For years most residents of Forest City suspected that a number of homes and businesses in the borough were discharging raw sewage into storm drains, rather than sewer lines that empty into a treatment plant off Route 247 in Clinton Township.
A lawsuit brought against the borough by Scott Linde has confirmed the suspicion and a federal judge has ordered the borough to take corrective action. Subsequent dye tests of a number of homes in the borough also have shown that raw sewage is going into storm drains.
The February 5 Montrose Borough meeting was filled with issues of progress and personnel. The Renter's Ordinance finally found tentative resolution, the Youth Curfew Ordinance was revived, and one borough member, two hitherto probationary police officers, a member of the planning commission, and a new zoning officer found a warm welcome.
