New look for Moore Township website

And new ordinance targets roadside trash dumpers

MOORE TWP., Pa. - Moore Township Supervisors Tuesday night agreed it was time to update the township's Website.

To that effect, they hired the same company many other townships have used to revamp their sites.

Na  Studios of Nazareth, the web design company that has developed Web pages for Bushkill Township, Nazareth, Tatamy and Lower Saucon, among others, will be paid $4,400 to revamp Moore Township's digital presence.

The new look, which will be "totally different" than the current Website,  should be up and running in two or three weeks, said supervisor Dick Gable.

"It will really look nice," he said.

And unlike the current Web site, he said, the township can update anything it wants without outside help.

The supervisors also resumed discussions on two topics, one involving the consumption and sale of alcohol in the pavilion area at the township recreation center, the other regulating the disposal of trash, in an effort to stop people from dumping trash on the side of township roads.

The trash ordinance passed by the supervisors requires all property owners to contract with a licensed hauler to remove their trash.

Violators could be fined $100 to $300 by a district justice.

A vote on the alcohol ordinance, which would require groups wanting to rent the pavilion and serve alcohol to appear before the supervisors for a case-by-case review, is set for Sept. 2.

The impetus behind the ordinance is next year's 250th anniversary of the township.
