chandler bridge meeting update
We had a successful meeting on March 25th regarding the Chandler Mill Bridge. Everyone was encouraged to give presentations, read letters and ask questions. We gained a lot of valuable input. Once the meeting is transcribed by the Court reporter it will be posted on the website. The next step will be a meeting with the Supervisors and the County Commissioners to better understand the County’s position. Further updates will be posted on the website.

The Township has recently discovered that they cannot prohibit all soliciting as the Township Soliciting Ordinance reads. The Township can require solicitors to be registered and licensed by the State and they must register with the Township and provide proof that they are registered and licensed by the State prior to soliciting in the Township. The Township is in the process of revising the ordinance to reflect this requirement.
Residents are permitted to place signs at the entrance to their properties either at the driveway or on the mailboxes stating no soliciting. Anyone violating this and entering a property that is labeled no soliciting will be charged with trespassing. If a solicitor enters a property labeled no soliciting the resident must ask for their badge id and report it to the Police. If you live on a private road you can put a no soliciting sign at the entrance to the private road/development. Developments on public roads cannot put a no soliciting sign at the entrance; it will not be enforceable; you must place the sign at each residence.

If you are a person with special needs (including elderly or disabled) and would require assistance during a State of Emergency, please contact the Township office via email @ Kennettfirstname.lastname@example.org or via phone 610-388-1300 x112. We will place you on a county list so that emergency providers are aware that you require assistance.
