Public Sewer Planned for Horsham Residences

Six properties in the area of McKean Road and Limekiln Pike will have access by year's end, officials said.

Six residences in the vicinity of McKean Road and Limekiln Pike could have public sewer by November. 

The Horsham Township Council at its meeting Wednesday, approved the extension of the sewer line on McKean Road, which, according to engineer William Malin, will cost approximately $204,000.

“The authority can charge a tapping fee for connection,” Malin told the governing body.

Township manager Bill Walker said the extension would not cost the township any money. He said the properties that tie into the system would split the estimated cost. 

Malin said the extension has the potential of providing sewer connections for 14 additional lots.

“You don’t pay that fee until you actually connect,” he said.

The council also introduced an ordinance to allow for a sanitary sewer easement on a portion of township-owned property on Limekiln Pike. A public hearing for that ordinance is scheduled for Aug. 22 at 7 p.m.

In other business, following a public hearing absent any members of the public, the council unanimously voted to repeal its outdated . Officials said previously that the move to do so followed a lawsuit against the township last fall.

Also, the council voted to approve the sale of a township-owned highway truck, two mowers and seven portable generators at auction.
