|Bethlehem Township regulars watch everything|
They did vote on establishing no parking zones along three roads intersecting with Brodhead Road, where several commercial businesses and no residences exist. They also voted to send SGT Richard for some training.
But Commissioners have no control over courtesy of the floor, and several citizens weighed in with concerns. Green Pond Marsh proponent Jack Glagola argued for more transparency. Martin Comer referred to the proposed $250,000 restroom facilities for the Bulldogs as the "Taj Mahal of outhouses." Commissioners also regularly hear from Roy Roth, Barry Roth and Wayne Kresge, citizens who attend nearly every meeting and serve as an informal check on Commissioners
Commissioners also heard from one former Bethlehem resident who used to live in Jersey but recently returned to the Township. His wife works in NYC. He's upset at the volume of traffic along Bethman Road, where his home sits. "I woke up this morning to the sound of a tractor trailer at 6:30 am," he complained."What can we do to stop people from using Bethman Road as a cut through?" he asked.
Nothing, responded Hudak, noting that people do have a right to drive along public roads.
