In other news, during a public comment session, township resident Michael Sigel told commissioners that gang activity was occurring in the township. He said the gangs were using graffiti on bridges "on either side of the township" which were used to mark the township as their territory in a code other gangs would understand. In response, Commissioner Ronald W. Beitler said that he "didn't want it out there" that there was gang activity in the township without verification from the police. Township Manager Bruce Fosselman said the township would "follow up with the State Police" on the alleged activity.
