Editor’s Note: This ordinance also superseded former Ch. 120, Street Naming and Numbering, adopted 4-1-2002 by Ord. No. 4-1-02.
The purpose of this chapter is to support the County of Bradford Enhanced 9-1-1/Emergency Communications System to assist fire, rescue, ambulance companies, law enforcement agencies, the United States Postal Service, and the public in the timely and efficient provision of services to residents and businesses of Bradford County. This chapter will rename and renumber certain streets to comply with said policy.
This chapter is established in conjunction with the County of Bradford in implementing and developing a "Master Street Address Guide" and coordinating, designating and naming of addresses pursuant to the street naming and address policy. Enforcement of the ordinance shall remain the responsibility of the Borough of South Waverly; however, the County of Bradford shall coordinate and assist the Borough of South Waverly in enforcement.[1]

The designation of street names and addresses by the Borough of South Waverly shall be submitted to the County of Bradford so as to coordinate such designations and to comply with the County of Bradford Street Naming and Addressing Policy. South Waverly Borough adopts the Bradford County Street Naming and Addressing Policy as part of this chapter subject to the amendment set forth in § 120-5.
