ROCK GLEN — Black Creek Twp. supervisors adopted a $684,200 spending plan for 2018 at their meeting Tuesday afternoon.

The budget keeps the property tax rate at 0.66 mills, which means no tax increase for township residents. Supervisors Bonnie Adams and Joe Lescowitch approved the budget. Outgoing Supervisor Dennis Feerrar was absent.

In other business, the supervisors opened bids, hired for the road crew, applied for a gaming grant, passed a resolution banning mini-casinos and accepted reports.

The supervisors awarded a contract to M.J. Excavating for infrastructure maintenance at varying operating rates. The company was the lone bidder. Adams said they will turn to the firm when they have an emergency or need additional help.

The supervisors hired Brad Klein to serve on the road crew, filling a spot left vacant by the resignation of Scott Knecht, who started his own business, Adams said.

The township also applied for a $196,560 Local Share Account grant from the Department of Community and Economic Development for the Tower Road bridge replacement.

The supervisors also passed a resolution banning Category 4 casinos within the township. Category 4 licenses allow a mini-casino to operate between 300 and 750 slot machines and up to 50 table games.

Lescowitch, who is also the township fire chief, reported that the company was putting a quick response unit into service Jan. 1 to assist EMS on medical calls. It often takes an ambulance 20 minutes to respond into the township, and this unit will be able to arrive sooner and assist patients until an ambulance arrives, he said.
