BROCKPORT – The Horton Township Board of Supervisors approved a county-wide hazard mitigation plan during Wednesday's regular meeting.
Resolution 270-12 was developed to provide a blueprint for reducing property damage from natural and manmade disasters in Elk County.
"Elk County passed it," said Secretary Dennis Thompson. "They are going to go by the county's plan in case there are natural disasters. We just have to say we are going to go along with their plan instead of trying to make one of our own."
In other business, Fall Cleanup had been moved to Saturday, September 22 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Supervisor Levi Donahue reminded the public that they will not accept brush, tires and ash.
Supervisor Fred Wolfe said the supervisors will be present to keep track of what's being disposed.
"We will take the burn barrels, but they can't be full of ash," Donahue said.
Supervisors voted in favor appointing Donahue as the check signee after former supervisor John Carlson stepped down.
