Robert c. Ruehl jr., chairman of the authority said that because Middletown with a potential 990 customers will not go along with the plan the construction Date for the sewer line has been a indefinitely postpone indefinite Date this turn of events came about when the Middletown Board after a two hour discussion with residents and a to minute executive session said it had not reached a decision on the project and moved to table the matter to an indefinite Date. The decision which the county authority had asked for was a commitment of a certain num Ber of customers to tie in in the next three or four years. The authority had been pushing for a Quick decision by the Board in order to have the sewer line available to the Nesh Aminy school District sometime in 1966.

Other Means without a guarantee that the interceptor will be available the District will have to look for other Means which school officials say will be More costly. Tho possible alternatives Are a tie in with of a Penndel Borough sewers or permanent treatment plants at the school Sites. By Middletown a failure to commit itself the county authority stands to lose $570,000 in Federal Aid for the $5 million program. Another result is that the authority May not get commitments from other municipalities for 2,300 customers which is said to be the minimum number for making the project economically feasible. The Nesh Aminy school District had promised $290,000 for the project and the Bucks county commissioners had offered a subsidy of $180,000 for the first to years.
