In-person meetings return to Birmingham

It was a short meeting with nothing controversial, but Birmingham Township supervisors did agree that in-person meetings will resume in the township effective Tuesday, June 8. The township office will also be open for in-person business.

Supervisors’ Chairman Scott Boorse said masks will still be required for those who are not vaccinated and that social distancing will be maintained even in the meeting room. No chair will be right next to another, he said.

Other business included the supervisors taking no stand for or against four Zoning Hearing Board applications. The Zoning Board will decide on its own whether to grant variances for a deck at 1328 Crest Drive, for a porch, patio, deck, and shed at 1009 Radley Drive, for home renovations at 1007 Lakeview Drive, and for a swimming pool at 1135 Dorset Drive.

Supervisors also issued a Certificate of Appropriateness for a storage shed and driveway extension for 1045 Squire Cheyney Drive and authorized a pay raise for police officers Michael McCardle and Scott Luddy, who have finished their training and will go out on solo patrols. Their pay increases from $21.50 per hour to $23 per hour.
