CWSA retains officers

The 2023 election of Coplay Whitehall Sewer Authority officers was held Jan. 19 during its monthly meeting at the CWSA building on MacArthur Road.

All current members will retain their 2022 positions. Each was voted on and approved.

These positions include Chairman James Hahn, Vice Chairman Paul D. Boyle, Treasurer Joseph Bonshak, Assistant Treasurer Dennis Wehr, Community Affairs Officer Joseph Marx, Secretary Paul Geissinger and Assistant Secretary James Roth.

In other business, Bohler Senior Design Engineer Alec Nahas spoke to the board about two warehouses his group is building at 5101-2 Beekmantown Road. He presented multiple proposals for sewer tie-ins.

The board suggested any option that includes a pump station be eliminated.

The board’s recommendation is for Bohler Engineering to work with CWSA General Manager Matt Harleman on the details, after which they will be presented to the board for approval.

Harleman reported CWSA Attorney Andrew Schantz and UGI personnel worked together to create an encroachment agreement. This is for UGI’s requirement to install a new gas line on Parkway Alley near Jordan Circle. This will be passed on to the board for review.

Harleman also reported the Northampton- Cementon Bridge project bid has been awarded. Work is scheduled to start this spring and last about three years.

Roth reported quotes have been received for a new vehicle, and the recommendation is to purchase a Ford Escape. The board approved the purchase at a cost of $32,600, minus the trade-in. The motion was voted on and approved by the board.

Schantz noted a vote is needed on resolution 382, regarding the disposition of records. The resolution includes an additional retention year. The motion was voted on and approved.
