Northampton Borough Council revisited the apartment rental ordinance at the July 5 meeting and voted to advertise the proposed ordinance and then hold a public hearing. Councilman Ed Pany cast the sole no vote.
The ordinance was adopted by council May 17 by a narrow margin, then vetoed by Mayor Thomas Reenock June 7.
A few major changes were made to the document to allow for another vote on the bill at the council meeting in August or September.

It appears as a minor entry on the project manager’s Gantt chart — “deliver beams.” However, it could be a fascinating experience.
Trumbull Corporation is the lead contractor for the Coplay-Northampton Bridge project. The beams to support the roadway for the new bridge are 121 feet long.
Allen Township officials asked the drivers to make the move at night to reduce traffic congestion.
The lead driver made a logical argument that this is going to be a tough task in the daylight, let alone at night when the beams are lit up and the trucks are flanked by a police escort.

John Dorn, of Debbie Road, led a group of unhappy residents in the Drexel Heights area off Weaversville Road at the Allen Township Board of Supervisors meeting June 26.
The complaints included the placement of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation detour signs, unauthorized truck traffic and noise. Chairman Larry Oberly responded to the detour signs.
“PennDOT has a code to follow in placing the signs, and we have little to do with it,” he said.
A revised draft of the controversial rental property ordinance is likely to be in front of Northampton Borough Council members at its July 5 meeting.
The original proposal was approved May 17 by a 4-3 vote of council.
Northampton Borough Mayor Thomas Reenock vetoed the measure June 7.
Elizabeth Gehring, a lively centenarian, celebrated her milestone event with 200 of her friends at Fellowship Community, Whitehall, June 12.
Elizabeth first came to everyone’s attention when her Wolf School fifth-grade class, now in their 70s, sought her out. They have semi-annual meetings to relive old adventures from their days at the former Bath school.
