to the Uniform Construction Code ordinance at next month’s supervisors’ meeting. Sean Logsdon, filling in for solicitor Don Karpowich, said his office had drafted an amendment that would allow residents to choose a building inspector from an approved list, but the amendment “needs to be tweaked” and wouldn’t be ready until the May meeting. The amendment will give residents more choice; currently they must use the one building inspector the township designates. Karpowich said at the March meeting that Dorrance Township will be acting ahead of pending state legislation that will require all municipalities to make such a change.

Heard from resident David Green, who commended the road crew for speedy service during recent snowstorms.
