Boyertown's Quandary

Oley, PA

#1 Feb 14, 2010
The quandary presently beguiling elected officials, residents, and Building A Better Boyertown is all about M-O-N-E-Y and Mr. Charles Haddad, a member of Building A Better Boyertown’s board of directors, scheme to acquire more MONEY.

Mr. Haddad recently played a PRIMARY role in liquidating Boyertown of a Community Center that had been bequeathed to the Borough of Boyertown by The Sabold Estate (Mrs. Hafer of Boyertown Body was an adopted Sabold.) located at 314 West Philadelphia Avenue which provided a beginner home for most of Boyertown’s Organizations. In fact, Boyertown Borough conducted its zoning hearings there for many years. Most recently, it had been used by a church group, but it was left empty and unused primarily for lack of knowledge by Boyertown Borough Residents. Mr. Charles Haddad, an attorney, had a hand in establishing a board of directors for the purpose of selling the property that was just recently consummated by Berks County Court. It is presently in the process of being prepared for sale. It will yield MONEY resulting from the sale that should be held in ESCROW by Berks County Court; however, motives make that as a result uncertain.

At the same time, because of State Senator O’Pake, Building A Better Boyertown received a restoration grant in the amount of $30,000 to restore the crane located in the rail yard purchased with Boyertown Taxpayer Dollars. It has been suggested that the crane would be restored using volunteers at a minimum cost leaving a balance to whomever for whatever use.

At the same time, Mr. Haddad is laying claim to the rail yard in the name of Building A Better Boyertown.

It is high time that residents get involved with Boyertown’s Government before this MESS gets too far out of hand for the taxpaying residents of Boyertown Borough.

It is a GRAVE contradiction, that on one hand, a significant historical building (Community Center, 314 W. Philadelphia Avenue) that is still in EXCELLENT condition and served our community is being sold while a crane that is out of context and no longer connected to a railroad is being preserved. Of course, it is all about M-O-N-E-Y and NOT service to our community at all.

We have a Mayor who prefers to hold secret meetings for County Officials at her Twin Turrets B&B Inn while Boyertown Borough Council Members conduct budget meetings using secret documents denied for public scrutiny. We KNOW that a lack of TRANSPARENCY in government leads to corruption and scandal with a huge loss of money to the taxpayers, and Boyertown Borough Residents had better be prepared to pay for the results of what is happening in Boyertown NOW!
