A reasonable council response | In Marietta according to a brief in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster: “Angry residents voiced their opinions about a recent zoning ordinance enforcement sweep at a standing-room-only Borough Council meeting Tuesday. Residents had recently received letters from the borough explaining ordinance violations. Council decided not to enforce the camper ordinance and to bring it to the Planning Commission for possible revisions. Mazis advised residents who were upset about the ordinance to attend a Planning Commission meeting.” Governance is for the people not for those currently governing.
