Lower Swatara approves plowing agreement

Crews from Lower Swatara Twp. will plow state roads in the township again next winter under an agreement with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation that was approved unanimously by township commissioners on Wednesday, July 15.

Lower Swatara will get about $300 more in 2015-16 from PennDOT for snow plowing. In a particularly bad winter, the department may provide additional money for the township’s services, although no money is returned to the state following a mild season treating the roads.
