MEETING DATE: February 28, 2018 -- Special Meeting

Duly advertised in The Pottstown Mercury and posted at

A special meeting of the Schuylkill Township Board of Supervisors was held on Wednesday, February 28, 2018 in order to discuss the engagement of special counsel to review a real estate development issue.  Members of the Board of Supervisors present were Mr. Mark Donovan, Ms. Susan Guerette, Ms. Martha Majewski, Mr. Jim Morrisson and Mr. Fred Parry.  Also present was the Township Secretary, Madeline Harbison.

The meeting was called to order at 7:20 p.m. with Supervisor Majewski as Chair leading the Pledge of Allegiance.  Supervisor Majewski advised the Board that as Supervisor Guerette had requested the special meeting, she would lead the discussion.

Supervisor Guerette explained that she had requested this meeting in order to explore the possibility of retaining special counsel for guidance and an independent review of the legalities of one aspect of the tentative plan submitted by Pohlig Builders for the Reeves property, specifically, the opening of the cul-de-sac on East Philip Drive to provide a secondary egress/ingress to the proposed development.  Supervisor Guerette advised the Board that the matter had been discussed with the Township Solicitor who advised this course of action.

Discussion ensued regarding suitable counsel and areas of expertise required.

Upon motion by Supervisor Majewski, seconded by Supervisor Donovan, and passed with Supervisors Morrisson and Parry dissenting, the Board of Supervisors of Schuylkill Township approved and authorized the engagement of a special counsel to advise the Board on the opening of the cul-de-sac on East Philip Drive as it relates to the proposed Sedgley Farms PRD tentative development plan submitted to the Township by Pohlig Builders at a not to exceed amount of five thousand dollars ($5,000.00)

There being no further business before the Board of Supervisors, the meeting was adjourned at 7:30 p.m.
