The Development Authority of the Borough of Taylor






The Development Authority of the Borough of Taylor

The successful operation of a borough is a complex task requiring the time and effort of many individuals—both elected and appointed. The Borough Code and other state enabling legislation allow councils to enlist the capabilities of citizens through the establishment of various advisory boards and commissions. Although a few of these bodies are mandatory, such as zoning hearing boards in communities that have adopted zoning ordinances, many others are permissive. The use of advisory boards and commissions not only allows councils to draw on the talents and abilities of citizens with particular expertise, but also provides a channel for citizens to become more directly involved in municipal government. The members of   Taylor Borough advisory bodies serve without compensation and contribute many valuable hours of service to the community.

The purpose of The Development Authority of the Borough of Taylor, is to own, lease, plan, develop, and administer land within the Borough of Taylor, including, inter alia, certain real estate encompassing 147 acres, more or less, as more fully described in the Deeds recorded in the Office of the Lackawanna County Recorder of Deeds in Deed Book 1425, at Page 1, et seq., dated January 25, 1993, and Record Book 514, at Page 342, et seq., dated September 24, 2001; more commonly known as the Taylor Colliery Property, also including lands held by the Borough of Taylor by Deed dated November 1, 2004 from the Redevelopment  Authority  of the County of Lackawanna as recorded to Instrument Number 200515744 on June 14, 2005, and such other projects of a similar nature as shall be approved by the Taylor Borough Council.
