Waverly Township supervisors discussed the American Water Company/Ivy Industrial Park waterline project on Stevenson Road at their meeting on July 28. Although no decisions or votes were made, township engineer Ned Slocum said an agreement with the company is near.

Due to the pending roadwork project the township has in the same location, he said both parties discussed an agreement best for the two projects collectively. Gannett Flemming, Inc. previously submitted the plans on behalf of the water company, Slocum completed an initial review and new plans were submitted reflecting most of those comments.

He said although a few concerns still remain, an agreement is in the works. He outlined the agreement, saying Gannett Flemming will install the water line in the road, restore the trench and, in lieu of installing permanent base paving and overlay, the company will complete temporary paving and pay the township the bid item cost for that work. That money can then be used in conjunction with the township project.

In other business, the Waverly Community House applied for a certificate of occupancy to co-host with the YMCA an after-school program in the space formerly occupied by the Attic Shop. A building inspector will be required to check into the matter.

Other items briefly discussed included the Waverly addressing issue, Ledgewood/Stone property issue, a fence issue on Academy Street, pump stations one and two and other maintenance items. No votes or official decisions were made.

Roadwork bids will be opened at the next meeting scheduled for Aug. 11.
