The review and creation of ordinances is a continuous process designed to better serve the needs of our community. There are many steps involved in the process of moving a proposed ordinance to an approved ordinance which includes committee meetings and rounds of editing. Once a proposed ordinance is ready for an official vote by the Borough Council, the date for the vote is advertised in The Spirit at least seven days prior to the meeting. Residents are encouraged to review the proposed ordinances and attend the Borough Council Meeting to share any feedback they may have. Copies of the proposed ordinances as well as The Spirit can be obtained at the Borough Office.
Below is a list of draft legislation, that has not been finalized, and is only in initial draft, prior to official publication. We welcome public comment on these drafts as they work through the process.
