In an effort to move forward with the DuBois-Sandy Township Consolidation, Area Residents are taking steps to get the issue placed on the Ballot for the November Election. Just this week Area Residents started a Petition to get the DuBois-Sandy Township Consolidation on the Ballot in the Fall Election.
This Petition comes after the Sandy Township Supervisors voted 4-1 against consolidating with the City of DuBois. Since Monday, Area Residents were seen at the American Legion and on W. Long Avenue in DuBois getting signatures for this Petition. Area Resident Blaine Carr says it’s due time that Sandy Township and DuBois consolidate. He says the duplication of services is costing people money.
Officials say they need 386 Signatures to get the consolidation on the Ballot, 166 of those coming from DuBois Residents and 219 from Sandy Township. So far they have 400 Sandy Township Residents and 86 DuBois Residents on the Petition, they’ll have until August 3rd to finalize this Petition.
