Public Hearing Continued in Montgomeryville
The Montgomery Township Supervisors have approved an indefinite continuance for a conditional use hearing on a 135-foot cell phone tower proposed near Upper State Road and Bethlehem Pike. The telecom company that wants to build the structure also needs a variance from the Zoning Hearing Board and the township supervisors have gone on record opposing any relief. The continuance will give both parties an opportunity to work out their differences. Township officicials say the zoning hearing board issue revolves around the placement and dimensions of equipment structures on the ground. The hearing before the zoning board has also been continued indefinitely.
Towamencin Township Office Closed Thursday
The administrative office at the Towamencin Municipal Complex on Troxell Road is closed Thursday. Staff will be there though sorting through papers and determining what no longer needs to be kept. Township officials would rather not close for a document management day but say the job needs to get done before it piles up any further. They are using their website and telephone system to get the word out about the closing. They also posted a sign on the door at the municiapl complex earlier this month.
