SANATOGA PA – It’s not that he’s ungrateful for what Lower Pottsgrove (PA) Township already receives in donations from Exelon Nuclear’s Limerick Generating Station (LGS), township Commissioner Anthony Doyle said last week, but he figures if the utility company has more contributions to hand out, it could always send money west.

Doyle, during a comment period allotted to members of the township Board of Commissioners at its Feb. 19 (2009) meeting in the Buchert Road municipal building, noted LGS in recent weeks has pledged corporate contributions of $150,000 annually over the next four years to neighboring Limerick (PA) Township. It also gave $1,000 to the Twin Valley Fire Company near Elverson PA toward construction of a new fire station.

“I’d be great if we could get some too,” Doyle said.

LGS does annually contribute between $10,000 and $20,000 in equipment and other items to Lower Pottsgrove, according to township Manager Rodney Hawthorne. Several of its most recent donations benefited the township police department.

Might Exelon be even more generous? Doyle left his solicitation out there, certainly reasoning that it rarely hurts to ask.
