Red Hill Officials Update Park Rules
Written by Candace Perry, Correspondent

            The Red Hill borough staff gets many requests to use the community park for different purposes, but it hasn't been clear what is allowed and what isn't.

            The Red Hill Borough Council sorted through these rules at their meeting on Tuesday, June 28.

            Council Member Kevin Stephenson clearly defined park usage as "active recreation vs. passive recreation" and said that "active recreation is potentially being hit by something" such as playing baseball.

            The council determined that the section of the park known as Godshall Park would be the area where people could play ball and other active sports. No horseshoe playing or golf will be allowed in any section of the park.

            The parks committee will be working on an amendment to the ordinance on park rules.

            In other news, council president Doris Decker opened the bid for the rental of the section of the municipal garage not being used by the borough. The bid, from Ritz Sign, proposed a fee of $900 a month or $10,800 per year. The garage would be used for parking vehicles.

            The company further asked that they be allowed to install an overhead door to accommodate larger vehicles and security cameras, at their expense.

            The council authorized acceptance of the bid.

            Decker also reported on progress made with illegal water discharges on properties throughout the borough and said that residents with these discharges had been notified, and most had fixed their problems right away.  These issues occur when residents have water discharging at the edges of their property, rather than six feet before the edge, as the ordinance states.
