SALE OF PUBLIC SEWERAGE SYSTEM
In December 2017, the East Bradford Township Board of Supervisors approved an Asset Purchase Agreement with Aqua Pennsylvania, Inc. for the sale of the pubic sewerage system. After closing, Aqua will assume responsibility for the public sewer mains located within sewer easements and streets (not private lines to individual houses/units), the sewer pump stations, and sewer billing and collections. The Township and Aqua obtained approval from the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission this past spring and closing is scheduled on December 12, 2018.

PLUM RUN MASTER PLAN PROJECT
The Plum Run Master Plan project seeks to advance several priority recommendations in the Township’s updated 2016 Comprehensive Plan by increasing public access to the Township’s natural and historic resources, creating safer multi-modal opportunities for cyclists and pedestrians, and interpreting the cultural history of the corridor. The next public comment meeting will be Thursday, December 13th from 5:30pm to 7:30pm in the Township Building. Please mark your calendar and join us to see how the documents have been refined from the first public comment meeting.
