Lower Mount Bethel focuses on zoning issues
Names CodeMaster to oversee zoning services
In a step intended to improve zoning services in the township, Lower Mount Bethel supervisors Monday night appointed an Allentown-area company to take over enforcement of zoning ordinances.
By unanimous vote, the supervisors appointed CodeMaster Inspection Services, Inc., of 1209 Hausman Road, South Whitehall Township, at $50 an hour. The supervisors chose CodeMaster over Keystone Code Consulting and Enforcement.
In a related matter, supervisors’ chairman Stu Gallaher briefly discussed the township’s zoning ordinance and the importance of having it updated.
Gallaher said the township must “make this a priority” and suggested the update should be undertaken no later the beginning of next year.
The supervisors also discussed the need for an emergency management coordinator but took no action.
