rules set for township hearing

Drilling has been the main topic of concern among residents who have spoken at meetings about the township's proposed zoning ordinance and map.
On Tuesday, the supervisors established rules for an upcoming public hearing on the proposed documents, which is scheduled for 6 p.m. March 26 in Ligonier Valley High School.
The board unanimously approved rules presented by Solicitor Michael Korns, which limits public comment to 10 minutes per person.
As usual, those wishing to speak must sign up with their first and last name and address. A sign-up sheet will be available in the municipal building at least three days before the hearing and at the hearing.
A court reporter will be present, and members of the public who have additional comments beyond their 10-minute speaking period may submit comments in writing, which will become part of the record as exhibits.
Nonresidents of the township may speak. The list of speakers will alternate between residents and nonresidents. The sole subject of testimony must be comments and concerns regarding the zoning ordinance and the map. Audio and visual hook-ups will be available for those who wish to bring electronic devices for presentations.
