"Small PA communities say no to stormwater mandate"

Ad Crable, Staff Writer, The Bay Journal

At a joint public meeting, officials agreed to suspend paying for engineering and bidding work on a planned joint $2.3 million stormwater project until state environmental officials, as well as Gov. Tom Wolf, answer questions. They also urged the six other townships and boroughs in Franklin County to join the mini revolt.

Greencastle suspended its collection of stormwater fees, and Antrim Township delayed its planned fee collection.

“We don’t like to waste money,” said Brad Graham, Antrim Township administrator. The township must reduce sediment by 245,000 pounds. It had requested a waiver from the state, but it was denied.

Graham said the decision to stop work on the stormwater project wasn’t made flippantly, and officials realize they could be found in noncompliance.
