Suplizio reappointed to election board
Friday, May 24, 2013
By Josh Woods Staff Writer DUBOIS - Clearfield County President Judge Fredric J. Ammerman reappointed DuBois City Manager John "Herm" Suplizio to the Clearfield County Board of Elections.
DuBois City Council at its work session yesterday honored Ammerman's request to reappoint Suplizio to the election board. Suplizio served on the board for Tuesday's 2013 primary election.
Yesterday, Suplizio attended a Public Utilities Commission hearing in Harrisburg.
"Herm does a lot for this community and for this county," said Councilman Ed Walsh. "I think for Judge Ammerman to choose him again is pretty commendable, and it's huge for this area."
In other business, Councilman Randy Schmidt made a motion to direct the city's public works department to remove several bags of trash from 15 South Main St. and a mattress from the corner of East Washington Avenue and East Weber Avenue by the end of the work day today, and to bill the property owners. The motion passed 3-0, with Schmidt, Walsh and Gary Gilbert voting in favor. Councilwoman Diane Bernardo and Councilman James Aughenbaugh were absent from the meeting.
The titleholder of the South Main Street property spoke to Suplizio, and the individual who is purchasing the property spoke to Code Enforcement Officer Zac Lawhead. Both individuals were advised to get the property cleaned up. Lawhead was informed Advanced Disposal was supposed to pick up the trash, however; he contacted the business and no work order has been placed.
Several people have failed to cut their grass, Lawhead said. Property owners are given one warning about having high grass and a certified amount of time to do it. If a resident fails to comply with the city's ordinance, the matter is turned over to a magisterial district judge. City crews cut the grass at foreclosed properties, Lawhead said.
Council awarded a bid for phase II of the Sandy Lick Creek Recreation Area (a foot bridge and underpass) to Hallstrom Construction in the amount of $397,998.11. A re-submitted bid on Lot 2 of city-owned property along Rumbarger Avenue was awarded to Dennis Day in the amount of $31,101.
DuBois City Council's next meeting is Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the city building. A public hearing on 2011-12 Community Development Block Grant modification is slated for 6:45 p.m. A 2013 CDBG public hearing will follow at 6:50 p.m.
Residents are reminded the City of DuBois offices and garage will be closed on Monday in observance of Memorial Day.
Non-emergency calls would be taken by the police department at 1-800-689-3535. For an emergency, dial 911.
