Old Business

More talk about Avondale.   Zemba is not compacting the soil as per specifications that the Trustees approved.  The County is aware of this and has done checks to confirm that the work is not being done correctly.  This is going to be a big problem in 2, 5, 10 years as the soil settles and creates ongoing problems for the residents and the Township in trying to maintain the roads.
