Disease and sanitation ordinances passed by assembly
November 4, 2021
The Borough Assembly approved ordinances #2021-15 and #2021-17 during Monday's meeting in each of their third and final readings.
Ordinance #2021-15 would move a chapter of the old city code which centers on disease control into the borough code.
The ordinance limits the powers of the health officer, such as the power to compel vaccination, and makes it so the officer must act under and report to the assembly and the borough manager.
It was reviewed by the Petersburg Medical Center, the police department, the borough attorney, and other borough staff before being put before the assembly.
