Francis Fruehan said there are townships that do not read checks but Silver Lake Township has always read all the checks. John Demaree said he felt it was a good idea to read them. Vera Scroggins also felt it was good to read the checks. She also questioned payment made for medical coverage. It was explained it covers employees only and does not provide for family coverage. Vera Scroggins asked about the Act 14 Notices. Francis Fruehan explained that when an area is disturbed DEP required certain paperwork be completed. If an access road is to be located off a township then the gas company must contact the township for a driveway permit. If the access road is off a state road, they must contact the state for a driveway permit. Vera Scroggins asked when was the time an Act 13 Notice was received. Evan Everitt explained the last Act 13 Notice was received last July.
