QUAKERTOWN, Pa. -

During a work session Monday night, Quakertown Borough Council briefly reviewed the legal wording of a park ordinance that notes they cannot prohibit firearms in parks that will coincide with Pennsylvania law.

The changes, which are scheduled to go to vote at their borough council’s regular April 3rd meeting, would not actually allow firearms in the park, according borough Manager Scott McElree, it’s that firearms would not prohibited, so long as they are not concealed. Weapons, however, would still be prohibited on borough lands.

Monday night’s discussion on the subject originated from the Parks & Recreation Committee Chairman Daniel Williams. Other reports included updates from the Planning & Zoning, Revenue and Finance and Public Utilities Committees.
