Roll call of supervisors showed Jeremy Ruffner, Daniel Mitchell and Randy Powell all present.

 

Comments from the audience: Amy Guffey from 329 Fork Run Road presented concerns with Semi-Trucks making wrong turns when following their GPS which has them coming out Flegal Road and onto Fork Run Road. They are taring up the road and waking her in the night and she has to try and help them get turned around and out of there. She asked what the supervisors can do to stop the trucks from coming up the road. This issue has been discussed at previous meetings and the supervisors were unsure what the township can do when the GPS is giving them those directions. It was discussed to consider putting up more signs at the entrance onto Flegal Road off SR 322/SR 153 to help alleviate the issue. There is already a weight limit on Flegal Road.
