SECTION 1. Section 1(a) of Bill No. 050670 (approved November 10, 2005) is hereby deleted and replaced with the following:

In certain areas, such existing boundaries will be supplemented by a clear nylon cord to connect such existing features and create a continuous boundary, and in some areas, lechis may be mounted on utility poles, subject to the owner's consent, to create the proper form of boundary line; a maximum of ten new poles and a few extensions of existing fence posts may also be erected. The approximate territory bounded by the Eruv Boundaries is the area between Washington Avenue on the south, Poplar Street on the north, the Schuylkill River on the west, and Interstate 95 on the east.
