Third District Fire Unit Signs Charter Petition
A petition for a charter for the Third District Fire Company, Bristol Township will be presented to the county courts shortly.
The group, which has been meeting for the past couple of months signed the petition at its meeting that [was held] in Delhaas High School. If chartered it would be the fifth fire company in the township and serve the Bath Road section of the municipality.
The Township Board of Commissioners has tentatively approved the group’s request for a charter, but the final approval must come from the courts.
The commissioners recently created five fire districts in the township following the controversy over the new Levittown Number 2 Company. At that time there were only three companies, Newportville, Edgely, and Croydon. Since then the Levittown Company has been chartered.
Louis Amadio was named chairman of the new group and Edwin Martin, treasurer.
A by-laws commit, under Robert Weise, was set up. Serving on the committee, are Joseph Dougherty, Wesley Gruber, Michael Valerie, Stanley Zober, and Amadio.
Amadio also heads the charter and organization committee. Assisting him are Zober, Randolph Phillips, Joseph Klein, Matthew Liszewski, and William Chance.
