CWSA hears customer concern

During the May 18 Coplay Whitehall Sewer Authority meeting, Allentown resident Fayez Antonios addressed the board regarding an issue he has with CWSA.

Antonios said he sent an email to Whitehall Bureau Chief Lee Rackus asking CWSA to expedite the approval process necessary for him to build a home on a subdivision in Whitehall Township. This letter was distributed to all board members at the meeting.

Antonios stressed his disappointment in CWSA’s phone call response, which he felt was unprofessional as no timeline was given. The board did not comment on the matter.

General Manager Matt Harleman reported the audio system in the board meeting room was completely rewired. Harleman thanked Micro Innovation and Joseph Marx for facilitating it.

Harleman also reported Taylor Villas III requested its letter of credit for the sewer construction cost to be reduced from $171,600 to $141,400. This item was added to the agenda, and the motion was approved.

A vote was taken by the board to hire Jacob Klinger as a CWSA summer intern. The motion was approved, and he was set to begin May 22.

Another vote was taken by the board to authorize Attorney Andrew Schantz to sign an agreement regarding the storm sewer pipe between Whitehall Township, Scheuermann Excavating and Spotts, Stevens and McCoy. The motion was carried.

CWSA will next meet 7 p.m. June 15 in the public meeting room of the Coplay Whitehall Sewer Authority, 3213 MacArthur Road, Whitehall.
