Have a Complaint?
Have a Complaint? We want to hear from you!
In addition to the Borough’s proactive Zoning and Code Enforcement approach, sometimes we do not see or catch everything that occurs in town. Bath residents are the best front line eyes and ears to what goes on in the community. If you see questionable zoning or code practices, please let us know about it. We do request that any and all complaints be submitted to the Borough in writing, on our Municipal Complaint Form. Your information is kept confidential but is required for us to perform proper investigations. The Municipal Complaint Form is not subject to the Right-to-Know law and is not released to the public.
Follow the link below for a copy of our Municipal Complaint Form. File your complaint with our Borough Office and it will be recorded on our Complaint Tracking List. You may be notified for additional information at the request of the Zoning/Code Enforcement Official. Any matters that may transition into the Pennsylvania Crimes Code will be forwarded to the police for further investigation. The Borough Office has up to 30 days to review an originating complaint, so please have patience with the process.
Zoning & Code Enforcement Questions?
The Borough contracts for Zoning, Code, and Building Inspection services through CodeMaster, Inc. Mr. Shawn Leidy is the Borough’s designated Zoning & Code Enforcement Official. CodeMaster has other officials that can perform Uniform Construction Code (UCC) inspections through a Building Code Official (BCO), which is separate from Mr. Leidy’s duties and responsibilities. Mr. Leidy can answer general questions regarding Zoning and Code Enforcement through the link below. The Borough Manager may also answer common questions about Zoning or Code regulations.
Please keep in mind that the Borough does not engage in pre-approval of site or construction projects. Any information you receive regarding general Zoning and Code questions is unofficial until you actually apply for a permit application. The Zoning/Building permit once issued becomes a legally binding document. Under certain circumstances a UCC Permit may also be required in conjunction with the Zoning/Building permit.
Questions can be emailed to Mr. Shawn Leidy at: firstname.lastname@example.org
