The Winslow Township Supervisors met in regular session on November 9 and discussed the new Dollar General Store that will be built near the intersection of the Prescottville Road and Route 322.
The plans for the store were approved at the October meeting. The Supervisor Robert Krajewski said no timeline was given for the construction, but it’s expected work will start in the spring.
Right now, the company is leasing space along Route 322 beside the Goodwill store. It plans to build an 8500 square foot building with another 2140 square feet for the loading dock and parking. Entering and exiting will be on the Prescottville Road.
The supervisors also made preparations for the November 23 budget meeting by approving a real estate tax level of 2.7 mills, the same rate as this year.
The water bill for the month was slightly higher than normal, coming in around $1900 as opposed to the usual $1700 average, drawing the attention of Supervisor Rick August.
This past summer, the supervisors wrestled with major water leaks in the Solider Water system, which were found and repaired, and while several reasons for the increased bill were discussed, August felt it needed to be noted and watched.
“Just something to keep an eye on,” he said.
By comparison, last month’s bill was $1525.
