Township Website

Rick Fry advised that the website address is pequaywantownship.org and the cost with GoDaddy.com is $87.93 for two years.  He previewed the site on a laptop; advising that it is very simple with no graphics to make it easier for dial-up users.

Fireman Relief Association:

A statement made by Mr. Petry last month was questioned and found to be in error.  He stated that the Township guarantees the pension amount to the fireman volunteers.  As the township and the fire department are two separate entities the non-profit (i.e., the fire department), is to be the guarantor.
