Dear Aqua Mountainhome Customers:

I am writing to let you know about a water infrastructure improvement project that Aqua Pennsylvania, Inc. (Aqua) is scheduled to begin in your area in the next week.

Aqua will begin an $840,000 project to replace approximately 4,858 feet of old undersized pipe with new 8-inch ductile iron pipe that will eliminate leaks and improve service reliability for customers. The project on Rt. 390 will extend from Price's Drive south to the area near CVS.

Construction is scheduled to take place Monday through Friday between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. and is expected to be complete late this summer.

This meeting is of massive importance.  All Barrett and Paradise residents MUST attend to have their voices heard!  There is LOTS of talk regaurding the opening of a Charter School if Barrett is closed.  I and MANY parents are for this.  We need to stand behind our children's education and social well being.  We want to see Barrett succeed and remain open, but if it does not, then a Charter may be our only alternative!  Please pass this information on.  There are people who have been working on this for months now and need our support.  More information will be announced at the hearing, Monday night.

C.A.M.E.…our local food bank in Barrett Township is in need of donations for the holidays.  If you can help out by making a donation it would greatly be appreciated.  THANK YOU!

The Mountainhome United Methodist Church is selling “Holiday Greens”.  Greens are being made by Ross & Ross Nursery in Paradise Valley, PA.  Contact a member of the Church or the Church office (570-595-2077) for an order form and more information.

The Barrett Supervisors are going ahead with a referendum on the November ballot to remove the 1/2 mill tax dedicated to Open Space.  The meeting will be held on Friday, August 3, at 9:30 a.m. to receive public input and then they will vote to approve the new referendum.  If you SUPPORT Open Space, and do not want the current ordinance to end, please plan to attend the meeting and voice your concerns.  If you cannot attend the meeting (which is being held on a weekday), please voice your opinion by calling the township at 570-595-2602(leave a message), speaking with individual Supervisors, or e-mailing the Chairman of the Supervisors, Ralph Megliola, at megliola@ptd.net.

Please share this information with friends and neighbors. The Supervisors believe that the residents of Barrett Township do not want to continue supporting Open Space. If you disagree, you need to let them know.

Thank you for your time,
Patti O'Keefe
