A chart at the Coal Township Municipal Building is pictured in 2018 that showed the amount of taxpayer dollars that had been spent in a permit fee lawsuit with Northumberland County.

COAL TOWNSHIP — “Northumberland County Commissioners Sam Schiccatano, Joseph Klebon and Kym Best should be put in jail for raping the township and county taxpayers.”

That was the stern reaction of Craig Fetterman, president of the Coal Township Board of Commissioners, when asked to comment about Senior Judge Dudley N. Anderson’s ruling Monday to grant summary judgment to Northumberland County in its lawsuit against the township regarding building permit fees involving the county jail.

I would like to read the judges ruling. Does this now mean that coal Twp is not allowed to charge permit fees. I mean if they charge everyone the same fee and one party does not have to pay then the question I have is how does the township enforce anyone to pay the permit fees. Where do we go from this point.
