Against its attorney's advice, the Hatboro Borough Council refused an exception of the borough's noise ordinance to prevent late night, early morning work on County Line Road as part of a seven-month-long water main replacement.

It is slated to begin on or about Nov. 5 and is expected to continue well into spring 2013. While the Hatboro community would not benefit from the project, Matticola came before the council Monday for a public hearing to see if the governing body would approve an exception to its noise ordinance…

Under the approved ordinance, billboard companies could erect signs up to 25 feet high on three roads in Horsham Township.
Should billboard companies look to advertise in Horsham Township, officials are ready to tell them where to go. Precisely, prospects would be directed to County Line Road, Easton Road, or Route 309. Sections of those roadways are the only places in the 17-square-mile township that billboards are permitted under an ordinance that the township council unanimously adopted Monday night. Township planner E. Van Rieker said the thought in establishing the ordinance was to “make sure Horsham is challenge-proof” in terms of litigious battles that ensue when municipalities do not have regulations in place to provide for billboards. Prior to Monday’s adoption, the township had provided for signs up to 200 square feet in its I-3 industrial district, …

By amending its ordinance to provide for the roadway signs, the council hopes to prevent legal challenges.
Rather than waiting for a court battle that could cost $200,000 to $300,000, the Hatboro Borough Council followed the advice of its attorney in adopting an ordinance to provide for billboards. The new regulation, which was adopted unanimously Monday night following a public hearing, amends the borough code to provide for signs up to 75 square feet in the borough’s heavy industrial and limited industrial zones along County Line or Warminster roads. Borough solicitor Christen Pionzio said billboard companies have sued municipalities that do not provide for billboard use in local codes. The “remedy” for not allowing billboards, she said, are billboards up to 672 square feet, or 14 feet high and 48 feet long, as she said is the case with an …
