Clutter Gone!, At Least From Township Attic

SANATOGA PA – A little house-cleaning can, apparently, go a long way to please an insurance company.

An inspector from the Delaware Valley Insurance Trust, the insurer that provides property and liability coverage to Lower Pottsgrove Township, recently made a scheduled inspection of its offices, public works buildings, and other township facilities. One place into which the inspector peeked, township Manager Ed Wagner reported, was the attic atop the Buchert Road municipal building.

Think, for a moment, about the current state of your home’s attic. Then think about how much more cluttered a township storage area might be, filled with boxes of dust-collecting records and other paperwork that local governments are required to keep for three, or five, or seven years. And, Wagner said with a smile, you’d be thinking wrong.

Thanks to an effort by township Secretary Sharon Colletti, Wagner told the Board of Commissioners during its Sept. 21 meeting, its attic was comparatively pristine in appearance. Many former boxes were gone. Those that remained were repackaged and tidy. The inspector couldn’t believe the difference since a previous visit.

The insurer was impressed, too, Wagner said, by construction done by the township Public Works Department staff on its building addition, and took special note a one-of-a-kind chain saw holder built by township Director of Utilities John Fogel.

The inspector left happy which, commissioners said, made them happy too.
