John Mack - Newtown Supervisor


My name is John Mack and on November 5, 2019, I was re-elected to serve a 6-year term as a Newtown Supervisor. I would like to thank all the citizens who came out and voted on Tuesday and especially those who voted for me. I will do my best to work in the best interest of all Newtown residents.

Honesty · Integrity · Experience

As a Supervisor, I keep busy learning about and making decisions about issues of concern to residents, including the pollution of our streams and lakes, perfluoronated hydrocarbons (PFAS) in our drinking water, preservation of open space, traffic and parking, public safety, fiscal management, and development. On average, I spend more than 40 hours every month on official Supervisor activities including interacting with residents, preparing for meetings, and attending meetings (read "What's the Hourly 'Wage' of a Newtown Township Supervisor?").

2020 Road Program

Engineer's Report: 2020 Liquid Fuels Road Program Re-Bid – Bid Award Ms. Colubriale reported three bids were received on June 18 and after discussion with Township staff it was decided to complete the work included under the base bid and alternate bids 7, 8, and 9. The alternate bids were selected due to the ongoing sewer authority work that is affecting the roadways of alternate bids 1, 2, 3, and 4. The total is roughly 2.8 township miles and the low bidder for the combination of Base Bid and Alternates, is James D. Morrissey, Inc.

When will construction begin?

Ordinaarily, road construction would have aready begun and near completion by now (August), but because of COVID-19 tax shortfalls, tax revenue earmarked for roadwork was diverted to cover general expenses and the original bids had to be rejected and the process restarted, which delayed things. A recent Engineer's report notes that a "pre-construction" meeting with the contractor was held on August 6, 2020. I assume that a schedule was decided upon at that meeting and that the Township will reveal the schedule to the public before or at the August 26, 2020, BOS public meeting.
