SANATOGA PA – Lower Pottsgrove‘s township engineer, Bursich Associates of 2129 E. High St., will review electrical wiring plans for structures regulated by the township building code, under an agreement approved Thursday (May 21, 2009) by the township Board of Commissioners during its second monthly meeting in the municipal building, 2199 Buchert Rd.
Building code reviews normally are conducted by township Zoning Officer and Director of Codes Keith A. Place. Place is working on, but has not yet finished, updating his state certification for electrical reviews, township Manager Rodney Hawthorne told board members. That makes it necessary – probably only for a short time, Hawthorne noted – to contract with a third-party firm to conduct the review work.
Bursich was the lowest bidder, at a cost of $60 hourly. Four other bids ranged as high as $80 hourly. Money to cover the cost is already budgeted, Hawthorne said.
