On Tuesday May 21, 2019 North Whitehall voters approved the referendum ballot question by a 2-1 margin. The referendum question asked are you willing to assess a .1 mill property tax increase to be used exclusively for open space and farm land preservation? The yes vote means that beginning in January 2020, Township property taxes will rise to .6 of a mill. .5 of a mill will continue to fund the operation of the Township and .1 mill will be set aside to be used for open space. For the average property assessed at $250,000. the .1 increase is $25.00. The Farm Preservation Committee will be working with local property owners and Farmers to encourage them to enroll in the program and get their property on the list for preservation. If anyone is interested in preserving their property, they may contact Jeff Bartlett for more information.

The Pa State Construction Code requires a building permit for any above-ground swimming pool 24 inches or higher. The pool permit process also includes the installation of a 48 inch high fence to secure the pool. A pool that is 48 inches or higher and has a locking ladder may not be required to install a fence. That decision is up to the building inspector. All in-ground pools require pool permits, fences and in some cases alarms on house doors that allow direct access to the pool.
There is no such thing as a temporary pool. If it is installed even for a short period time and is 24 inches or over, it requires a permit. Pool retailers are giving you false information if they tell you no permit is required. This includes pools with blow up or water filled side walls.
No pool, even with a proper permit, is allowed to be placed in the front yard of a home. Failure to immediately remove an illegal pool may result in civil penalties including up to $1,000. fine per day. If you need assistance regarding a pool permit, please contact the Permit Office.
