By unanimous votes this week, the state House passed two bills sponsored by Rep. Dan Moul (R-Adams) that would make technical changes and clarify provisions in the Borough Code to better assist local governments, and would help distressed municipalities better manage their financial condition, according to a release from Moul’s office.

Moul, chairman of the House Local Government Committee, sponsored House Bill 2122, which would bring Borough Code provisions for the accumulation, collection and disposal of municipal waste and recyclables, and contracts, rates and charges in line with the Third Class City Code and Second Class Township Code, making the law governing these local government services clear and consistent, according to the release.
