Whitehall Twp. Commissioners forward legislation to general meeting

WHITEHALL, Pa. - The Whitehall Township Board of Commissioners forwarded three ordinances, two motions and one resolution to next week's regular board meeting during Monday night's workshop session.

One ordinance would authorize the purchase of two 2015 Ford sedan police interceptor vehicles for the patrol division, another would establish an emergency management agency within the township, while the final ordinance would allow Mayor Edward Hozza, Jr. to enter into a license agreement with township residents Guy and Courtney Pascarella concerning drainage and utility easement.

The motions that were forwarded centered around the release of escrow funds for completed and withdrawn projects and the approval of the township's pro-rated shared costs incurred with the support of the Whitehall Township Industrial and Commercial Development Authority Waterway Symposium and City Revitalization and Improvement Zone (CRIZ) projects.

A lengthy discussion involving a township resident's ability to secure a formal easement for sewage line hookup that crosses township property dominated discussions Monday night.

Commissioners debated how to be expedient and fair to the applicants coupled with the responsibility of protecting township residents against any potential liability costs associated with the other project.

No action was taken Monday night. The regular board meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. on June 9th.
