East Allen Township Board of Supervisors meets at 7:30 p.m. in the municipal building, 5344 Nor-Bath Blvd.
Last week's article, "Erdo faces challenge in re-election bid; new faces in NASD board race," it was incorrectly stated that candidate Roy Maranki is from Northampton and that he did not provide candidacy information. Maranki is from Allen Township. He was not contacted for the article. The Press regrets the error.
