Posted by Howard McCoy on April 15, 2016 at 6:00pm 2 Comments

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…

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…
