Special LETTER from the Supervisors to the Residents

Hello Neighbors, 

Hopefully this letter finds all of you in good health and ready for warmer temperatures! This past winter will go down in history as one of the coldest in recent years.  It’s hard to remember one with so much cold weather! At least three times this winter we were greeted with early morning temperatures that were -15°. The prolonged cold and extreme temperatures are what have prompted us to write this letter to the residents of Richmond Township. In this part of the world, we all know that we must bury our water lines at least 3 feet deep to keep them from freezing. In some cases, that was not deep enough this year, especially if the lines ran under a driveway where snow was plowed and removed from the surface. We have talked to two contractors who have dug ditches this winter underneath driveways, roadways and/or parking lots. They both have told us that the frost line was over 60 inches deep. This kind of frost, driven in that deep on our roadways, is going to cause problems with our gravel roads as the weather warms up.  Those of us who have lived on gravel roads know what we’re talking about.  We are afraid that we may see some major problems with soft spots and potholes as the frost comes out of the roads.  We all have seen the start of these problems throughout the area. Our state-maintained black top roads are no exception. We want you to know that we will do our best to keep the roads in the best possible shape as this happens. We are asking for your patience during this time. With 44 miles of gravel road to maintain, we will do our best to get to problem spots on your road and take care of them as quickly as possible. We are often asked, “Why don’t you take the grader or the high-lift to these soft spots and fix them right away?” The answer is that we will, in time, do just that. However, we must wait until the frost is out of the ground in that area or we will do more damage than good. We want to thank you in advance for your patience and assure you that we will work hard to maintain everyone’s road as quickly as possible. As always, please feel free to report any road problems to (814) 967-3822. Please remember to drive carefully this spring, slow down and be cautious of those soft spots and potholes. Respectfully,

                     Bill Taylor                            Don James                   Glenn Sharpe
