The distillery can open in Old Lycoming Township due to light and noise problems | News, sports, jobs

A proposal to open a distillery in Old Lycoming Township was received by residents near the proposed site with concerns about noise and light pollution.

According to Drew Lomison, who made the request, the business is supposed to be a calm and relaxed atmosphere, with drinks being distilled and bottled on-site, and a brief tasting possible.

Bonni Stahl, a resident of the township, spoke about her concerns about the distillery during the meeting. Stahl said she lived near the distillery’s potential location and was concerned about noise and lighting in case the business expanded.

The regulator gave Lomison the green light to purchase the building on condition that Lomison returns to regulators before receiving an occupancy certificate.

“This is not a perpetual permit. We need to establish ground rules for hours, lighting, and so on. I think we shouldn’t license some of these things until they are answered. “ said supervisor Linda Mazullo.

Lomison said the business, which has been building for a decade, is set to launch in 2023 if approved.

Although the Old Lycoming Township Police Department had previously announced that the trick or treating will take place in the township on Saturday, October 30th, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., the guards have rescheduled it to Sunday, October 31st, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

In other news, the board also approved the appointment of Marc Drier as advocate for the Zone / Hearing Committee at an hourly rate of $ 115.

Autumn leaves collection begins in the parish on October 25th. Residents are encouraged to rake leaves in a pile on the edge of their property and be careful not to rake them into the street, community manager Matt Aikey said.

On the financial side, the township overseers also approved the establishment of a bank account for the township’s capital reserve budget. In addition, Aikey said the district’s budget for 2022 was nearing completion after four budget meetings and should be announced soon.

The community overseers also approved Sam Aungst and Matthew Aikey to sign the PennVest loan of $ 388,757 for the community street sweeper.
