STAFFORD – At the most recent Township Council meeting, the council introduced ordinances that would authorize the township to bond for new water meters at the Perry’s Lake development as well as for various other capital improvements.

The first ordinance plans to appropriate $500,000 for capital improvements in the township, of which $475,000 will be bonded for. These improvements include: the construction of a veterans and first responders memorial at the municipal courtyard, tile replacement at the roller hockey court on Doc Cramer Boulevard, and the acquisition of property for municipal purposes.

The property to be acquired is located at 292 East Bay Avenue, also known as Block 229, Lot 19.01. This property is adjacent to the Stafford Township Municipal Building.

The second ordinance will allow for the purchase and installation of water meters at the Perry’s Lake development, located off of McKinley Avenue. The ordinance will bond for $250,000 for this project.

Township Administrator Jim Moran emphasized that this will be funded through the township’s water/sewer budget.
