Sadsbury requests removal of objects in township road right-of-ways
Written by Roseanne Staab

Sadsbury Township supervisors held their October public meeting, with Supervisors Kevin VanHonk, Lyle Hoovler and Bonnie Smith in attendance. Secretary Rose Mumau took the minutes.

The September meeting minutes were not prepared, therefore they were not reviewed.

There was no Public Comment.

Road Master Mark Sobieski gave the Road Report, informing the Board that citizens are leaving objects on the roadsides in front of their residences. Items such as portable basketball hoops, flower pots, rocks, rail road ties, marker sticks and steel rebar are being positioned within the township right-of-way, and could be safety hazards.

Sobieski stated that any items placed or left in the township right-of-way must be removed immediately. Snow plows can grab and hook items such as basketball hoops and steel rebar, and these can then be dragged down the street.

The Board expressed concern at this news, and consulted Solicitor R. Charles Thomas, who was present at the meeting. They wanted to know about liability issues and who would be responsible if someone got hurt, due to citizens leaving objects out near the street. They also wanted to know if they have the authority to remove any or all items positioned within the township right-of-way.
