Palmer supervisors take action on three properties

Owners have 20 days to address issues

PALMER TWP., Pa. - Palmer Township supervisors Tuesday night took code enforcement action against three properties, asking that the owners address the issues within 20 days or face a court injunction.

Solicitor Charles Bruno requested the board’s action for a dilapidated warehouse at 2120 Northwood Ave., which police Chief Larry Palmer said is unsafe; a residential property at 1207 Pine Grove Drive, which has received 22 violation notices since September 2016 for having unlicensed vehicles on site, rubbish in the yard and no certificate of occupancy for a second-story addition; and 3701 Greenway St., which has received 38 violation notices since 2014 for unlicensed vehicles on site, garbage in the yard and overgrown vegetation.

Other business

The board authorized Bruno to monitor a tax assessment appeal by Bon-Ton for its property at Palmer Park Mall. 

The retailer is appealing the Northampton County Revenue Appeals Board’s decision to reduce the assessment from $1.3 million to $1.2 million. Bruno said a tax assessment change on a large commercial property could affect the taxes paid to the township, school district and county.
