COLUMBUS TOWNSHIP — Columbus Township Supervisors voted Tuesday not to adopt a blighted property ordinance that has been tabled since January.

For the past six months, the three-member board has been contemplating the idea of adopting the countywide ordinance — that would join them with other Warren County townships and boroughs — in an effort to target abandoned or dilapidated properties.

However, after listening to advice from their solicitor and reviewing the fine print, David Goodwill, Dan Wood and Paul Pirozzola unanimously agreed the Blighted Property Review Committee Intergovernmental Cooperation Agreement would not be a good fit for Columbus.
