City fights satellite dish blight with 30-day removal order

EASTON, Pa. — A Pennsylvania city is taking up a fight against satellite TV dish blight.

Easton's City Council passed a resolution requiring the removal of TV dishes 30 days after the service is disconnected.

The Express-Times of Easton reports that Councilman David O'Connell sponsored Wednesday night's measure because the leftover dishes are unsightly and could create a safety problem.

Chief Code Administrator Stephen Nowroski tells The Associated Press that penalties allow for a ticket of $25 for the first offense. That goes to $35 if not paid within 10 days. After 20 days, a citation can be filed in court.

Nowroski says it won't be hard to enforce because it can be flagged every time they do a rental inspection or inspect a house or building up for sale.
