I have much more on the Roads Maintenance contract awarding to
come, but first I thought the readers should be updated on the
Weatherstone sprayfield damages. It gets even more interesting.
The more I look, the more I find! Thank you to the new people
sending me tips.
In a recent e-mail, I exposed the fact that West Vincent
Township was wrongly making the Weatherstone residents pay for
damage to the the sewage spray field sprinkler system. What I
disclosed is that the only way damage could have happened is by
a large piece of equipment. The most likely suspect would be
that of the person performing the contracted mowing for the
township, which is paid for by the WeatherStone residents. Who
is the contractor? Chairman of the Board of Supervisors for West
Vincent Township, Ken Miller.
After I published this, at the following township meeting
(August 22, 2011), Ken Miller admitted that TWO of the
sprayheads were his responsibility, stating that, “When, uh, my
son was mowing the spray fields, he knocked two of them off.
Well, I paid the $972 of amount that RJL billed to the township.
The township paid RJL (voice trailing off)...I told the township
they were knocked off the day that I did it, and said
when the bill gets in to get it fixed and let me know. The day
that it was on the bills list the check was already in the
township building.” This quote comes straight from the township
video, and is within the first 55 seconds of the meeting.
So, if Ken's son did the damage, why did Ken say that “I told
the township the day that I did it”? More importantly,
if this was true, when Jim Wendlgass was asked at the prior
meeting about who pays for the repairs, he stated that it is
paid from the Weatherstone Sewage Fund. Certainly, if he had
known, he would have said that Ken Miller (or his son) did the
damage and the township was being compensated. Something smells
and it ain't just the sewage.
The good news is that the Weatherstone residents are allegedly
reimbursed almost $1000. The bad news? I'll talk about that
