One building inspector still okay — A state senate bill to amend the Uniform Construction Code was not going to be an issue anymore, according to sewage and zoning officer Robert DiLorenzo. The bill would have required more than one building inspector per construction project, but it “ran out of time in the 2013-14 legislative session," DiLorenzo said.
Shocopee Road drainage problem — DiLorenzo said he will continue to monitor drainage problems on Shocopee Road near the Pinchot driveway. He investigated a resident's complaint after recent rains, but “the ground’s too dry and it absorbed all the water,” he reported.
Next meeting — The next meeting of the Milford Township supervisors will be 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 17, in the township administration building on Routes 6 and 209.

— For the first time since Milford Township was founded in 1832, there's an official way to document resident complaints.

Through a new protocol, township officials will forward complaints to the appropriate offices and fix problems in a timely way.

Chairman Don Quick said residents who speak at township meetings are logged in, and a record is made of their comments. Now there's a formal complaint form to pass on to the departments that can address them.

“If it's something that comes under the right-to-know laws, there are records,” added secretary Viola Canouse. “And we keep files, then we have so many days to answer it.”

Supervisor Gary Clark created the new form. “This is good for the people that only come up on the weekends, or whatever, in the township," he said. "When they file a complaint now, we can remember it and we'll have it written down."
