BROCKPORT – Following the Spring Cleanup, the Horton Township Supervisors voted in favor of reinstating a Fall Cleanup to be held Sept. 1.
Chairman Jeff Johnson said the cleanup will be held in the fall on a trial basis.
"We did get some stuff; not an overwhelming amount," Johnson said. "What we are going to try to do now is have one in the fall now to see how it goes."
According to Johnson, the township had held a cleanup twice a year.
"A lot of people didn't have time to get their stuff out early enough for the early one [spring]," Johnson said. "So we are going to try one in the fall."
Supervisor Levi Donahue said there will be three changes to the cleanup:
*No ash from burn barrels.
"People burn their papers and then they want to bring their burn barrels and want us to throw it in there," Donahue said.
*Absolutely no tires.
*No brush; tree limbs, etc.
Under new business, the board voted in favor of appointing Michael Starr to the Brockway Water Sewage Authority following the resignation or Robert Trunzo.
Roadmaster Randy Carr was absent.
