These ordinances were proposed at the workshop meeting earlier in the month.
“I hope the fact that the planning board meeting was on TV, the show that John [Laezza] and I had… and last month’s council meeting has the township in understanding whats going on,” said Mayor Sal Bonaccorso. He added that while they all may not have liked the situation, they did their best to do what was right for the town.
“Thank you for all the hard work that a lot of people put in,” said Bonaccorso.
The Council also introduced a proposed ordinance that establishes standards for the registration and maintenance of vacant and abandoned residential properties in foreclosure by creditors. This ordinance is on the agenda for the June 5 workshop meeting.
