LAWRENCE COUNTY – During the Lawrence County Redevelopment Commission meeting Thursday morning, the commission discussed an update to MOU’s from the Marshall Township TIF.
A memorandum of understanding (MOU) is a legal document describing a bilateral agreement between parties. It expresses a convergence of will between the parties, indicating an intended common line of action, rather than a legal commitment.
Commission President Jeff Quyle led the discussion by first mentioning the $40,000 Avoca Park project investment announced on February 8th before moving on to the plans for the Briarwood sewer district upgrades and the Marshall Township Volunteer Fire Department (MTVFD) utility vehicle.
The Briarwood Sewer treatment plant has requested a match to go towards a sewer plant replacement project and has provided the commission with invoices to be taken care of as a part of this project.
The MTVFD has requested the purchase of a utility vehicle that will allow responders to get into areas that need help due to overgrown brush or residential growth, causing the roads to become more narrow or rugged.
This matching grant of $17,500 would be able to go towards funding and equipment for the vehicle for the Fire Department to use in case of these situations. The commission is still awaiting an invoice for this project.
