everal residents from the area of Sterling Ave., last month, told Lower Chichester commissioners they were concerned about children’s safety in their neighborhood and requested that repairs be made to the community playground.
Commissioners President Rocco Gaspari, Jr. reported last week that the concerns were addressed within 48 hours. “Two speed humps and ‘Watch Children’ signs were erected, the playground was cleaned, and plans are in the works to replace the playground equipment that was dismantled due to vandalism,” Gaspari said. “The problems have been addressed.”
Gaspari said residents don’t have to wait for a public meeting to alert township officials of an existing problem.
“Just pick up the phone and call us,” Gaspari said, “all of our phone numbers are listed.”
In other matters, commissioners unanimously approved $13,478 for the 2014 financial requirement and minimum municipal obligation for the non-uniform pension plan. They also approved $41,603 for the minimum municipal obligation for the township police pension plan fund.
Commissioners voted unanimously to keep the curfew for kids 18 and younger at 9 P.M. The curfew will be reassessed at the October meeting of the board. Violators will be cited and prosecuted.
