Twelve residents from Papermill Hollow in North East raised concerns over the flooding that occurred on Nov. 5 at the Nov. 20 township supervisors meeting. 

Residents emphasized that this was the third time in 15 years that there has been flooding, and they were asking for help.

Attorney Robert Jeffrey said the flooding issue is a result of flow from the creek rather than a stormwater issue.

Jeffrey noted that the township will be able to assist the residents by contacting the Department of Environmental Protection, Fish and Boat Commission and helping with grants. He also said the township is only responsible for the roadway.

Supervisor Gus Neff will be the liaison to meet with the group or their spokesperson to work on getting help for the residents of Papermill Hollow.
