Business from the Floor:

She was advised to contact the Zoning Officer for a building permit for the green house and meet all requirements which include setbacks.

Resident Charles Eichelberger, of 268 Kralltown Rd, questioned his bill and commented on the Stormwater Ordinance.

Karen Riddle, Zoning Officer, asked for clarification on the revised 2009 Ordinances. It appears there was a typographical error on Section 303, c. Solicitor Myers stated that no action was taken to remove the information, only an error, so the information on original ordinance would apply. Resident Earl Hoover also questioned this information in regards to himself. He was informed he would need a Zoning Hearing at the cost of $600.00.

Supervisor Dan McGregor informed residents of the June 1st deadline to submit applications to be included in the Ag Security Program.
