SANATOGA PA – Late spring temperatures today (Wednesday, May 27, 2015) are expected to reach into the mid-80s, but increased humidity may make it feel as though it was 91, according to AccuWeather reports. Apparently there’s no need to tell that to Lower Pottsgrove Township employees who work in the municipal building on Buchert Road.
The building’s cooling system is on the fritz, and Manager Ed Wagner said Thursday (May 21) they may be sweating though every prickly degree.
The air conditioning unit that would otherwise make day-to-day township business dealings more comfortable “is shot and needed emergency repairs,” Wagner publicly reported to the Board of Commissioners. More than that, he added; the 25-year-old unit has hit the end of its mechanical lifespan and must be replaced.
Commissioners had no comment. They generally are informed of such things as they happen, and the replacement approval seemed a foregone conclusion. There was no estimate of what a new unit will cost or when it will be installed, but Wagner indicated the work would begin as soon as possible.
Much to the relief, probably, of those earlier-mentioned employees.
