Chuck Torosian, who opened the Craft Beer Store in Springfield in March, had a few words for the possibility of six-packs being sold in gas stations.

"I'm not for it at all," he said. "Hopefully, the state doesn't just let licenses go. It's going to hurt everybody."

On Wednesday, the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board approved nine applications allowing businesses that also sell gas to sell up to 192 ounces of malt or brewed beverages.

Someone explain this borough to me

Three and a half years ago I moved to this town. I rented a house for a little over a year, and then purchased a house near the lake after that.  Thus began my nightmare stay in Ridley Park.Being a first-time homebuyer, I'm sure I made some mistakes. The house I purchased had been vacant for some time and the man who sold it (a realtor), flipped it.  He purchased the house in January 2014 and I bought it from him in July 2014. It apparently met whatever requirements the borough has for…See More

Changing Tactics for Use and Occupancy Certificates

Posted by Howard McCoy on April 15, 2016 at 6:00pm 4 Comments

Hearing that early 4,300 Realtors® delivered a definitive message to every member of the PA House that a ‘yes’ vote on House Bill 1437 by Rep. Jamie Santora (R-Delaware Co.) is what Pennsylvanian's wanted, the amendment passed 194-0 on Wednesday and has a third consideration after primary election day. 



HB 1437more clearly defines “unfit for habitation” to provide better guidance to local code enforcement officials who are conducting resale use and occupancy inspections. Many…

Dangerous Intersection

Does anyone have any information about the person who was hit by a car at the corner of Swarthmore & W/E Ridley?  Just happened a short time ago.

Electrical pole being held up by rope? Does PECO know?

Posted by Alison Froschle on March 25, 2016 at 2:25pm 2 Comments

The pole located on Ridley (E.Ridley) street across from the orange barriers on the bridge. 

I don't understand how our elected officials can ignore this issue for years.  Has it been three years now?   It can be seen from the windows of borough Hall.  If this was in front of my house I would call PECO and have it fixed.  This is at the corner where children cross to go to school and along the path to walk in and out of our town.  Can someone explain why an electrical pole is being…

What are the Orange dividers on the Hinkley / Ridley bridge for?

Posted by Alison Froschle on March 24, 2016 at 1:41pm 1 Comment

Does any one know ?  They have been on this bridge for a long time and obstructing the view of drivers.  They have now become a road hazard.
