West Penn wins first round in dispute of roadside stand
West Penn Township won the first round in its dispute with Steven C. Dunn, 59 Peach Drive, New Ringgold, in their dispute over zoning pemits to operate a commercial seasonal roadside stand at the intersection of state routes 309 and 443 in South Tamaqua.
After a brief hearing before Schuylkill County Judge Jacqueline Russell, Attorney Gretchen Sterns, solicitor for the township, informed the court a temporary agreement was reached with Dunn that he will not open for business the farmer's stand in April as he planned but will wait until either a settlement is reached with the township or by court action.
The township filed a petition for a temporary restraining order to prevent Dunn from reopening the farm stand until the charges of violating the township's zoning ordinance are resolved. The injunction suit has been placed on hold.
