Council Workshop Meeting

 Mt. Olive Township Council                                                           
Conference Meeting
July 11, 2017                                                                   




Discussion: (3)

1. Noise Ordinance - On June 29 I sent out to the Council an email advising that the Board of Health in 2016 had adopted the revised state standard noise ordinance for use in Mount Olive Township (see attached copy).  As I read the existing ordinances versus the new ordinance, the one significant difference is regulation of construction activity on weekends.  Also attached is a memo I sent to the Township Attorney on this topic which raises a number of issues that may need attention concerning weekend construction activity. The issue to the governing body is whether councilmembers feel that additional regulation is required for weekend activity and if so, how much.  Hopefully the Attorney can provide guidance on the options available to the governing body in this matter.  If additional information becomes available before the meeting, I will send it to everyone via email

2. Ordinance permitting and regulating billboards.  Attached is a memo from the Township Planner and a draft ordinance governing billboards in the Township.  I have taken the liberty of listing this on the agenda for consideration with the understanding that if the governing body has questions that cannot be answered at this time, the draft can be removed for consideration at a later meeting.

3. Affordable Housing Police and Fire Contracts – J. Nicastro

 Resolutions: (3)

1. Resolution closing the bridge on Flanders-Drakestown Road at the intersection with River Road and Wolfe Road between July 31, 2017 and December 1, 2017 (A standard resolution required when a road closing is for an extended time period)

2. Resolution approving a vendor service contract pursuant to pay to play law (United Rentals) (A standard award of contract resolution for reoccurring purchases)

3. Resolution authorizing the closing of Stanley Place for a block party (A standard resolution.  The Police advise that all of the standard requirements have been met)

Ordinance for First Reading: (1)
 (if agreed to after discussion on this topic)

1. An Ordinance to amend and supplement Chapter 550 “Land Use” to revise article VII, “Zoning District use and Bulk Regulations,” and to permit billboards in certain zone districts as a conditional use and to provide specific standards for both static and digital billboards to identify those zone districts wherein either static or digital billboards shall be permitted as a conditional use.  In addition this ordinance amends article II “Definitions” of Chapter 550 to strike the existing definition of “billboard” and to provide new definitions for both static and digital billboards and does also amend article VI “Zoning.” 

2. Ordinance for Second Reading: (1) Ord.#16-2017

  • To amend and supplement Ordinance 2005-22 entitled “An Ordinance of the Township of Mount Olive authorizing a lease agreement between The Township of Mount Olive and The Mount Olive Child Care and Learning Center, Inc.” to extend the term of the lease and payment schedule and to provide an option for additional lease term. 

Administration Report:
