The North Lebanon Township Board of Supervisors unanimously agreed on Monday to advertise Ordinance 6-2023 updating the township’s code of ordinances.
The ordinance would make several minor changes to the code. The changes include:
- The NLT tax collector’s compensation will be set and amended by resolution from the supervisors.
- The Right to Know policy will be fully repealed, as it is already included by a township resolution.
- The township can charge those who set off display or consumer fireworks with disorderly conduct, following Pennsylvania Act 74 of 2022.
- Maximum speed limits on parts of Briar Rose Avenue, Ginger Court, Harvest Drive, Lockwood Drive, Mallard Lane, Orchid Circle, Rolling Meadows Road, Snapdragon Court, and Sweetbay Lane are set at 15 mph.
- Several roads are officially listed as stop streets on various intersections.
- Prohibits parking between no parking signs on Orchid Circle and Ginger Court.
- Parking is officially prohibited at pumping stations at North 8th Avenue, Francis Ann, Hill Street, Jay Street, Kochenderfer Road, Rockwood and Water Street.
- The ordinance affirms the Pennsylvania Motor Vehicle Code’s policies on parking in handicapped parking without proper permits and parking non-inspected, non-registered, or non-licensed vehicles on township streets.
A public hearing will be held at next month’s meeting on Aug. 21 before the supervisors vote on it.
While several citizens attending the meeting hoped for news on the Jubilee property, nothing has reached the township’s desk as of the July meeting.
