Stormwater Runoff Tips

A few good habits in gardening and lawn care can be a tremendous help to protecting our ground water resources. From reducing the impact of local area flooding to maintaining the quality of our drinking water, stormwater management is an important part of sustaining the Solebury ecology.

Here's a recent article from Townships Today that summarizes many of the key points to reducing stormwater runoff and protecting the quality of our waterways and ground water. Additional resources can be found here, on the Township's website.

Board of Supervisors' Chair Replies to "Letter to the Editor"

Helen Tai, Chair, Solebury Township Board of Supervisors, sent the following "Letter to the Editor" of The Intelligencer:

Dear Editor –

I would like to respond to the letter submitted by Ron Norton on June 15. Mr. Norton appears to have completely misunderstood, misinterpreted and mischaracterized Solebury’s policies. Resolutions 2016-82 and 2015-161 ensure for the proper disposal of Township property.

First and foremost, a key provision of Resolution 2016-82 is that “No Township staff or official shall be the recipient of any personal property, leaves, trees or branches that is disposed of under this policy or under Resolution 2015-161.” [emphasis added]

Secondly, Township property is disposed of in accordance with state law. Our resolutions require that the Township obtain price quotations or other bids from at least two qualified and responsible individuals or businesses for the disposition of property worth between $100-$1000. The Township Manager may dispose of property valued at less than $100 at his or her discretion, subject to the provision prohibiting transfers to any township staff or officials as mentioned above. 

For property worth more than $1000, the Township also abides by state law, which as Mr. Norton suggests, mandates that items are sold “…to the highest bidder after due notice by advertisements for bids or for public auction in one newspaper of general circulation in the township.”

Both disposal resolutions will be posted at www.soleburytwp.org.  The can be found by clicking Resolution 2015-161 and Resolution 2016-82.

  

Sincerely,

Helen Tai

Chair, Solebury Township Board of Supervisors
