Joint Meeting - Independence and Liberty Townships


There will be a public meeting hosted by the 
Independence Township committee and the Liberty Township committee on 
March 5th at 7:00PM 
at the Independence Fire House, 24 Cemetery Road, Great Meadows 
to discuss moving the school board election date back to April which will once 
again allow the public to vote on the school budget. The school budget makes 
up approximately 60-65% of a property owners annual property tax bill. 
Since 2010 when legislation was passed to move school board elections to 
November, residents have not been allowed to vote on this budget. The 
township committees can vote to restore the election back to April once 
again allowing the public to vote on the school budget. The township 
committees want to hear from the residents of both towns on the issue, 
please plan on attending this very important meeting.

Thank you

JCPL Helicopter Patrol




Please be advised that on Monday 2/25, weather permitting, Haverfield will be mobilizing and will begin performing routine patrols on all 500kV and 230kV transmission lines. The patrols are expected to take 7-10 days to complete but as always, completion can be impeded due to inclement weather and any patrol work related to outages and/or storm restoration. The following helicopter will be used for the routine patrols:

Black Hughes MD500 with tail registration: N5027P – photo below

A routine patrol is a general, overall look at the transmission line, right-of-way, structures, and all associated hardware where the inspection crew is trying to look for any obvious/outstanding maintenance conditions. A Routine Patrol is typically flown around 25-30 knots (30-35mph) but the helicopter may be seen hovering or circling structures or spans of a transmission line to get a better look at any conditions found during the patrol(s).

It should be noted that the contractor has been authorized to patrol the transmission circuits in their entirety (i.e. "breaker-to-breaker"), so patrols on certain lines may therefore extend into the neighboring regions. The flight crew provides information on their daily location to both Transmission Lines Maintenance and the FCC, and the pilot will be in communication with any local airports when in their airspace.
