Enforcement of Township Codes  

  Enforcement of Township Codes -
A perennial problem has been enforcement of codes -  parking, barking, noise, lights, litter, solicitors,  etc  - which is done ( at least in part, if not entirely ) by the police once the code department has instituted the codes.
It should not be up to the residents to know  who is responsible for any individual violation  ( police, code enforcement department, parks director, public works ...)  Once it is reported to anyone it should be  sent to the right person and the resident should have a response that it is taken care of .
 

    Instead, residents all over the township have been ignored - and even berated by the Chief of Police.  Many of these repeated violations ( weeds and grass not kept properly , trash, etc ) could be reported by township personnel  who travel the roads regularly - so there is no excuse for some to have gone on as long as they have .  In the case of St Michaels there were provisions of zoning went unenforced for over 22 years. In our parks, areas have become so disgusting that citizens or groups have gathered volunteers to clean them, while the people whose job it is to keep them clean are not called to task.  All of our house values are affected when our township codes are not enforced - as is our quality of life .

    If you have such an issue please contact us & share your problems and ideas for solutions.  
We have had residents that have gone for years and years in this township with the same violators not being required to  change their habits, yet no fines were issued and no explicit change in the process is being offered to residents .
