relative to T-Mobile’s Cell Tower request that is before the East Pennsboro Township Zoning

DeMartyn told Mr. Kreiger that the Zoning Hearing Board was a judicial board and had their
own attorney who attended their meetings to oversee any decisions that are made. President
DeMartyn indicated that all other township boards/commissioners are advisory boards. If the
Board of Commissioners would want to appeal a decision of the Zoning Hearing Board, they
would have to file suit against them. President DeMartyn indicated that the Township had just
received the transcript for T-Mobile’s hearing and the Commissioners along with the members of
the Zoning Hearing Board will be reviewing the transcript. Mr. Kreiger indicated that the hearing
was monopolized by T-Mobile’s attorney because their expert witness could not answer any of
the residents’ questions. President DeMartyn indicated that the Zoning Hearing Board has
scheduled a continuation of this hearing relative to this request and that all residents will be
notified of date and time of meeting once it has been set.

         Mr. Merle Chronister, 711 Trail Lane, Enola spoke to the Board of Commissioners about
having a New Year’s Eve celebration at Adams Ricci Community Park. Mr. Chronister thought
that it would be great for the community and would like to have a caboose dropped at midnight
followed by fire works. Mr. Chronister indicated that he would be willing to head up the
committee. President DeMartyn stated that this would be a great idea but he understood that the
Summerdale Centennial committee was planning a New Year’s Eve celebration to kick off the
100th Anniversay of Summerdale. It was suggest that Mr. Chronister get in touch with Sandy
Rhoades to help with their celebration and maybe something could be done at Adams Ricci
Community Park for 2010.
