PECO plans to upgrade equipment installations in and around Franklin 

Radon, a colorless, odorless gas, is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Radon gas percolates up through the earth's crust and is present in ALL 67 Pennsylvania counties.

The best time to test for radon is in winter when homes are closed and radon levels are at their peak.  Radon test kits can be purchased at home improvement and hardware stores. For more information, the EPA has published this “Citizens Guide to Radon -  A Guide to Protecting Yourself and your Family From Radon”.

Recently, the Township has received numerous complaints from residents about overgrown vegetation blocking road signs, low hanging branches and vines, and missing road signs on these PennDOT-owned roadways. The Township has encouraged PennDOT to remedy these issues. We are asking you to help PennDOT by calling them at (484) 340-3201 and reporting any road issues you may see on their roads. Roger Palmer is the Township PennDOT Representative. 
These are the roads in our Township that PennDOT owns and maintains:
Appleton Road, Chesterville Road, Good Hope Road, North Bank Road, North Clay Creek Road, North Creek Road, Pennock Bridge Road, Route 896 (New London Road), Strickersville Road, and Wickerton Road (Route 841).
