Springdale Council to consider 8 ordinances Tuesday

| Monday, July 17, 2017, 12:15 p.m.

Springdale residents may find themselves saying “eight is enough” after the borough council meeting tonight.

Eight ordinances are up for consideration and possible enactment.

Residents will have a chance to voice their opinions on all of them during public hearings at the start of the meeting, according to the posted meeting agenda.

The proposed ordinances would:

• Regulate the placement of waste Dumpsters and the storage of other items within the right-of-way of any public street.

• Establish guidelines and procedures for help with locked out vehicles, providing for a release and establishing a fee.

• Establish standards for applications granting renewal and revocation of handicapped parking spaces on public roadways.

• Amend a previous ordinance restricting the parking of trailers on any public street, alley or right-of-way.

• Amend previous ordinances on parking regulations, violations and penalties.

• Prohibit the consumption of alcoholic beverages on public property, possession of open containers and disorderly conduct, and regulate disorderly houses and gatherings, nuisance properties and noise.

• Amend the canvassing and soliciting regulations, including definitions, rules, regulations and penalties for violations.

• Require street address numbers on all buildings.

Copies of the proposed ordinances can be viewed at the borough office between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
