The deadline is approaching if residents of Summit Township want their $6,000 tap-in fee for the new sewage system to be paid for by the Community Development Block Grant.

The township is working on a $16 million sewage system overhaul project that will serve hundreds of residents and businesses in the area, and is expected to be completed in 2025.

Many residents expressed frustration about the mandatory $6,000 tap-in fee at a July 29 town hall-style meeting at the township, but Wendy Leslie, Butler County's Community Development Block Grant administrator, said low- and moderate-income residents of the township could apply to have that fee completely covered by the grant.

The grant application is due Oct. 1, and is available online and at the Summit Township office.
