what they’d like to see us en­force,” Deputy Clerk and Code En­force­ment Of­fi­cer Kyle Sny­der said in a phone in­ter­view Sept. 1. “We al­ready have a draft that’s go­ing to be in­tro­duced at the Septem­ber town meet­ing and then for vot­ing on in Oc­to­ber.”

Once the town gets the code en­force- ment pro­gram up and run­ning, Sny­der said other top­ics will be added as needed. In the mean­time, town res­i­dents are en­cour­aged to send an email, call the town of­fice or drop off a note in the mail­box at town hall, he said.

“It’s not re­ally a sur­vey,” said Sny­der, who was hired last Oc­to­ber after also serv­ing as a code en­force­ment of­fi­cer for the Town of Ber­wyn Heights. “We ac­tu­ally did a sur­vey back in De­cem­ber just to see what new or­di­nances the cit­i­zens or res­i­dents wanted us to look over like traf­fic and park­ing, com­mer­cial and res­i­den­tial clean lot, or prop­erty stan­dards, build­ing and con­struc­tion, rentals, stuff like that.”

Although the town hasn’t re­ceived a lot of in­put from res­i­dents, Sny­der said more feed­back is ex­pected once the or­di­nance draft is in­tro­duced this month.

“Right now, we’re just try­ing to see if any­one has any ideas and sub­mit them now. That way, we can kind of get some of the flood­wa­ters be­fore­hand and ad­dress any con­cerns peo­ple have be­fore we in- tro­duce the draft,” he said. “Once the draft is out there, res­i­dents can read it and see what ex­actly is go­ing to be go­ing on.”

The over­all goal, Sny­der said, is to make sure prop­erty stan­dards and codes are up­dated for the well be­ing of the town.

“We knew we were go­ing to be un­der­tak­ing large projects — up­dat­ing all of the codes over the next two years,” Sny­der said. “It’s ex­cit­ing. We’re mov­ing for­ward and mak­ing progress.”
