WEST MARLBOROUGH: Not much on the agenda
Not much happened at the August meeting of the West Marlborough Township supervisors.
Jake Chalfin was the only supervisor physically present. Bill Wylie was on speakerphone and the third supervisor, Hugh Lofting, was on vacation, far out of cell-phone reach.
Mr. Chalfin and Mr. Wylie conducted routine business like approving last month's minutes and reviewing the financial reports. Township engineer Al Giannantonio discussed a workshop he attended about the updated federal flood plain map, which will affect only two houses in the township.
Mr. Chalfin said that at September's meeting the board may discuss possible plans for the village of Doe Run, owned by the Truitt family, after the board has a chance to receive input from the township solicitor and land planner. At the June meeting Nancy Truitt told the supervisors that the family is doing some preliminary estate planning. She said they want to preserve the village, which they purchased in the late 1980s when the King Ranch was broken up. Doe Run, which is one 15-acre tax parcel, encompasses several rental houses along Route 82, a garage that the Truitts rent to the township, and a small office building used by the township and the Brandywine Conservancy. The Truitts also live in the village.
