Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today.
The Morrisville zoning commission learned that lesson the hard way as it voted unanimously Monday night to terminate a cease-and-desist order that the borough imposed on Borden's Home Amusements two months ago.
The video arcade had been accused of violating numerous borough ordinances, including noise and security provisions.
"The board decided to sustain the appeal of Borden's (against the order) and that the borough was not wrong in attempting to enforce its zoning ordinances," said borough solicitor Ralf Gilbert. "Except because it had been six years since the enlargement of the premises, and the borough had not enforced it during that time, they were legally stopped from starting to enforce it now."
