Young Twp. board talks audit, water

March 13, 2011

WALSTON — The Young Township supervisors adopted the storm water management ordinance at Wednesday's supervisors meeting.

Mike Defelice, supervisor chairman, said even though the ordinance has been adopted, that doesn't mean it can't be amended.

Ron Canton, township auditor, said they performed an audit on the sewage account this year and discovered a lot of problems that have been corrected.

Canton said the auditors picked up some items that were missed over the years, and some of the customers who owed money on their accounts have been coming in and bringing them current.
