FORKS TWP. Pa. -

Forks supervisors are preparing to hire a Bethlehem firm to inspect the township's amphitheater.

At their Thursday night work session, supervisors heard from John Dufal of Signature Structures, who offered an early assessment of the problems with the Zucksville Road building.

"Some of them are fixable, some are not," Dufal said.

The $250,000 amphitheater was constructed in 2011 and 2012, and has been plagued by construction problems for years.

Dufal said his company, which typically works with much larger buildings, would likely begin the work by the end of the summer, and provide the township with a report.

Also Thursday, supervisors learned AT&T is interested in putting a cell tower in the township.

The board expressed interest in meeting with the phone company, but wanted more information on what AT&T would pay to house the tower. 

T-Mobile made a similar proposal several years ago, and was voted down.
