Owners of McGinness property warn of prosecution for trespassers

[Peggy A. Knoll read the following letter at the November 12, 2019 Columbia Borough Council meeting. It is published here with her permission.]

Please note that the date of this publication, the Trustees and Executors of the George and Dorothy McGinness estate Peggy A. Knoll and James G. McGinness are registering a formal document as required under Pennsylvania code Title 18, Section 3503 code which details the requirements to name and prosecute violators to private property. A preliminary document was presented at the Borough Council meeting on November 12, 2019, read openly to the attending public and entered into record. The document was notarized and delivered to the Borough Council as well as the Police Chief of the Columbia Borough, on November 15, 2019. This will also be posted externally to comply with all requirements allowing prosecution. Our legal representatives are involved as well. Violators and those who trespass on our property will be prosecuted to the fullest extent possible by law. The property has several types of 24 hour security with recording infra-red and sound/facial recognition to be available and presented for prosecution if necessary. This document includes all properties listed to the title of the McGinness Estate.

The exceptions to this declaration will be only those who are given permission by one of the two Executors of the Estate in writing, anyone visiting the property in the presence with one of these two people, and our business associates as established by the Executors. This does NOT apply to Uniformed Columbia Borough Police Officers responding to any issue on the property or requested entrance by the owners of the property. Also Uniformed Pennsylvania State Police Officers and Uniformed Fire personnel acting in any capacity responding to an emergency, are not included.

This November day of 2019
