Township supervisors heard new complaints Thursday night on an old topic: stray bullets hitting homes and other structures and even swimming pools in the township.

Gail Weber showed the supervisors photos she took of two bullet holes in her home, which is about a half mile from a gun club.

“I don’t know what the answer is,” Weber told the board. One bullet hole is above her living room window, she said. The other landed in the siding.


Weber said there are at least six bullets that have struck nearby structures. One bullet was found in a pool, she said.

Weber is not the only township resident who has complained about the gunfire.

Supervisor Jane Mellert has said she received complains about bullet holes in properties on Mill Road, Miller Road and Bangor Road.
