SANATOGA PA – New rules intended to govern “the use of playgrounds and tot lots” in Lower Pottsgrove Township’s parks and recreation areas will be considered for approval Monday night (Oct. 1, 2012) when the Board of Commissioners meets at 7 p.m. in the municipal building, 2199 Buchert Rd. The meeting is open to the public.
- This event has been added to The Post calendar.
Members of the township Parks and Recreation Board and Assistant Manager Alyson Elliott have in past weeks wrestled with concerns raised by parents of young children attempting to use new playground equipment at Gerald Richards Park on Buchert Road, directly across the street from the municipal building. Parents claimed they fear for their youngsters’ safety amid what they described as abusive play by older children also occupying the equipment.
The proposed rules are expected to spell out behavior that is and is not acceptable, and will be enforced by police.
Also on the board’s Monday agenda:
- Police Ofc. Robert Diesinger is scheduled to receive a department recognition award;
- Commissioners will consider authorizing payments related to its participation in the state’s general municipal pension fund; and
- Also will consider a request authorizing the township Civil Service Commission to set a date for a non-competitive exam to be administered to newly appointed police Chief Michael Foltz.
A copy of the board agenda has been available online from Lower Pottsgrove’s website since Friday (Sept. 28). It can be downloaded from The Post’s Resources Page, here.
