2. East Buffalo Township Supervisors plan to discuss wetland development as well as funding contributions to the regional police and recreation authorities at its meeting Monday night at 5:30. The wetland is targeted for 1.25 acres of vacant land just west of the Donald H. Eichhorn Middle School building in Lewisburg. The project received state grant funding and is meant to be used as an educational tool for science classes. Township supervisors plan to discuss and potentially vote on a maintenance agreement for Lewisburg Area School District to care for the property, township Manager Stacey Kifolo said.

Supervisors may discuss how many police protection units, which are used to measure hours of service, they plan to purchase from the Buffalo Valley Regional Police Department — a central point of contention in the ongoing litigation with police partner Lewisburg Borough.

The supervisors may also discuss funding for the Buffalo Valley Recreation Authority. The supervisors will consider a 2 percent increase and whether to fund the authority at current levels or to reduce it since the authority turned over ownership of the regional rail-trail, according to Kifolo.

3. The Montour County commissioners are expected to vote on zoning changes during its meeting at 11 a.m. Tuesday.
