Representing the Supervisors will be Granville Hogg and Rick Hubbard, and from the PSA are Bob Panek and Sean Ingram.
The March 24 meeting was the first since Bob Panek resigned as PSA chairman January 28. County Supervisors forced his resignation by cutting off PSA funding so long as Panek was chairman. Panek remains a member of the PSA, appointed by the Town of Cape Charles. Panek reportedly has recommended that Town Council immediately appoint Joan Natali and Frank Wendell to the joint committee without waiting for elections.

Assistant Town Manager Bob Panek has yet to convince Town Council to subsidize out-of-town sewage collection. (Wave photo) Despite Assistant Town Manager Bob Panek's best efforts, Cape Charles Town Council once again has sidestepped any decision on how much to charge to accept sewage from out-of-town commercial properties on and near Route 13. Panek recommended providing the county with "updated cost estimates" to process sewage, but Town Council balked at their August 21 meeting, voting instead to hold a work session to further consider the matter. The "update" would be to an earlier cost estimate that Panek provided the County Public Service Authority without authorization from Town Council. That was when Panek was also chairman of the PSA, a position he lost following complaints of conflict of interest. But he remains the town's representative to the PSA. Mayor George Proto and Councilman Steve Bennett also expressed reservations at last Thursday's meeting, which prevented Panek from getting his wish. Panek did not explain to the new councilman that Town Council had already twice indicated a willingness to accept county sewage, first informally at a June 24, 2010, work session, and later, at Panek's insistence, on August 9, 2012, with a formal motion.

PSA Chairman Bob Panek told Northampton County Board of Supervisors January 8 that a 1-cent real estate tax increase could help fund sewer infrastructure for commercial properties on Highway 13.
Panek proposes that the Board approve a sewer line from Highway 13 to the new Cape Charles treatment plant. Additional funding would come from "private capital contributions from the business owners," Panek told Cape Charles Town Council February 21. Panek is also Assistant Town Manger for Cape Charles. Reached at Town Hall by the Wave, he was not willing to discuss non-Town business. Funding could be arranged through a "moral obligation bond," Panek told the Board of Supervisors. He said that the PSA could arrange primary funding through government bonds.
