The Cresson Township supervisors will soon be reviewing the final plans for the new Sheetz location along Admiral Peary Highway.
According to the supervisors, the company plans to dismantle the current location and erect the new building , as well as new fuel pumps, in the lot directly behind it.
Supervisors Chairman Scott Decoskey said Thursday the plans have been in the works for about a year. Sheetz Inc. recently has been pursuing permits through the township to use a township-owned right of way as an entrance, and also PennDOT.
“There’s been some changes made throughout – what we wanted, what PennDOT wanted,” Decoskey said. “I think we’re pretty well caught up on approvals. I just want to go over what would be the final plan for the township.”
He added that the township engineer still has to approve subdivision and land division requirements. The stormwater management plan also is pending approval.
At the supervisors’ regular Thursday meeting, township police Officer Jon Burns said the department is looking into securing grant money to buy bulletproof vests. Burns, who is admittedly unfamiliar with the grant application process, said he was unsure if the department would be eligible.
The department employs four officers.
