Nuangola Council, lead by Vice
President Joseph Tucker in the absence
of President John Kochan, met in a
brief special meeting on Monday,
April 22nd to revise an ordinance
regulating the borough’s contracted
Owing to the lack of a council quorum,
Tucker explained, the board neglected
to send out refuse bills consistence
with the due dates embedded in the
existing law. As a result, a revised
ordinance sets up delayed datelines for
payment of essentially the discounted
rate, face and penalty rates.
With the refuse bills arriving in
borough mailboxes, the amended
ordinance read and adopted at the
meeting, calls for an initial payment
of $155, permitted from May 1
to July 31st; a rate of $165 will be
assessed from August 1 to October
31st. “Payments made after October
31, 2013 shall be in the amount of
$206.25,” Solicitor David Lantz read.
Resident and veteran former secretary-
treasurer Carolyn Lauer advised that
her refuse bill doesn’t match the dates
on the ordinance.
Atty. Lantz agreed that there are errors
on the refuse bills and corrections will
be sent out to curb any confusion.
