Multiple Carroll Twp. residents voiced a shared complaint during the public forum of the May 5 Carroll Twp. supervisors' meeting.

 

The residents addressed the Board concerning an ongoing public property dispute that has had residents in the Mulberry Alley area of the township at odds with one another for months.  The alleyway has been used as an easement to the neighbors in the Cypress Avenue area for decades, according to several residents in attendance at the meeting. The residents are claiming to have blocked access to parts of their properties due to a neighbor's placement of a chain fence and vehicles that are blocking the alley.

The residents brought their complaint to the Board in hopes of the borough intervening on their behalf. Township Solicitor Herman Bigi explained that the matter is a civil issue between neighbors since the township doesn't have ownership of the easement.

Chairman Thomas Rapp told the residents that they may have to obtain attorneys if they intend to pursue the matter on their own, saying, "the township doesn't have a dog in that fight."

Another resident, Maya Patch, praised Solicitor Bigi for his attendance at a magistrate hearing concerning a blighted property on Carolina Avenue that has been a concern of Patch for years.

The magistrate's judgment was against the property owner and will require the owner to bring the property up to code or face $1,000 daily fines if the improvements are not made.

In other business, District Attorney Gene Vittone presented the supervisors with a $281 check – the amount being a portion collected from drug forfeitures in the county. The funds help to offset the cost of the Drug Task Force. District Attorney Vittone commended Police Chief Paul Brand for his involvement in the fight against drugs with a prescription drug collection program in the township.
