Fire Season Approaching
Fire Chief Jeff Fustine reported that the fire fighters have responded to 4
calls in the township since the last meeting. He noted that we are moving into a critical fire season, and cautioned
area residents to be very careful with brush fires throughout the dry
conditions before vegetation begins to grow. The complete details of the township’s burn ordinance may be found on
the township website at www.snydertwp.com .
reported that he has continued to meet with the 4th of July Committee to
develop plans to keep the community safe during the celebration. A request was received from the 4th of July
Committee to ring all the bells in the community before the annual Patriotic
Program begins. The township has an
emergency management siren that may be used that day.
also noted that the annual township clean-up days will be held on April 11 and
12 with the road crew on hand at the township building between the hours of
7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. to accept old appliances, tires and scrap metal along
with other “junk” items. The collection
will not include any household garbage or electronics. Electronics may be taken to Goodwill or
Staples for recycling.
