Do you already
Maybe some Montrose residents thought that borough councils decision a couple of months ago to opt out of new UCC Codes meant that the statewide codes would not apply to the town. (They do.) Perhaps others were taking advantage of the absence of a codes enforcement officer when Shane Lewis resigned the day after the opt-out decision was made.
All members were present at the September 7 meeting of the Thompson Boro Council with the exception of Diane Sabatelli; secretary Diane Sheldon was also absent.
Continuing discussion from last months meeting, regarding a resident whose (second) sewer hookup had been completed under an emergency situation without a permit, president Dennis Price reported that he had spoken with the boro solicitor and the resident, and an agreement had been reached where the resident would pay a monthly installment of $100 until the fee had been satisfied. If council had pursued the matter through legal proceedings, most likely, due to the residents limited income, the monthly payment would have been much lower. And, there would have been additional legal costs involved; after discussion, a motion carried to accept the agreement on condition that payments are made to the boro in a timely manner.
