Hetzel Park Letter to the DelCo Daily Times

RP resident Mike Gale published a terrific letter to the editor in the Delco Times today. He corrects a mistake in the news article about council’s last meeting (still untelevised I guess?).  The letter explains very clearly the zoning ordinance flim-flam the council used to erect the illegal billboard in Hetzel…

Council Votes on Ordinances

The handout given during the meeting only said "Ordinances" and a VERY brief description of each.  There was nothing about voting for these ordinances.  Nor were…

Freedom of Speech REVOLKED by Socialist Council

Are we living in the USSR , circa 1970?  Our Council is now telling residents they can only speak for a certain length of time AND they are not allowed to ask questions.  Isn't that what Socialist countries tell their citizens?  What is so funny is that one of the Councilors is the same person who as a resident, a few years back, came to the council podium and DAMANDED answers about his section of the borough on a monthly basis:  Peyton Place;  I mean Kearney Place.  Yes, remember Jim Glenn…

CDCA Bond Downgrade

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has lowered its rating on the Central Delaware County Authority, which pipes waste water out of 10 townships and boroughs, two full notches, to A- from A+.

The $40,000.00 (Fountain) Question?

Just came back from the lake and looked at the $40,000.00 fountain that has been sitting in front of the fountain building.  Word has it that someone was "working" on it today.  What I noticed is now the lights have all been removed.  Also missing is the motor.  The same motor that Our Borough Engineer unequivocally stated was not burned out.  We were told that there were problems with the circuits tripping, but it did not necessarily mean the motor was the problem.  I believe he even said…
