At the meeting of April 10, Alburtis Borough Council passed a motion adopting Ordinance No. 556 amending section 12-204 for maintenance department employees when they are scheduled to be “on call.”
Maintenance employees are scheduled to be on call when the maintenance department is closed during holidays, weekends, evenings and any other time. The employee on call will be paid $100 for each week they are scheduled on call. If they are called out they will get their hourly wage in addition to the $100, but if they are not called out, they will receive $100.
The April 9 meeting of the Lower Macungie Township Planning Commission involved two ongoing projects; the Weiner Farm subdivision and the Greentree Industrial Park.
Another project on the agenda, The Car Wash on Hamilton, was removed from the agenda at the applicant’s request.
Planning Director Sara Pandl explained the township subdivided the 500-year flood plain and the Weiner Farm property would be divided into five easements. Pandl said 130 acres of the property would be preserved under the farmland preservation act.
Upper Milford Township resident Gerald L. Reinbold Jr. was back before the Upper Milford Supervisors April 18 to ask about the status of his complaint about a neighbor’s unregistered vehicles parking in public streets and his complaint about the neighbor’s chickens.
He was pleased to learn Upper Milford Township had sent a team out to inspect the area and sent certified letters to not only Reinbold’s immediate neighbor but to several other property owners in the area regarding the same issue.
