Three modifications were made to the Diaz Family Land Development Plan, and were approved Monday at the Bridgewater Township supervisors meeting.

Supervisors reported that the road crew began clearing snow from Sunday’s storm at 3 a.m. that morning in order to have roads clear for school buses and drivers. They reported an average of five inches of new snow had fallen.
The Shady Lane Mobile Home Park had a license approved with no objections from supervisors. A one lot subdivision was approved for a Stankiewicz property was also approved with no objections.
Bridgewater Township’s annual audit is complete for 2018, and will be presented at the regular meeting on Monday, April 1. Township secretary Connie Ely said that the team of township auditors has spent many hours checking every item.
The supervisors approved a donation of $100 to the Susquehanna County Conservation District Envirothon.
Ely suggested the purchase of three file resistant file cabinets for the municipal building. She said an office furniture company has some used file cabinets available at a considerable savings, and can deliver them to the township building. Cabinets that usually retail for more than $500 were available for about $150.
Supervisor Kirk Heffner suggested getting four file cabinets so that there wouldn’t need to be a major culling of files. The supervisors approved the purchase of four fire-resistant locking file cabinets.
The township will also be looking to buy a fire alarm system that directly alerts the local fire company.
