Legislative FYI - December 27, 2012
The following is in respect to PEC's mission to educate and inform our membership.
We, as horsemen, need to know about local laws (ordinances) that involve us. PEC has been made aware of two recent proposed ordinances that will affect horse owners who reside in the respective municipalities.
- The first is in the township of Whitpain in Montgomery County. It addresses manure on roads, etc. whitpaintownship.net/pages/resources_ordiances.php
- The second involves horse ownership and housing in the City of Philadelphia. phila.legistar.com PEC is offering these ordinances for information only and this in no way implies an opinion. The ordinances have not been passed by the local government bodies as of this date. If you reside in these communities and would like to have input, contact the respective authorities.
