Country. He is currently a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army serving at

•Birmingham Township is adding some
culvert cleaning to its Spring Road Program. Supervisors voted 3-0 on Feb. 21
to add up to an additional $1,300 cost estimate to the program to inspect and
clean three culverts, two on South New Street and one on Meetinghouse Road.
Supervisors’ Vice Chairman Bill Kirkpatrick said the cost “would increase by a
magnitude of $1,300” if the township had the job done after the road repairs
were made.
Supervisors also voted to add a $20 fee to the fee schedule so the tax
collector can charge mortgage companies for duplicate tax bills. The fee had
already been charged, but was not on the fee schedule.
