Jewett HAZEL HURST – Hamlin Township still is waiting for a PNC loan to pay its fee for connecting the Lantz Corners Sewer District to the Mt. Jewett sewage treatment system. Jim Trussell, chairman of the Hamlin Township Board of Supervisors, said Monday that the loan should be in hand "by the end of next week." Under a decade-old agreement, the township agreed to pay $104,000 to the Mt. Jewett Regional Sewer Authority as a "capacity fee" before making connections. The amount is based on the $750 "tap-in" fees to be paid by the commercial and residential customers in the Lantz Corners Sewer District. Trussell and supervisors Joni Britton and Dave Okerlund agreed in October to borrow $105,000 from PNC Bank for "interim financing" to cover the fee to Mt. Jewett. Due to some glitches, the loan has yet to be received. HAZEL HURST – Hamlin Township still is waiting for a PNC loan to pay its fee for connecting the Lantz Corners Sewer District to the Mt.
