EAC to handle shade tree appeals

Shade tree appeals in Salisbury Township will be handled by the township Environmental Advisory Council.

The change in procedure occurred after a resolution to amend an ordinance was approved by a 4-0 vote, with one commissioner absent, at the Oct. 10 township meeting.

The board of commissioners will no longer be the first township govenning body that will consider shade tree appeals.

Township commissioners have said the appeals hearing, testimony and vote is too time-consuming to take place at either of the two monthly township commissioners’ meetings.
