It was a quick 25-minute meeting for the Chadds Ford Board of Supervisors Wednesday night. The board awarded proclamations to two township Girl Scouts, Margaret Dempsey and Kaylei Schneider, who earned the Gold Award, the highest award in the Girl Scout ranks.

Supervisors also approved a Certificate of Appropriateness for a new roof at Hank’s Place, and they named John Houtman, of G. D. Houtman & Son, as the township’s alternate sewer enforcement officer.

Supervisor Noelle Barbone announced that the July workshop would be on Monday, July 26. She also said that the medical marijuana ordinance is going back to the Planning Commission for another review.

The commission had previously recommended approval by the board, but solicitor Mike Maddren tweaked the draft combining potential recreational marijuana legalization by the state with the already legal medical cannabis.
