Property code violations and nuisance issues were the topic of the public forum at the November 7 Carroll Township Board of Supervisors Meeting. Two township residents addressed the board about their concerns with neighboring properties.
One resident who lives near a lot currently housing sheds for sale complained about ordinance violations on the property, including weeds and overgrown grass. Zoning Officer Dennis Butler replied that the weeds should not be an issue until spring and that the township is working on other issues with the sheds on the property.
Another resident, Maya Patch, also spoke at the public forum, discussing her on-going concerns with the empty lot on Carolina Avenue near her home that has overgrown weeds. She is also concerned about the animal/rodent population in her neighborhood and the need to pay for pest control services to protect her property.
Mrs. Patch asked the supervisors to issue fines to properties violating ordinances and creating unsightly and unsafe conditions for the neighborhood.
