Resident Bob DeRemer asked the Ross Township supervisors Tuesday night to do something about excessive speeding on the stretch of Main Road between Lamoreaux Road and Moyers Road.

The supervisors agreed with DeRemer that speeders make getting out onto that part of the road difficult.

‚??By the time you‚??re halfway out on the road, (the drivers) are on top of you blowing their horns,‚?Ě he said. ‚??You know they must be really zipping.‚?Ě

The supervisors agreed to make a formal request to state police to monitor the stretch more closely.

The supervisors adopted an agreement with the Back Mountain Firemen‚??s Association to protect mutual funds by prohibiting any firefighter receiving workers‚?? compensation from responding to emergency calls.

‚??It‚??s a state law,‚?Ě said Supervisor Stanford Davis. ‚??You shouldn‚??t be out covering a fire if you‚??re on workmen‚??s comp.‚?Ě

Davis said the agreement was to encourage firefighters a little more to stay off the job while receiving workers‚?? compensation, avoiding further injury claims.
