September 3, 1985

Opinion concerning multiple questions. Does Chester County Council have absolute legislative authority over both of these special purpose districts? Will the Attorney General take the necessary action to preclear Act No. 1486, 1968 Acts and Joint Resolutions, with the United States Department of Justice? Whether one serving as either Town Clerk or as a member of the Town Council of the Town of Richburg may properly serve as a commissioner of the Chester Metropolitan (water) District? Can the commissioners of the Chester Metropolitan (water) District take control over a privately-owned water system without providing the resident users a vote in a referendum process? Can the commissioners of the Chester Sewer District take control over a privately-owned sewage system without giving the resident users an opportunity to vote in a referendum process?

Requested by: William C. Keels, Esquire, Chester County Attorney
