The board announced the success of the annual clean up, with Secretary/Treasurer Patricia Davis advising, “The annual spring cleanup was held on Saturday, May 7th from 7 am to 2 pm.” She noted that the breakdown of materials collected will be presented at the June meeting.

Davis also announced that Luzerne County is offering tire recycling at 2 locations –on June 4 tires may be recycled at Drums Elementary and on June 11 the drop off site is at Hanover Area Jr./Sr. High School. Residents must preregister by calling 800-821-7654, she explained.

The meeting was preceded by a public hearing on amendments to the zoning ordinance. Atty. Karpowich explained that the amendments, “repeal the Planned Residential Development section of the ordinance. The supervisors don’t want to allow future PRD applications, however this will not affect the one that is in place now.”

The revisions also effect the permitted height of fences on commercial zones and allows the ownership of more than 2 horses on an Agricultural zoned property with a residence on it.

The board will meet next on Monday, June 13th.
