DALLAS TWP. — The Board of Supervisors discussed ways to increase safety in and around the municipal building Tuesday.
As the township’s representative for the Back Mountain Community Partnership, Supervisor Liz Martin reported she plans to submit cost estimates for a number of security-related items at the next BMCP meeting.
The cost of the safety-enhancing project will probably run about $30,000, Martin estimated, adding that the proposal would be included in next year’s Local Share Account grant application.
“We have little or no security here,” said Martin. The security measures she’s looking into include new locks, doors, surveillance cameras, a glass sliding window for the front counter in the office and a buzzer monitoring system for the front door.
In other business, the board passed a resolution to include a supplement to the township’s Peddling and Solicitation Ordinance. Solicitor Tom Brennan said the existing ordinance is fine the way it is, but the supplement allows the township to pass the cost of background checks and other investigative reports to the soliciting party.
The board discussed revisiting and possibly updating the township’s Subdivision and Land Development Ordinances. Brennan suggested holding a hearing regarding the matter before next month’s regular meeting.
The board also voted to give equal shares of a $1,000 donation received from Masonic Villages to the township’s two fire companies.
