ADAMS TWP — Supervisors approved a representative for the township in the 2020 census, with officials stressing the importance of the count in landing funding for initiatives.

Supervisor Chairman Thomas Franceschina nominated assistant code enforcement officer Joe Julian to be the representative and he was appointed.

Franceschina stressed the importance of everyone filling out the census.

“It brings a lot of money to us,” he said. “We lose a lot if we miss a few people.”

Additionally, police Chief Shawn Anglum asked supervisors to seek quotes to fix the intersection of Brickyard Road, Spring Street Extension and Clay Avenue.

Anglum said the intersection poses a risk for motorists as it offers little visibility.

“We need to address the intersection,” he said. “Maybe make it more of a T intersection.”

Supervisors approved staff soliciting quotes for the intersection.

Also, supervisors approved a resolution affirming the township's objectivity in the coming election.

“Adams Township and Adams Township Police Department are government entities and do not endorse any candidate for public office,” the statement reads.
