Haycock Township residents, who appeared at the June 7 public board of supervisors meeting to complain fervently about extreme disruption of their Roudenbush Road neighborhood by noisy dirt bikes, have been assured of follow-up on the matter by both their township and the state police.
Cpl. Bryan Billger, who was on hand for a status report on the new speed limit signs on Old Bethlehem Road that his unit helped implement, noted detailed complaints from four residents, including their unsuccessful attempts to get relief from the teenage riders and their parents. The state police presence in the matter is related to regulations governing the use of such vehicles on public roads.
Meanwhile, Supervisor Chair Kathy Babb directed the township solicitor to send a “courtesy letter” to offending parties, noting that the township has a noise control ordinance, and is prepared to move forward to enforce it if necessary.
Residents were urged to continue to monitor the matter, and also provide supporting data, as was discussed with the officials.
