Twp. hears
complaints
about bar
GERI GIBBONS
Times Leader Correspondent

KINGSTON TWP.
— Resident Pat Devitt
addressed township super-
visors on Wednesday night
with complaints about the
Checkerboard Bar, which
he said was located directly
across the street from his
home.
Devitt, of Carverton Road,
said it was necessary to effec-
tively abandon his home on
Friday and Saturday nights
because the bar’s noise “pen-
etrates my home.” He said
the area was zoned as resi-
dential.
“I believe several township
regulations preclude this
type of activity which inter-
feres with the quiet reason-
able enjoyment of my home,”
he said.
Devitt and his wife shared
an audio tape that they said
reflected a high level of noise
coming from the bar.
“You are now responsible
for what happens on upcom-
ing weekends,” he said.
Police Chief Jim Balavage
said he was aware the bar
had previously been cited
for excessive noise by the
Pennsylvania Liquor Control
Board.
“We will have our adminis-
trative staff look into this and
report back to the board,”
said member Jim Reino.
In another matter, the
board approved the renewal
of PennDOT’s winter servic-
es agreement in anticipation
of upcoming weather events.
The board also approved
the installation of two GPS
units, facilitating traffic
flow in the township by
PennDOT. The township
will absorb 20 percent of the
cost the project, or $900.
The board approved the
purchase of nine computers
for the administration and
police department at a cost of
$6,024. Township Manager
Kathleen Sebastian said the
items were budgeted.
The board took a moment
to commemorate the 12th
anniversary of the Sept. 11,
2001, terrorist attacks.
The next meeting of the
board will be on Oct. 9 at
7:30 p.m.
