The Brooklawn Borough Council amended several ordinances Monday night in an attempt to beautify the borough.
Under the amended laws, auto-parts dealers will be required to clean up their lots, tractor-trailer parking in the borough will be limited to four hours, and any existing portable advertising signs and new billboards will be prohibited.
Auto-parts lots littered with junk cars are an eyesore throughout Brooklawn, said Mayor Marion Conover, adding that slatted fencing or some other enclosure would be required to hide the lots from public view. At recent council meetings, several residents have complained about long-term truck parking at the Brooklawn Diner and other places. The amendments should take care of that, Conover said.
