WT plan to set
up speedier alert
by KIMBERLY SCHERERA process to alert residents who may be affected by a consent judgment is under review in Washington Township.
Observer Special Writer
Following a variance request for two lots within the Glacier Club subdivision, where affected residents weren't made aware of the plan until much later, the township has taken steps to draft a policy to avoid it in the future.
The Consent Judgment Committee will decide whether or not an expert needs to get involved with the project, such as the fire marshal or building inspector. They will then decide if there is any impact to the surrounding areas and, if so, what type of notification will be appropriate.
Should notification be required, the party requesting the consent judgment will be billed for any associated costs.
Trustee Lisa Rapp originally suggested the idea to put such a policy into place after the Glacier Club variance request was passed. Supervisor Dan O'Leary praised her idea during the Sept. 5 Board of Trustees meeting.
The board voted in favor to formalize the policy.
