Borough Considering Proposed
Ordinance to Eliminate Utility Deposits:
The Borough of Zelienople recently considered raising
the deposit amounts on the utility accounts because it is only $10 per
utility and has been since the late 1950ís. Circumstances require that
it be raised. There was an open meeting to discuss this issue and
how to also reduce the nonpayment of bills for renters that are less
than diligent on paying of their account bills. There was much
discussion and suggestions from the public at this meeting which was
certainly taken into account by the council and staff. This was what we
had wanted in calling for the meeting.
Two important things have
occurred since that meeting. The first is that staff is able to provide
account status information to property owners concerning their renters
and all that is needed is to request that information from staff. A
simple request for information form is needed for the properties that
you need to have the information on. Many property owners have taken
advantage of this information these last two months. Also, the
ordinance was reworked to try and better fit the circumstances for the
borough and for the property owner. The attached proposed ordinance
#829-13 is for your information. Please read it and give us your
comments in writing. It is expected that this ordinance will be
addressed by Council at their April 29, 2013 council meeting to give you
enough time to absorb the ordinance language and provide any input.
There will be a time allowed at that meeting for both verbal and written
public input. I encourage you to review the document and provide
constructive comments as soon as possible. Thank you for your
here to view the actual ordinance.
