Borough Administration Discusses Anadromous Stream “Fix” Ordinance
The Borough Assembly, last week, voted down an effort to repeal the controversial anadromous streams protection ordinance. During last week’s meeting, the assembly also introduced and postponed a public hearing on the ordinance forwarded by the Anadromous Stream Protection Task Force’s recommendation, aimed at amending the controversial ordinance. Borough Chief of Staff Paul Ostrander facilitated the streams task force…
Ostrander: “There’s a significant amount of public concerns that have been addressed by this ordinance, if you look though it very closely and I gave a presentation and, I went though each of the specific points that were addressed with this ordinance and, there are a number of the that specifically address concerns that the public had. I feel like this ordinance much better balances private property rights with the protection of the resource, which as you know, is owned by everyone. So this ordinance has gone a long way to addressing many of those issues.”
The assembly will debate this ordinance on July 2nd.
