WEST MARLBOROUGH: Other township business
Also at the Oct. 4 West Marlborough township meeting:
1. Supervisor Hugh Lofting said the state Department of Environmental Protection is reviewing the township's plans to stabilize the eroding stream bank along Rokeby Road at Richard Wilson Drive. He said hopefully that "we might see shovels in the ground this year."
2. The supervisors said they are revising the township's schedule of the fees that residents must pay to obtain various permits. Supervisor Bill Wylie said the fee schedule that is being developed is "far simpler and less expensive" while still covering the township's costs.
3. A London Grove village resident told the board that he thinks a growing number of motorists are running the stop signs at Newark Road and Route 926, particularly during the morning and evening rush hours. Supervisor Wylie said he sees a similar problem at the four-way stop at Newark Road and Route 842. The supervisors will notify the State Police about the ongoing problem.
4. Susan Elks from the Chester County Planning Commission spoke about the commission's timeline for preparing a third edition of its Landscapes document. The first version of Landscapes was written 20 years ago.
