Tougher regulations, higher fines again urged for illegal dumping

The Salisbury Township Environmental Advisory Council is renewing its plea for a tougher illegal-dumping ordinance and higher penalties for dumping in the township.

The main area of concern is Walking Purchase Park, the 500-acre tract administered jointly by Salisbury Township, the City of Allentown and Lehigh County.

Kreg Ulery, STEAC chair, said he was willing to present a proposal for a more strict illegal-dumping ordinance to the Salisbury Township Board of Commissioners. No timetable has been set for the presentation.

Summer playground program attendance up

Salisbury Township Recreation Director Genny Baillie provided a report on the summer playground program at the July 17 recreation advisory committee meeting.

Baillie said the attendance is good and up approximately 10 percent from last year.

Although there have been some challenges such as a tree which fell at Laubach Park on first base of the softball field just as Head Counselor Pat Jacoby was headed there for a soccer clinic, Baillie said the program has been going well. The movie night was also well attended.
