Effective August 29, 2013 the Franklin Township Sewer Authority has sold the Cashtown/McKnightstown sewer system as well as the Poplar Springs sandmound to a private company, Pennsylvania American Water (PAWC).  PAWC is now responsible for all future collections as well as operation and maintenance of the systems.   

The Authority, through the negotiating process, was able to lower your monthly rate from $90.00 a month to $85.00 per month for the Cashtown/McKnightstown customers, $60.00 a year savings. The rates will stay the same for the Poplar Springs customers.  You can expect your first invoice from PAWC on or about September 30, 2013 for services rendered September 1, 2013 – September 30, 2013.  That bill will reflect the prior month’s service and PAWC will continue billing on a monthly basis, in arrears.   

At the August 13, 2013 monthly board meeting the Sewer Authority Board has decided unanimously to not bill our customers for the final month’s service.  YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A BILL FROM FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP SEWER AUTHORITY IN SEPTEMBER for the services you received in  August, 2013 unless you are delinquent and owe a past due amount.   

If you do owe the Authority for past due amounts, please pay that amount, in full, immediately, to the Sewer Authority.  The Authority must collect all past due amounts, and will immediately begin collection actions on all delinquent accounts.    

Please feel free to contact Jamie Gebhart at 717-321-5212 with any questions or concerns you may have.
