Lower Macungie commissioners took the first steps to update the township's sewer ordinance at the May 17 board meeting.
The four commissioners in attendance unanimously voted to draft a plan that to which it will attach all comments from the public before it is sent to the state's Department of Environmental Protection for approval.
Commissioner Ryan Conrad was absent Thursday.
Several residents had concerns about the new plan as explained in a Morning Call story.
And several had lengthy concerns that could not be accommodated by the board's three-minutes-for-comment limit.
Consequently, written comments will be accepted by the township until 7 p.m. June 7, just before the board's next meeting.
