Pennsylvania City Targets Old Satellite Dishes

Easton eyes dish blight with 30-day removal order

Earns Dish Network

A Pennsylvania city is trying to fight dish blight.

Easton's City Council passed an resolution requiring the removal of satellite 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 don't look good and could create a safety problem.

O'Connell says renters leave them behind when they go and new tenants don't remove them. O'Connell says he thinks it'll be hard to enforce, but he'll talk to the city's chief code administrator for ways to enforce it.
