Solicitor David Backenstoe sees no problems with the FX Browne proposal to design the work at Delps Park from a legal standpoint.

He gave each member of the Lehigh Township Board of Supervisors a copy to also look through. The subject came up at the Sept. 23 supervisors meeting.

The Capital Improvements Plan has been changed to spread out payments for equipment purchases over the next 10 years, township Manager Alice Rehrig said. She wants to show that expenses are level.

A special budget meeting has been scheduled for Oct. 7 at 7 p.m. Rehrig said she began working on the budget.

In other business, all paving has been done on the roads except for some work on Apple Road. Though some patching needs to be done, the paver has been put away for the season.

The application for the Monroe County gaming grant will ask for money for improving the fourth leg at the Cherryville intersection. Turkey Hill is to do three legs.

Also during the meeting, the Lehigh Township Athletic Association requested permission to hold a car show at Indian Trail Park July 25, 2015. It will request the Lehigh Township Historical Society have its museum open. The fire department will have equipment on display. The association will have its own insurance. The request was approved.

Hazardous household waste will be collected at Northampton Community College from 8:30 to 11 a.m. Oct. 11. Use the Green Pond entrance only. Collected will be adhesives, aerosol cans, antifreeze, automotive fluids and cleaners, batteries, compressed gas, fluorescent lights, flammable-combustible fluids, fire extinguishers, herbicides-pesticides, household cleaners, mercury-containing products, motor oil and filters, oil-based paint, pool chemicals and thermostats

New this year is tire collection for a fee of $1. A tire with a rim will be $2 and tractor-trailer tires will be $5. No latex paint will be accepted.

Supervisor Dell Grove received an email that he passed on to Roadmaster Frank Zamadics. It congratulated the township for the good condition of the sports facilities and concluded with "Bryfogle is a gem."

Grove said he wants to get it into the record for the public works department.
