by the Township Board of Supervisors in December of 2020, but it required further approval at the State level. The sale was subsequently approved by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) in July of 2022.
Yes, but the PUC is not bound by the recommendation of the Administrative Law Judge.
Yes. Board of Supervisors Chair Bill Shoemaker addressed this in the statement on September 26, 2022. The "Outside Date" was extended by Aqua as indicated in this letter. By the adoption of Resolution 11 of 2023, the Board authorized the sending of a notice of termination, which was accordingly sent on April 15, 2023.
