WEST DECATUR - The Boggs Township supervisors gave an update on the Dixon property which has actually been a part of the township meetings for the past couple of years.
Chairman Bill Dickson said the Dixon land development property was to be inspected by township engineers earlier this year, but business owner Tom Dixon ordered the engineers off the property.
Eventually, the matter ended up in court and a judge ordered the Dixons must allow the inspection.
Once the inspection was completed, it was determined that several items needed corrected.
Dickson said none of the infractions have been corrected and, according to a letter the township solicitor sent to Dixon, the list of issues need addressed. Thus a hearing that was to be held was rescheduled.
Should the issues not be taken care of then another hearing will have to be held. The solicitor is hoping this can be avoided.
In a related matter, Tom Dixon was charged with harassing the township supervisors when they were working along a township road in 2011. Dixon lost the hearing, but he and his attorney appealed the decision.
It was agreed that if Dixon took anger management classes the charges would be dismissed.
The township supervisors were notified recently that Dixon did not complete the classes and he has since been found guilty of disorderly conduct.
In other business the supervisors:
• approved the Shimmel subdivision.
• received notice that Penelec is applying for a permit to do an aerial crossing on Clearfield Creek.
• received a thank you from township resident John Deacon for them cleaning out a ditch on Company Road
• approved the Hazardous Mitigation Resolution for Clearfield County.
