Township Ponders Dealing With Surplus Bicycles

SANATOGA PA – Maybe more frequently than you’d think, bicycles are lost or misplaced across portions of Lower Pottsgrove, and then found by township police. Some, sadly, are stolen and then abandoned by the thieves, and recovered by police. In both cases, only a few of the rightful owners show up at the Buchert Road police station to claim their missing rides.

Now the township needs to determine how to rid itself of a growing inventory of two-wheeled transportation. The Board of Commissioners will tackle that issue Thursday (Jan. 25, 2018) when it meets at 7 p.m. in the conference room of the municipal building, 2199 Buchert Rd. It is expected to act on a police department request for permission to donate or otherwise dispose of the bicycles.

The meeting is free to attend and open to the public. A copy of the board agenda is available for download from the township website, here.

Also Thursday, the agenda indicates commissioners are anticipated to:

  • Hear about a recent report from the Ringing Hill Firemen’s Relief Association;
  • Learn about an application for and upcoming Zoning Board hearing regarding property at 2298 E. High St.;
  • Discuss a proposal made several months ago by the Predators Youth Baseball organization regarding its potential lease of township fields; and
  • Review and act on a memorandum of understanding with the Pottsgrove School District to continue supplying a school resource officer at some of its buildings through June 30.
