PUBLIC NOTICE NOTICE is hereby given by the Board of Supervisors of Lynn Township, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania that it is their intention to consider and act upon proposed Ordinance No. 18-02 entitled "AN ORDINANCE OF THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS OF LYNN TOWNSHIP, LEHIGH COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA AMENDING THE CODE OF ORDINANCES, TOWNSHIP OF LYNN TO INCREASE THE MAXIMUM LOT COVERAGE FOR SINGLE-FAMILY DETACHED DWELLINGS IN THE RURAL (R) AND RURAL RESIDENTIAL (RR) ZONING DISTRICTS" at a public meeting to be held on May 10, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. in the Lynn Township Municipal Building located at 7911 Kings Highway, New Tripoli, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania. Briefly summarized, the proposed Ordinance would amend the Lynn Township Codified Ordinance to increase the maximum lot coverage for single family dwellings in the Rural (R) and Rural Residential (RR) Zoning Districts from ten (10%) percent to fifteen (15%) percent, but allow for an increase to twenty (20%) percent if approved by the Zoning Officer in consultation with the Township Engineer because the lot incorporates a ground water recharge system from impervious coverage areas which will have the net effect equal to five (5%) percent lot coverage or less. A certified copy of this Ordinance is on file with the Lynn Township Secretary and may be inspected by the public during normal business hours.

PUBLIC NOTICE ORDINANCE NO. ___________________ AN ORDINANCE OF THE BOROUGH OF CATASAUQUA, LEHIGH COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA, ESTABLISHING A PROGRAM FOR THE ISSUANCE OF TICKETS FOR VIOLATIONS OF CERTAIN BOROUGH ORDINANCES RATHER THAN THE ISSUANCE OF CITATIONS AS AN INITIAL FORM OF DUE PROCESS I. Legislative Findings WHEREAS, Section 1006, of the Borough Code, 8 Pa.C.S.A. §101 et. seq., (hereinafter, "Code"), titled "Duties of the Council," grants to Borough Council (hereinafter, "Council"), the power to enact, revise, repeal and amend ordinances as it deems beneficial to the Borough and to provide for the enforcement of the same; and WHEREAS, Section 1202, titled "Specific powers," authorizes at sub-section (3) the Council to impose fines and penalties; and WHEREAS, Section 1202 authorizes at sub-section (4) the Council to prohibit and/or remove nuisances, dangerous structures, accumulations of garbage and rubbish, the storage of abandoned or junked automobiles and obstructions or nuisances in Borough streets; and WHEREAS, Section 1202 authorizes at sub-section (5) the Council to make regulations necessary for the health, safety, morals, general welfare and cleanliness and beauty, convenience, comfort and safety of the Borough; and WHEREAS, Council has from time-to-time enacted ordinances consistent with the above-specified powers; and WHEREAS, Council acknowledges that the process for litigating violations of such ordinances can be costly to the Borough, residents of the Borough and to those who are prosecuted for the same; and WHEREAS, Council believes that the creation of a ticketing program for minor violations of such ordinances will benefit the community for several reasons, including that a) the costs of enforcement will be reduced, b) the issuance of tickets will provide prompt and efficient notice of violations, c) such notice may result in quicker remediation of violations and d) defense costs will be reduced making it more likely that funds will be spent to correct the violation; and WHEREAS, Council believes that the afore-described benefits can be realized and at the same time preserve due process rights. NOW THEREFORE, the Council of the Borough of Catasauqua, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania hereby enacts and ordains the following: II. Ordinance Text. Section A: Purpose and Scope 1. The purpose of this Ordinance is to provide for a program under which the Borough may, at its sole discretion, issue a ticket in lieu of a citation so as to permit a Person who acknowledges committing a violation of a Borough Ordinance to pay a fine as specified in a Ticket, rather than cause the issuance of a citation or other legal proceeding. 2. The ticketing program established hereunder shall apply only to those Ordinances specifically identified in Section C.3, below, and to the extent that the ticketing program so applies, such Ordinances shall be deemed amended hereby so as to authorize the taking of action by the Borough in a manner consistent with this Ordinance. This Ordinance shall not apply to violations of the Borough's Zoning Ordinance. 3. The form of Ticket shall be prepared by the Borough Manager and shall be consistent with this Ordinance and its objectives as set forth in the Legislative Findings and this Section. Section B: Definitions and Interpretation. 1. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, the following words and phrases, as used in this Ordinance, shall have the meanings hereinafter designated. a. "Enforcement Officer." Any Borough police officer(s), the Fire Marshall, code enforcement officer(s) and other public officer(s) sworn to uphold and enforce the laws of the Borough of Catasauqua. b. "Person." Any individual, partnership, limited liability partnership, firm, company, limited liability company, corporation, association, joint stock company, trust, estate or any other legal entity (whether or not for-profit or non-profit) and, with respect to all of the foregoing, its legal representatives, agents, officers or assigns. c. "Ticket." A notice of violation issued by an enforcement officer for the violation of a specified ordinance and requiring the payment of a fine and or the taking of other, prescribed action within a specified period of time. 2. As used in this Ordinance, and unless the context clearly indicates to the contrary; words in the singular include the plural and vice versa and words in one gender include all genders. 3. Any headings appearing in connection with Parts, Sections and sub-sections of this Ordinance are for convenience only and are not intended to be full or precise descriptions of the text to which they refer and shall not be considered part of this Ordinance. Section C: Establishment of Ticketing Program. 1. Except as set forth in sub-section 2 below, any Person who an Enforcement Officer determines is in violation of one or more of the Chapters identified in sub-section 3 of this Section C shall be served with a Ticket in accordance herewith. 2. Any Enforcement Officer shall have the power to issue a Ticket for a violation of any one or more of the Chapters specified in sub-section 3, below. The decision to issue a Ticket under this Chapter, rather than a citation or other proceeding, shall be in the sole discretion of the Enforcement Officer who may consider, among other things, the nature of the violation, the repeated nature of the violation or similarity to other violations by the Person or related Persons, the Person's failure to mitigate previous violations, the condition of other properties owned by or under the control of, in whole or in part, the Person and the impact of the violation on the Borough or others. 3. The Ticket shall be in writing and shall identify/include the name(s) of the violator(s), the property address or other location of the violation, a concise statement of each violation with a citation to the applicable provision violated, the maximum time in which to complete any corrective action, the amount of the fine, the consequences for non-payment within the prescribed time frame and the right to request a hearing. 4. Provided that the violations arise out of the same set of facts or circumstances, a Ticket may describe multiple violations but shall specify only one penalty. Where separate and distinct offenses stem from multiple facts or circumstances, more than one Ticket may be issued with each Ticket setting forth a separate penalty. 5. The following Chapters of the Codified Ordinances of the Borough of Catasauqua are deemed amended to provide for enforcement hereunder as an alternative to the citation or other enforcement processes provided in said Chapters: a. Chapter 105, titled "Animals;" b. Chapter 110, titled "Bicycles;" c. Chapter 115, titled "Brush, Grass and Weeds;" d. Chapter 165, titled "Hazardous Materials;" e. Chapter 170, titled "Junkyards;" f. Chapter 175, titled "Loitering;" g. Chapter 185, titled "Noise;" h. Chapter 207, titled "Rental Property;" i. Chapter 215, titled "Signs and Billboards;" j. Chapter 220, titled "Solid Waste;" k. Chapter 230, titled "Streets and Sidewalks;" l. Chapter 245, titled "Trees;" m. Chapter 255, titled "Vehicles, Abandoned;" n. Chapter 160, titled "Garage Sales;" o. Chapter 130, titled "Codes Uniform," relating to Article 1, Property Maintenance Code; and p. Chapter 200, titled "Peddling and Soliciting." 6. If in the exercise of his or her discretion an Enforcement Officer determines that the issuance of a Ticket, rather than a citation or other process, is an appropriate response to a violation of any Chapter identified in sub-section 3 of this Section 3, then he or she shall serve a ticket in the form prescribed. Service of the Ticket shall be in the following manner: a. By hand delivery to the Person in violation; b. By hand delivery at the residence of the Person in violation to an adult member of the household or other Person in charge of the residence; c. By posting the ticket in a conspicuous location at the property where the violation exists; d. By hand delivery at any office or place of business of the Person in violation to the Person in charge thereof; or e. By first class mail, postage pre-paid, to the Person in violation at that Person's address of record as maintained by the Borough. 7. Nothing contained herein shall mandate the issuance of a Ticket for an offense or preclude the Borough from utilizing any other enforcement mechanism available at law, in equity or by Ordinance. Section D: Fines and Penalties. 1. Any Person in receipt of a Ticket shall have ten (10) days within which to pay the amount of the Ticket or in the alternative, request a hearing. The failure of a Person to make payment or request a hearing within ten (10) days may result in the issuance of a criminal citation for the offense(s) enumerated on the ticket or other appropriate legal action by the Borough. 2. Except as otherwise set forth herein, the fine shall be Twenty-Five Dollars ($25.00). 3. Nothing contained herein shall be construed to require an Enforcement Officer to continue to issue Tickets after the first offense Ticket, and the Borough may, at any time following issuance of the first offense Ticket, utilize alternative forms of enforcement. Section E: Ticket Hearings and Appeals. 1. The Borough of Catasauqua Code Hearing Board is hereby granted jurisdiction to hold hearings on all Tickets issued by Enforcement Officers and demanded by alleged violators pursuant to this Ordinance. Except as to the time for filing a request for a hearing, the rules and fees applicable to appeals before the Code Hearing Board shall apply to hearings under this Chapter. 2. A party aggrieved by a decision of the Code Hearing Board may file an appeal in accordance with the Pennsylvania Local Agency Act, as amended, and thereafter in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. 3. At any proceeding held pursuant to this Section, the Borough shall be entitled to claim and, if it prevails recover, all costs and expenses of litigation, including court fees and costs, reasonable attorney fees and reasonable consultant fees. III. Effective Date. This Ordinance shall become effective in accordance with Section 3301.3 of the Borough Code. IV. Protanto Repeal. Unless otherwise specifically stated in this Ordinance, all ordinances in conflict with the provisions of this Ordinance are hereby repealed to the extent of such conflict. V. Savings Clause. To the extent that any word, portion or provision of the text hereof is found by any court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or void on constitutional or other grounds, such word, phrase, portion or provision shall, if possible, be deemed to be repealed and those remaining valid portions of the text shall remain in full force and effect if same can be accomplished without the structure of the Ordinance having been destroyed by the elimination of that word, phrase, portion or provision found to be invalid or void.
