Speed limits to be enforced in Clay Township
By: JACQUELINE WATSON Review Correspondent, Staff Writer
The Clay Township board of supervisors once again addressed the subject of a recently passed ordinance of 25 miles per hour speed limits on certain streets in Clay Township during its February meeting.
Included in the new speed limits are roads within the developments of Countryside and Sunnycraft. Resident Herb Noack questioned how long it will be until the new signs are posted on these roads. After discussion, road master Earl Stauffer agreed that now that the signs have arrived and the ground has thawed, he will plan to put them up in the near future and before the March meeting.
"I wanted them in before this meeting, but then after it froze and we got snow and stuff like that," explained Stauffer of the delay.
Dale Ulrich expressed concern that although he saw the Northern Lancaster County Regional Police Department patrol his area frequently when the transition was first made to a regional police department, he has not seen them patrolling his neighborhood recently. The board assured Ulrich that they can easily investigate the matter with the system the NLCRPD has to keep track of where patrols are at all times. The board also encouraged Clay Township residents to attend one of the NLCRPD board of commissioners meetings on the second Thursday of the month. It is a place where residents can become more familiar with the workings of the NLCRPD and present concerns.
"If you have the opportunity, attend one of our meetings. It’s open to the public. I think you’d find it interesting," Keith Martin encouraged Ulrich.
Ulrich also expressed concern over the way those representing the township handled themselves at a recent hearing of the Clay Township Zoning Board. Ulrich felt apologies were due to those on the presenting side of a variance request made.
"I’m not arguing the decision — I’m arguing the process," said Ulrich.
The supervisors plan to obtain and read a transcript of the zoning hearing board meeting in order to make a better informed response.
In other business, the board resolved the details of maintenance and continued growth and development throughout the township. This included approving waivers from the land development plan for a small expansion at Eastern Mennonite Publications.
"Well, we’re thankful for what you’ve allowed us to do so far, and it’s been a blessing … that location has served us very, very well," said a representative of Eastern Mennonite Publications.
