Strausser Enterprises just says "No"

On September 17, after a Board of Supervisors Executive Session, votes were taken and unanimous approval was given to direct the Township Solicitor, Karl Kline, to write two letters to developer Gary Strausser's attorney. 

The first was regarding fully funding the Riverview project's now-at-zero escrow accounts.  They should contain $250,000 and must be replenished by September 30, 2009.

The second was to advise that whatever actions are necessary may be taken by the Township if the developer does not sign the agreement letter (last drafted in 2007) that defines the terms and conditions of extensions to the developer's PRD (Planned Residential Development) for phases 5 & 6.  Final plans are 3-1/2 years late and there is no agreement in place.  In the letter, the developer was asked to sign the time extension agreement by September 30, 2009.

Read Christopher Baxter, the Morning Call, September 26, 2009.  The article details the developer's refusal to sign the agreement and refusal to replenish the escrow accounts.
