Supervisors also discuss barbed wire ordinance, utility damage


The White Township last night granted approval for a flea market at the township recreation complex starting the second week of July. Supervisor George Lenz said the arrangements for the flea market have been finalized after a four-year effort. It is hoped this will bring in additional revenue through renting out stalls in the recreation complex to vendors.


There was discussion during public comment about barbed wire fences as a nuisance. Multiple supervisors brought up the point that it is difficult to write ordinances around specific nuisances because the township is wide ranging between country and residential, and one size does not fit all. The supervisors agreed that barbed wire fences in a residential area were a safety concern. A motion was passed for the township manager and assistant manager to look into drafting a possible ordinance.


There were also more problems with contractors boring into sewage lines, according to Township Manager Milt Lady. On Luzerne Road, a company is installing fiber optic cable and ruined between 40 and 60 feet of sewage pipe. When this happens, usually the company responsible for the boring must pay for the manpower and materials to repair the lines.
