Public Comments Sought

We are in the preliminary stages of updating the animal-keeping ordinance and would like to accept any public comments. The current DRAFT of the ordinance is linked below as a PDF document. If you would like to submit any feedback prior to the formal adoption process, please email us and include “Animal Ordinance” in the subject line. Including that subject line will allow us to track all feedback.

Please keep in mind that this proposed ordinance does NOT apply to dogs and cats, which are covered under other ordinances.

Under the Pennsylvania Borough Code, all proposed ordinance must be open to public comment for one month prior to adoption. Considering the nature of this ordinance, we are soliciting public feedback even prior to the formal public comment period.
