Council passes vegetation ordinance
WILLIAMSPORT - The Williamsport Town Council passed a new town ordinance Monday that imposes a height limit of 6 inches for weeds, grasses, brush and other nonornamental vegetation.
The requirement also will apply to the area between the property line and the curb line of any street.
The ordinance allows 24 hours from the time of notification for compliance before the town may cut the vegetation at the cost of the person notified or the property owner.
The ordinance is available for review in the town clerk's office, town attorney Edward L. Kuczynski said.
Sponsors sought for fireworks display
WILLIAMSPORT - Town officials are seeking major sponsors for this year's fireworks display and concert, councilman Jeff Cline said Monday.
The sponsorship amount is negotiable, Cline said.
"Give the right amount of money and we'll name the fireworks after you," he said.
