“When we reviewed the street signs, they were yield signs.  Our traffic department has indicated that these deserve to be stop street signs, so we are changing them,” Business Administrator John Laezza said. “The citizenship should be aware that the new stop street signs will be going up where these yields exist.”

A public hearing on the ordinance will be held during the township council meeting on June 15, 2015.

In other business, the council passed resolutions:

  • endorsing the submission of the recycling tonnage grant application
