Supervisor John Hertzer has volunteered to attend Marcellus Shale meetings with Peters, Cecil and South Fayette, all of which are involved in litigation over drilling.

Peters manager Mike Silvestri invited Moon to attend.

Moon's special counsel, Gavin Robb of Tucker Arensberg P.C. in Pittsburgh, is working on updating Moon's Marcellus Shale ordinance.

• Supervisors are considering using the paperless agenda system that is used in the Moon Area School District. Township manager Jeanne Creese said the board is looking at several vendors and paperless agenda systems.

It's unclear whether the township would provide laptops or whether the supervisors would use their own. The board approved looking at a demonstration by one of the vendors for a paperless agenda system that would allow the board members to access their accounts from anywhere.

The system would create agendas and the minutes from the meetings and minute indexing.

Ms. Creese said she did not have a final cost for the system, but the township's administration and finance department spends about $370 per quarter on paper.


Pool passes will cost more this season.

Commissioners voted 5-0 Monday night to increase the cost of using the township's swimming pool in the Clever Recreation & Sports Complex.

The passes will cost about $10 more, with the specific amount varying depending on the type of pass and the month of use.

Township manager Aaron Bibro said the current fees are much lower compared with public pools in municipalities such as North Fayette and Dormont.

A parks and recreation study had recommended "significantly" raising the prices, he said, but the township preferred to incrementally increase fees rather than implement a large hike at once.
