Neshaminy presents preliminary plan for consolidation
Neshaminy school board members and the public discussed the board’s proposal to close and consolidate schools in the district. In June, the board approved a plan that would close three of its elementary schools – Oliver Heckman and Samuel Everitt elementary schools in Middletown, and Lower Southampton Elementary School. The board faced pushback from the public on busing, the cost of the project, the selection of schools to close, and the rationale for building a new school.

New borrowing approved to fund construction in Solebury Township
Solebury supervisors unanimously voted to borrow $7.4 million to help fund the construction and renovation of several government buildings in the township. Approximately $4.6 million will be used to refinance a 2009 open space bond; $2.7 million to construct a new garage; and the rest to pay the costs of the loan. By taking out a bank loan instead of floating a bond, the township will not have to pay interest on the entire $2.7 million from the beginning, but only on the amounts it draws to pay construction bills, according to financial advisor Gordon Walker of Public Financial Management. Township Manager Dennis Carney said that $2.7 million is a high-end estimate on the cost of demolishing the existing garage; renovating part of an older building for police use; erecting a salt storage bin; and constructing a 16,000-square-foot building to house the fleet of a dozen trucks, backhoes and other equipment.
