Supervisors cut Vera Cruz man More Slack on Sewer Hookup

Township Manager Dan DeLong tells the Upper Milford Board of Supervisors to delay taking official action against Vera Cruz resident for failing to comply with sewer ordinance.

Manager Dan DeLong recommended at last night’s  Board of Supervisors meeting that the board hold off on taking official action against a Vera Cruz resident for failing to comply with a township sewer hookup ordinance.

DeLong reported that he had had a “lengthy conversation” with the resident, who is the only homeowner among the 90 households in the sewer project subdivision known as “Vera Cruz Area I” who failed to respond to any communication related to the sewer project.

“They have a desire to move forward,” DeLong said. “We’ve put them in touch with the authorities that can give them assistance and get them on track.

“I really expect that they will comply. But the first point of the deal that was supposed to happen didn’t happen. I think the board should wait on enforcement,” he said. “I think that they will come around.”

The resident in question was the subject of a lengthy discussion at the supervisors’ March 1 meeting. At that time, the supervisors decided to have township staff try to contact the resident one more time each by phone, by mail and in person before beginning legal proceedings.

No it's called one person not complying after several attempts to get him to do what he is supposed to do. What everyone else involved has done. Your bleeding heart is showing.

And very proud of it.......... Tom maybe if the shoe was on the other foot you would feel different. Either way looks likes the individual is working towards compliance. With much less cost to the township and the taxppayer's in legal fee's.

The shoe would not be on the other foot because I obey the law. If these people would have taken care of their responsibilities in the first place they would not be in the situation they are in.

"because i obey the law", Tom you must lead the most boring life on the planet! get over yourself and try to understand there are some folks out there struggling to feed their families because of situations that are beyond their control. Wait maybe after reading your comment I should have realized you can not think for yourself you need someone to tell you what you can or can not do.
