[ARCHIVED] Improvement Code amendments explained

Public comments were invited at a January 27 Board of Supervisors hearing on a series of mostly technical revisions to Cranberry’s Public & Private Improvement Code that relate to its sewer infrastructure. In addition to changing some of the details about which types of piping and other materials developers would be required to install in new construction, its most significant provision would clarify the use of a single master meter on multi-tenant residential buildings. Although the Township has promoted master metering for years, the revisions would bring that policy into stronger code compliance. Some apartment complexes meter every apartment separately with each tenant given an individual account. That has led to administrative issues for the Township. As a result, only one water bill will now be sent to each multi-tenant structure – no matter how many living units it contains. However, the new code would not prohibit landlords from sub-metering their tenants individually and billing them accordingly.
