Township residents should have recently received a mailing from the Board of Supervisors regarding alcoholic beverages not being able to be purchased in restaurants or retail outlets in our Township.  The Board supports changing the Township’s "dry" status in an effort to foster economic development in the Township. The Board would like to see our community continue to flourish through the growth of small businesses such as restaurants and shops.  Improving our tax base is also an objective.  Allowing the sale of alcoholic beverages is one small way to generate additional income for the Township without the challenges associated with large scale development, such as the building of big commercial establishments.  Between the dates of February 19 and March 12, the Board of Supervisors, working with volunteer residents, will be going door-to-door to collect signatures of registered voters, aged 18 and older, on a petition that would allow a question to be placed on the May primary ballot, on whether or not to remove the Township’s dry status.  The Board has put together some information for residents to review.  If you would like to help out in this effort, please call the Township office (610) 255-5212.
