NEPA Landlord Tenant Homeowner Association Blog



Commentary on issues regarding property rights, this blog relays information on events past, present, and into the future in Northeast PA (USA). While facts are presented, an opinion may be thrown in the mix to make things more interesting. Corrections are welcomed by using the comments -  as long as we see documents to back it up.

As far as the comment part of this blog, we appreciated hearing from people literally all over the world! We generally don't publish the comments though because this is a local blog. Even so, comments published are rare unless they add to the story or a correction is needed and information sent was confirmed. Glad you're enjoying it though! We STILL have some freedoms here and intend to exercise them at will!

Duryea elected officials decided to recommend that the Borough Council table the proposed ordinances

It was an 11th hour get together with Duryea's Mayor Keith Moss, Councilman Michael McGlynn, and Code Enforcement Officer Jeff Pisanchyn today (Dec 9). After researching the proposed ordinace, we needed to have the urgent meeting to bring out discrepancies seen as a problem not only for landlords, but more so for residents and the borough as well. The great thing about the elected officials in Duryea, is that they are willing to meet and discuss ordinaces before they are passed rather than create all the drama we see in other towns after the fact. Not everyone who writes ordinances understand the role of the PA UCC and have a tendency to blend other ordinances in with the state statute. We applaud the mayor, councilman, and code enforcement officer for taking the initiative to recommend that the Borough Council table the proposed ordinances, pending review by the Borough Solicitor.

Duryea will have a program for the business of renting and safety really is a concern here. The process doesn't have to be oppressive and cost prohibitive though as well as a challenge to individual rights, which the Commonwealth of Pa recommends caution. There is a healthy balance that can be achieved; still there will be unhappy people who want no regulations and in that case, the farther from civilization you get...the closer you'll be in achieving that goal.
