The planning commissioners took a vote on Thursday night.
The Peters Township Planning Commission voted to recommend the adoption of the revised crematory ordinance. Peters Council is now expected to vote on the measure at a public hearing on Monday, Jan. 21. Some of the revisions in the ordinance include: "Let me be clear, there are no facilities proposed in the township as we speak," Planning Director Ed Zuk said. The planning commission chairman read a letter at Thursday night's meeting from a former opponent of crematories in the township. The letter was in agreement with the revisions.

Township officials are reviewing public comments.
At their next meeting on Oct. 22, the Peters Township Council will not be reviewing the zoning ordinance amendment to regulate crematories as a conditional use in the light industrial zoning district. Currently, township officials are reviewing comments received with the intent to provide revisions to the proposed ordinance. They will then need to assess whether or not the revisions will require advertising and an additional public hearing. An official public notice will be made once the date for review by council has been set. A capacity crowd, mainly against the ordinance, attended the public hearing earlier this month.
