Tuesday night’s council meeting yielded a mini-trove pf obscure, out-of-the blue laws that took most of the meeting participants aback.
The first was a reading of from the Borough Code concerning budgets and taxes; that section is on page 110.
A second was an explanation of why faith based organizations are not held to the same standards as other under the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA).
Another obscure ordinance, in this case, that sometime may be adhered to for someone is the one that’s been overlooked for so long.
Not observed, nor adhered to, is this section of the Borough of Columbia’s Codes and Ordinances
A. Any moving object used to attract attention to a commercial use. Flags and banners except as is permitted by § 220-47 and except for flags or banners meeting the requirements for a particular type of sign.
