Moore Supervisors' chair urges neighbors to report yard waste facility violators

MOORE TWP., Pa. - Uncle Sam may not be the only one watching you these days -- at least in Moore Township.

Your neighbors, especially those living near the township's municipal headquarters, are being encouraged by Moore officials to report violators in order to keep costs down.

The facility accepts only certain kinds of yard waste.

Supervisors' Chair Dave Tashner on Tuesday requested that residents report to township officials when they see their neighbors dropping off prohibited types of yard refuse, including cement pieces, tree stumps, pressure-treated lumber and grass clippings.

Tashner said reporting waste violators will prevent the township from having to hire drop-off inspectors and attendants, thus saving taxpayers money. The monitoring would ensure only acceptable forms of refuse are dumped at the township's site.

In other matters, the board agreed to hire two part-time police officers to join the township police force.

Kevin O'Hay of Bushkill Township and Jacob Hartzell of Pen Argyl will be paid an entry-level rate of about $23 per hour on less than full-time schedules.

Finally, Tashner also warned residents about the reconstruction of the Route 512 bridge located near Bushkill Drive; it will begin in mid-June and will last until the end of the year.

He said local travelers should be expect possible delays when the bridge is reduced to one-lane and traffic is controlled by temporary lights.
