When I go to this topix site I want to read about Quakertown NOT Richland Township! Please take your comments and issues concerning Richland Township to the Richland Township Topix site.

Please post a link to the "Richland Township Topix site" you purport exists.

BTW, the overwhelming majority of properties in Richland Township have a "Quakertown" 18951 ZIP Code, and all properties in Richland Township are in the "Quakertown" Community School District.

Least time I checked, Quakertown is an island inside the borders of Richland Township.

The area is known as Quakertown. We all have Quakertown addresses, the school district is the Quakertown Community SD, which also includes Milford, Tville, Haycock, and Richlandtown.

There is no separate page.

BTW, last night the QCSD School Board approved the LERTA tax holiday for the property in RICHLAND where the cold storage warehouse is going in on Heller and E. Pumping Station Rds. They gave away $1.4 million in tax revenue that could have gone to fix the HS. So, EVERYONE who pays property taxes in QUAKERTOWN is affected by what happens in RICHLAND.

You people need to realize that the local governments and school district have the greatest impact on your lives, but hardly anyone comes out to vote for these people and the same idiots get reelected by their supporters over and over again.

I should note that there was one person on the SB who voted NO...Bob Smith of Milford.

Kudos to Bob for standing up for the taxpayers in QCSD!

The link to the Richland Township topix page is as follows: www.topix.com/city/richland-pa . It DOES exist. Fine if you post concerns and opinions on the QCSD on the Quakertown topix site, BUT all the posts concerning Richland Township politics and Supervisors and Police Dept. belong on the Richland Township site.

Quakertown is not an island. The definition of island is " a land mass surrounded entirely by water".

I think approving the tax break is a good idea. If you think about it they will be paying 1/2 property taxes for 10 years,(I know that it ramps up from 0 to 100%) and after that the full rate. Would you rather have that deal or watch a property sit vacant? They would have gone somewhere else. There is a good chance that some of the employees will settle here and pay eit taxes and contribute to the economy.

Yo Duke, it all sounds good on paper, but when the company folds or moves(like most do in this township within 10 years)we have another empty building. These township no nothings always say "in a few years we'll see the money", for example: solar panels, RASA park. I think that company wanted to build here because they know how uneducated the township officials are when it comes to business, and are taking advantage of their stupidity.

You believe the Bucks County officials and the elected QCSD board members are stupid? Why, with your vast knowledge base and apparent business acumen, haven't YOU run for office to replace them?

100% of nothing = No new taxes
Those who profess to know that the company would have located in Richland without the equivalent tax relief other communities also offered are delusional.

IF the company "folds and moves" in 10 years as the know-it-all "Taxpayer" predicts, the road improvements will remain, the QCSD will keep the $100,000 donation, the taxes paid by the 100 or more new employees for 10 years will remain in the local coffers, and the QCSD will keep more than a $1,300,0000 in increased revenue.

Too bad the fields didn't remain undeveloped?

Boy, you really are stupid. That's not the Richland TOWNSHIP Topix site, it's the Richland PA 17087 Topix site, 65 miles from here.

Click on your own link idiot and post your complaint there.

Duke, the land sale was a done deal THREE DAYS before the Richland BOS approved the LERTA. It was totally unnecessary to do so since they already paid for the land.

We are going to pay $71 million for the HS renovation and this lost revenue would have helped out EVERY property owner in QCSD.

Besides, this property does not fit the description of LERTA property since the fields have been used for farming.

Since the land was purchased on 10/11/13 for $2.9 million, a full 3 days BEFORE Orloff, Staats, and Arnold approved the LERTA, they would be building here regardless.

Richland, QCSD (sans Smith), and Bucks County just screwed us out of an additional $1.4 million in tax revenue when we are looking at $71 million to renovate the HS.

$100,000 was just for show.

How much did they pay Orloff and Stepanoff?

That link is a thread on the Quakertown Forum.

Richland Township, Bucks County doesn't have it's own page!
