Carroll Township Board of Supervisors held its monthly meeting on June 4, which had been rescheduled due to a scheduling conflict with elections. The supervisors discussed concerns about residents not abiding by township burning ordinances and the effects on other residents.

Burn piles are being left to smolder throughout the night in some cases, and residents’ homes are being filled with the smell of smoke.

Residents are reminded that burning days in Carroll Township are Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 7:00 am to 2:00 pm. The fires must be extinguished by 2:00 pm and are not permitted to smolder.

Also at the meeting, the board passed two ordinances – one for bees and chickens and one for logging.

The Bees and Chickens Ordinance requires residents to obtain a permit to own chickens within the township and includes many rules that protect other residents. The permit for housing bees on property has more complex stipulations to protect neighboring residents. Specific information on the ordnance can be obtained from the township.

The Logging Ordinance also passed at the meeting intends to protect the property of residents who contract with logging companies to cut and remove trees from their property. When the logging companies seek to harvest trees, which currently requires them to obtain a permit from the township, they must properly clear and clean the area of debris upon completion of the work.
