Request for Help

I am making a plea for help.  The zoning change still needs to be finalized.  The last meeting was to establish an ordnance now the ordnance needs to be approved.  I believe this will happen at the next Supervisor meeting on July 25th at 6:00.  This has not been posted on the Township website yet. …
