In South Annville Township on Wednesday, Dec. 13, supervisors accepted a maintenance bond for Mayapple Phase 1, approved the 2024 budget, and approved the Southgate Sewer Planning Module.

Garman Builders provided a revised maintenance bond, which includes a 15% reduction by $25,127.53 over 18 months, for Phase 1 of the Mayapple project regarding the cost of construction for the right-of-way on Quittie Park Drive. Following approval from township solicitor Josele Cleary and representatives from Rettew Associates Inc., supervisors unanimously approved the acceptance of the maintenance bond.

Allison Garner of Rettew Associates reported that Garman Builders is working on fixing discrepancies between the completed field work and the as-built plan. 

Southgate Sewer Planning Module Resolution #120823 was unanimously approved. Since the Southgate development project has more than 250 homes, it must comply with additional components regarding the sewage plan. The resolution was previously approved by Cleary, Rettew Associates, the township planning commission and Lebanon County.

Garner also reported that the pipe for the replacement on Brandt Road will be purchased in the near future. This project will take place following the conclusion of the school year due to the anticipated disruption to traffic.

The supervisors made no major changes to the proposed budget for 2024 that was advertised at the October and November meetings. The final budget was unanimously approved and contains no tax increase.

The board also discussed the following topics:

  • A conditional-use hearing for Garman Legacy LLC and Candler’s Pointe will be held at the January board meeting.
  • The yearly organizational meeting will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 2, at 7 p.m. at 1042 Horseshoe Pike.
  • Chief Ben Sutcliffe of South Annville Police Department reported that there were 156 calls for service in November.
  • Motions to approve the secretary’s report, treasurer’s report and pay the township bills were unanimously passed.

The Board of Supervisors of South Annville Township meets at 7 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month. Meetings are held in the township building at 1042 Horseshoe Pike and are open to the public. Next month’s meeting will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 10.
