On Wednesday, September 20, 2017, a second meeting was held at 7:00 pm in the Honey Brook Township Administration Building’s meeting room, 500 Suplee Road. John McHugh set the objectives for the evening and Lew Wertley moderated the meeting. A review of the Honey Brook Township Ordinance was conducted.
Several comments were given on the inconsistencies of the currently adopted ordinance. A guide that explains the regulations and processes was called out as needed. Discussion on containing noise and volume of traffic was also heard.
For the next meeting the discussion will be conducted on the State Dog Law and other areas of regulation concerning dog breeding and kennel ownership. Lew Wertley offered to circulate copies of the documents provided the Township can supply the copies prior to the next meeting.
It was pointed out that several residents did not know about the September 20, 2017 meeting and questioned how the Township can get the word out to the residents.
The dog kennel owners offered the opportunity for residents to stop by their kennels to observe the conditions of their facilities. Residents can call the Township building to make arrangements for these visits.
At the conclusion of the meeting, Lew Wertley took the names of the residents who expressed an interest in serving on the Dog Kennel Task Force. The next meeting several residents will comprise the Task Force Committee while residents will be able to listen to the discussion.
The next meeting will be Wednesday, October 4, 2017 at 7:00 pm at the Honey Brook Township Administration Building at 500 Suplee Road.
