Towamencin Township Office Closed Thursday
The administrative office at the Towamencin Municipal Complex on Troxell Road is closed Thursday. Staff will be there though sorting through papers and determining what no longer needs to be kept. Township officials would rather not close for a document management day but say the job needs to get done before it piles up any further. They are using their website and telephone system to get the word out about the closing. They also posted a sign on the door at the municiapl complex earlier this month.
Montco Election Preparations Continue
Preparations for the upcoming election have hit a snag in Montgomery County. Sitting as the Election Board, the county commissioners Thursday deferred action on moving a polling place in Upper Hanover as well as two more in Upper Moreland. The delay came up after an Upper Moreland resident pointed out that state law requires a final list of polling places be posted at the Voter Services Office no less than 20-days before the May 21st election. County Commissioner Vice Chair Leslie Richards says the issue hinges more on the unavoidability of the move and the three polling spots in question will stay where they are if possible. The Election Board will meet Friday afternoon to consider again the three proposed polling place changes. It did take action Thursday to move eight other polling places because the original locations were no longer available.
