JACKSON TWP. BEGINS 2004 WITH SURPLUS
Jackson Township began the new year with a surplus over 1.3 million dollars. Through sound financial management and conservative spending the Township will not have to raise taxes as many other municipalities have this year. Also by continuing these practices, this insures that Jackson Township will remain financially sound for future generations. The Jackson Township Supervisors unanimously approved a budget for 2004 of $2,581,912. The breakdown is as follows: General Fund - $836,272.00, State Fund-$140,000.00, Fire Hydrant Fund-$10,000.00, Rescue Fund-$9,000.00, Capital Reserve Fund-$1,523,140.00 and Senior Center Fund-$63,500.00. The Capital Reserve Fund currently stands at 1.3 million and continues to grow monthly.

LOOKING BACK AT 2003
2003 was a busy year in Jackson Township and was filled with ups and downs. Hereís a re-cap of some of the events and happenings in 2003. On the economic front there was the announcement by Conectiv Energy that they were cancelling the proposed $600 million, gas-fired power plant project due to poor economic conditions. Despite this announcement, there were certainly many bright spots for the local economy. Still moving full speed ahead are a multi-million dollar Landfill Gas Conversion Project and the reopening of the Madison Mine which could add 75 jobs this year. Also Warren Oil opened up in the old Pennzoil plant and plans to expand and employ about 50 or more employees. Another project underway is helping to clean up Pergrin Run. Also scheduled is the cleaning up of a large "boney pile" located near Route 271 and Loraine Road. The boney will be transported to a co-gen plant in Ebensburg and used as fuel. The site will eventually be completely reclaimed. Perhaps the biggest boost will be the Route 22 Reconstruction Project for which the estimated cost is at $35 million dollars for the Jackson Township portion. New Enterprise will be the general contractor for the project. Land will be cleared beginning in February of this year for the 2-3 year project which will also add interchange lighting at Route 271 and the proposed Dishong Road intersection.

Last year Jackson took on one of the largest road maintenance programs ever paving and seal coating many roads. Roads that were paved entirely or in part were Adams Avenue, Coyote Street, Dry Run Street, First Street, Leidy Lane Extension, Meiers Street, Pike Road, Warrior Street. Roads that were seal coated (tar & chipped) entirely or in part were Adams Avenue, Anderson Drive, Balsam Street, Brazil Lane, Courter Avenue, Fairview Avenue, Fir Street, Fords Corner Road, Gillen Lane, Kagey Street, Kissell Lane, Leidy Lane, Lyle Street, Maywood Street, Ogden Road, Pike Road, Poplar Street, Rose Branch Street, Stoneridge Street, Thomas Street, Trout Street, Turkey Path Road, Wagner Road, Woodland Street. The road crew also was extremely busy performing maintenance work on Township Roads. A joint project with Nanty Glo Borough to repave a section of Loraine Road was also completed. Nanty Glo provided materials and Jackson provided labor and machinery. The project was initiated after residents from Loraine Road contacted the Roadmasters asking if anything could be done about the deplorable condition and potholes on that segment of the road. That section of road is used primarily by Jackson Township residents and was in deplorable condition with many potholes. The project was a success and both communities benefitied from working together to achieve a common goal.

The Supervisors adopted a revised policy for adopting private roads within Jackson Township. The biggest change is that roads no longer have to be paved as a requirement for being taken over by the Township. The first road adopted by the Township under the new policy was Pennzoil Drive. The Planning Commission did a street light study and the Supervisors approved 35 street lights to be installed at various Township intersections. REA has most of the 9 lights up and Penelec should be installing at least 12 in the very near future. Additional Penelec street lights will be installed as weather permits. The Supervisors approved an Amendment to the Zoning Ordinance restricting where adult businesses could locate within Jackson Township. During 2003 they also waived fees for residents who have to seek variances before the Zoning Board as well as fees charged for driveway permits for alterations to existing driveways. During 2003, 120 building permits were issued for a construction value of over $2.5 million, up from the previous year.

The Jackson Township Vol. Fire Company was able to purchase a new fire truck as a result of the Board of Supervisors contribution. The Police Department also added a full-time officer to the force to provide greater protection to residents. A revised Emergency Management Plan was also adopted to simplify forms and procedures. The Capital Reserve Fund for Jackson Township went over the 1 million dollar mark and residents also enjoyed a 1 mill tax cut on Township real estate. Another project completed was replacement of the roof on the Municipal Garage Building. The Township has also solicited bids for a badly needed new truck to be used by the Road Crew. Also a magazine recycling bin was added at the Vinco Recycling Center. Infrastructure is continuing to expand which will assure that Jackson Township will be an attractive place to live and work. The Jackson - East-Taylor Sewer Authority will be expanding the current sewer system into two new areas including Brazil Lane and Cherrywood Estates. Work has begun in December on a water project to provide water to 9 homes along Solar Street near Route 22. In addition, community block grants are being used to help secure water for residents on Wagner Road and Pintail Road. Perhaps one of the biggest developments will be the construction of a water line from Salt Lick Dam in Mineral Point through Jackson Township and then along Route 22 towards Cambria Township and Ebensburg. The potential for development will be much greater with the additional water available from the new line.

The Senior Center continues to grow with well over 300 members. A new walking track is under construction as well as a new exercise room inside the Center. A community flag pole was installed in November and a well attended dedication ceremony was held on Veterans Day. The Jackson Twp. Recreation Commission had many new projects last year. The largest project was the installation of two ball fields at Leidy Park. A walking track around Leidy Park as well as fencing and back stops for the park are currently out for bid and work should begin in the Spring of this year. New playground equipment was installed last year at both Leidy & Mitchell Parks. 2004 should be another busy year of growth and development in the Township. The Supervisors welcome you to be a contributing part of Jackson Township's future.

WINTER WEATHER TIPS
~
Be sure to check your mail box and post making sure itís secure and can withstand the weight of the heavy snow being plowed off the roads.

~Plow or shovel the snow to the right of your driveway. This will avoid the snow from being re-deposited in your driveway when being plowed by Township Road Workers.

~Use caution and slow down when driving on snowy or icy roads and be sure to leave a little earlier to arrive at your destination safely and on time.

SUPERVISORS REORGANIZE FOR 2004
The Board of Supervisors met on January 5th to reorganize for the New Year. There are no changes to the Board for 2004. Dave Bracken is Chairman and Bruce Baker Vice-Chairman of the 2004 Board. Dave Hirko was re-appointed as Secretary-Treasurer and Bill Barbin Solicitor. Lehman Engineers was retained as Township Engineer. Harry Baker was re-appointed as Zoning Officer and Barry Rowser as Vacancy Board Chairman. There were several re-appointments to various Township boards including Walter Ditchcreek to the Water Authority, Laird Rager to the Planning Commission, and Al Pagano to the Recreation Commission. Ellen Pentrack-Ocilka was named to the Zoning Hearing Board replacing Tim Davis who resigned at the end of 2003. Pentrack-Ocilka was previously an Alternate Member. Al Gailey was named to the Planning Commission to fill the position vacated by Tom Marhefka. Joe Baxter was approved to fill a seat on the Sewer Authority left vacant by John Hamula who stepped in temporarily to fill the position left open by the passing away of Don Karlinsey, long-time member. Dave Bracken & Bruce Baker was re-appointed as Roadmasters. The Supervisors set meetings dates for the last Thursday of every month except in November when it would be the 18th. The Board also approved the 2004 list of Fire Company Activities.

JACKSON TWP. FESTIVAL UPDATE
The Jackson Township Heritage Festival Committee held several meetings during the Fall months at the Senior Center to get public input and participation. The festival is progressing forward for July 17-18, 2004 to coincide with the Cambria County Bicentennial celebrating 200 years. There will be entertainment and activities scheduled during the two days for young and old alike. Besides various childrens games and activities, there will be a student art show and talent show. For those who enjoy music, there will be oldies, bluegrass, gospel and even some groups from our very own Senior Center. Also many local churches, groups and organizations have expressed an interest in having either a food or craft booth. The festival would be held in and around the Jackson Twp. Fire Hall and Senior Center. If your group or organization is interested, please call Dave Hirko at 749-0725 or Paulette Baker at 322-1863 for more information. Volunteers are also welcome as extra help is always needed. The Festival Committee is also encouraging local businesses to help sponsor the festival through contributions and donations. Businesses doing so will get recognition as a sponsor through publicity and banners on the festival grounds. The hope of the Festival Committee volunteers is that this will truly be a community effort.

SUPERVISORS AMEND ZONING ORDINANCE TO RESTRICT ADULT BUSINESSES
The Board of Supervisors approved an ammendment to the existing Zoning Ordinance at their November 20, 2003 meeting that would restrict where adult businesses can locate in Jackson Township. The amendment was recommended by both the Jackson Township & Cambria County Planning Commissions. The new amendment would only permit adult businesses to locate in an Industrial Zone. By doing so, about 95% of Jackson Township would not be zoned as a potential location for an adult business. According to Solicitor Bill Barbin, you canít totally stop an adult business from coming in but with zoning, you can tell them they can only locate in a particular zone. Other restrictions in the amendment dictate that an adult business must be a certain distance away from a residence, church or school. At the October Board of Supervisors meeting Father Paul Robine representing the Jackson Township Alliance of Churches presented petitions with over 500 signatures against adult businesses locating in Jackson Township. The Alliance of Churches also held a White Ribbon Day on the last Sunday in October with residents and businesses wearing and displaying white ribbons on homes and vehicles. With Route 22 being improved to four lanes next year, there were concerns and rumors about possible adult businesses locating in Jackson. There are currently adult businesses in neighboring East Wheatfield Township and in Duncansville, Blair County as well. The new amendment should provide greater protection for Jackson Township.

SUPERVISORS ADOPT PENNZOIL DRIVE
The Board unanimously approved the dedication of Pennzoil Drive to be part of the Township Road System. Mr. Gary Scaife of Warren Oil explained that this would not be a burden on the Township and that by approving this action, Warren Oil could qualify for up to $200,000 in State Infrastructure Money that could be used to upgrade and pave the road. JARI is assisting Warren Oil in getting the available money. Warren Oil hopes to expand and employ up to 50-60 employees. Also in the former Pennzoil Office Complex there are currently three other businesses operating creating additional jobs helping to spur the local economy.

Financial Secretary-David Smith, Treasurer-Mark Sloan, Asst. Treasurer-Dave Bracken, Fire Chief-Elmer Grove, Fire Police Captain-Karl Smith and Trustee-Tim Gillespie.

A new ambulance should be arriving about the end of January unless there are unexpected production delays. All residents are invited to stop by and see the new ambulance. Secretary, Jetta Ehrhart said that "Without our residents support, we would not be able to afford the latest equipment to serve our residents with". In one final announcement, the Jackson Township Volunteer Fire Company has been chosen to host the Volunteer Firemenís Association of Cambria County and Vicinity Convention in the year 2005. The Firemenís Convention last year was a huge success and residents can look forward to the Fire Company being host once again.

BUILDING CODE UPDATE
The Independent Regulatory Review Commission unanimously approved the final form Administration and Enforcement Regulations for the Uniform Construction code (Act 45 of 1999). This is a major step towards implementation of the UCC. After a final review by the Attorney Generals office, this regulation will be published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin as a "final form regulation". Publication is expected to take place no later than January 2004. The newly adopted Code exempts minor repairs and projects and is not nearly as restrictive as the original proposal which was rejected by the State Legislature. Act 45 will take effect 90 days after these regulations are published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin. After the act takes effect, townships will have an 90 additional days to decide whether they will administer and enforce the Statewide Building Code or let the State administer it and notify Labor & Industry of their decision. Please note that there will be a total of 180 days from the date of publication until the time when townships must make a decision.  The Board of Supervisors of Jackson Township previously voted to join approx. 20 other Townships in Cambria County in forming an agency to administer the Building Code. This Agency would be similar to the Cambria County Sewage Enforcement Agency which administers PaDEP on-lot sewage regulations. The advantage of a local agency as opposed to the State is having more local control over costs to citizens as well as offering local support and help for residents and businesses to meet the requirements of the new regulations. It is hoped that the new Building Code will put in place minimum safety requirements for contractors and builders. Forty-five states already have a Statewide Construction Code in place.

SPRING CLEAN-UP SET FOR 2004
Spring Clean-Up as been scheduled for May 3rd thru 7th, 2004. Pick up will be on your regular collection day. You will be allowed one large item. Items that will not be picked up are yard waste, branches, construction materials, refrigerators or air conditioners containing Freon, batteries, car parts, old paint, hazardous material, freezers and tires. Refrigerators, freezers or air conditioners can be picked up ONLY after the Freon is properly removed. Certification of Freon removal is required. Township residents wishing to haul their own refuse to the landfill may do so with a FREE permit issued at the Township Office only during the week of Spring Clean-Up. To insure the continuation of Spring Clean-Up, regular weekly garbage should be in regular Township garbage bags.

SENIOR CENTER NEWS
The Jackson Township Senior Center dedicated a new flag pole as a "community flag pole" to honor area veterans. The dedication ceremony was held on Veteranís Day and was very well attended by over 140 people including citizens, elected officials and local television stations and newspapers. A program and small American flags were passed out by Boy Scouts & Cub Scouts. Taking part in the special ceremony were Frank Singel, President of the Sr. Center, Giestown VFW Post 155 Honor Guard, Sgt. Michael Strank VFW, Conemaugh / Franklin American Legion, Ret. Lt. Col. Marty Kuhar, Father Tony Legarsky, Pastor of Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Beaverdale (Lt. Com. Navy) and Jackson Township Pack 204 Cub Scouts & Boy Scouts. Betty Lybarger also led the crowd in several patriotic songs including the National Anthem. Lt. Col. Kuhar, a local resident, did an excellent job explaining Veteranís Day and praising not only the Veterans but the young men and women currently in the Armed Forces. The raising of the flag with the trumpet playing to the Colors and the lowering of the flag with taps was an excellent way to dedicate the flagpole to the Community and Veterans. Frank Singel, President said "This could not have taken place if we didnít have a Center, good membership and the cooperation of the Township Supervisors". He added that "Hopefully the small section around the flag pole can be used to set up a Veteranís Memorial. " Mr. Singel expressed his thanks for all those who helped in any way to make the event possible. "Since November 11 is Veteran's Day we felt it was a good time to raise the first flag and honor all Veterans" said Senior Center President, Frank Singel. He added that a light would be installed so the flag can remain flying at all times. He hopes to hold special ceremonies on Memorial Day and Veterans Day each year to honor all those veterans who have served their country.

OTHER JACKSON TWP. NEWS
~Madison Mine Update
Madison Mine, a division of Amfire mining expects to have permits in place and is looking to begin construction work at the old Bethlehem # 38 mine along Swigle Mountain Road. According to Lou Pianetti, Manager of Engineering, it takes about 3 to 4 months to develop the mine before actual coal mining can begin. Madison Mine is anticipating actual coal production to begin around June-July, 2004. The mine is expected to employ around 75 people. This will be the first deep-mine to open in Cambria County for a long time.

~Landfill Gas Conversion Project
A proposed Landfill Gas Conversion Project is on track for Jackson Township. In 2004 the first phase would feature a plant which would convert Landfill Gas taken from the Laurel Highlands Landfill into usable Natural Gas. This would be only the 2nd plant of its kind in the Eastern US with the other successfully running in Ohio. The permitting process is under way and project construction could begin this Summer. A second plant is proposed for the Southern Alleghenies Landfill in Somerset County in a later phase of this project.

~Life of Laurel Landfill Reported Incorrectly
A recent article in the Johnstown Tribune-Democrat reported incorrectly that the life of the Laurel Highlands Landfill is only 9 to 12 years. According to Brad Minemyer, Manager of the Laurel Highlands Landfill, the correct figure is a minimum of 30 years. Mr. Minemyer said that they are already permitted for 30 years and that is even if maximum capacity allowed is achieved for each of those 30 years. He also added that with their compaction rate exceeding that required by law as well as the new proposed Landfill Gas Conversion Project, the life of the landfill could extend an additional 10-15 years beyond the 30 they are currently permitted for.

~New Internet Business Starts Up
A new company called Cyberspeed Internet started up operations in the Warren Oil Office Complex. With the help of JARI (Johnstown Area Regional Industries), the space was located for Cyberspeed to move their operations from Virginia Beach, VA to Mundys Corner. The company currently employs 4 people and hopes to expand as the business develops. Mr. Vincent Jordan is the head of Network Operations and has family ties to the area. Mr. Jordan is very positive about moving to the new Mundys Corner facility and is looking towards expansion of the hi-tech business. He said "With a hi-tech business such as Cyberspeed you can operate from virtually anywhere as long as you have the proper communication lines".

~Full Time Police Officer Added to Jackson P.D.
Melanie Kline who has served as a part-time police officer for Jackson Township for several years has now been hired as a full-time officer.

PLANNING A BUILDING PROJECT?
If you are planning on building a new building or adding on to an existing building, be sure to stop at the Township Office to apply for a building permit. Be sure to allow plenty of time to get your permit prior to building. By doing this, your permit can be addressed in plenty of time before you actually begin construction. No permits are necessary for remodeling an existing structure such as installing new roofing, siding, windows, etc. Also if you are planning to pave or alter your driveway, a driveway permit is required. Roadmasters Bruce Baker & Dave Bracken said that driveway permits are not to inconvenience residents but are necessary to make sure there is a swale or pipe to direct stormwater. They also make sure that driveways are not higher than the road so snow plows donít catch the edge of the driveway. When a driveway enters onto a Township road, a safe sight distance is also very important. PennDOT requires permits for driveways entering onto State roads within the Township.
