News in the Background in Douglass

Tweets from the Tuesday, Sept. 2, 2014 meeting of the Douglass (Mont.) Township Supervisors

    By the way, I downloaded the criminal complaint filed against Ziegler, so there are links in the story to specific incidents and you can read the whole document yourself, if you're into that sort of thing.
  2. This is the first story I wrote about that proposed ordinance:
  3. And this is the story that contained the public comments made at the last meeting about the proposal. None of the changes sought in those comments will be part of the law that is advertised.
  4. Stasik said he had "received some calls" about the proposal, noting that "people sometimes forget that we are both a rural township, and a cluster of developments."

    "I tried to explain to people that we're trying to straddle both sides of that fence," he said.

    "I think this ordinance is suitable for that purpose, and I trust that the zoning officers will use good judgement when enforcing it," he said.
