The next thing this 'Authority' will due is probably raise their rates to 'improve' service and make sure things like this don't happen in the future. At least they won't happen again until they want to raise rates again. Face it residents, this 'authority' is a one choice deal. They will do whatever is necessary to stick it to the consumer with higher rates so they can reward themselves for the crappy service they provide. Like Prez Obamaman says "never waste an emergency".

I was at the meeting last night and I do believe the Authority will make the changes necessary. What should stand out is the openess of the Water Authority versus the closed and corrupt process of the Borough Council and Manager. The Water Authority admitted the mistakes and openly discussed ways to improve the process and prevent this foul up from happening again. They spoke candidly about the changes that would cost more and the those that would not. They offered a tour of the facility to anyone interest.

The listened to the angry complaints about their work and communicated how they were going to address them.

The sad contrast is with the Borough Council and Manager is that only the night before the Council approved the appointment of a new councilmember who was foisted upon the town without any open discussion and without the knowledge of some of the council members themselves!!

The Water Authority is actually a well run and organized body that made a mistake. The Borough Council and Manager are to inept, corrupt and secretive. The individuals may be nice enough but the organization is a catastrophe that doesn't communicate, attacks anyone who questions it and NEVER takes responsibility for its actions.

Red Lion Borough and management secretive,corrupt
and inept?? You need to know that there is no other town as capable,well managed and uncorruptable as Red Lion.When something gets done in this town it's
done in the finest upstanding tradition known to mankind. No other town in the nation can come close to Red Lion. Don't believe this? Just ask anyone who has served in an official capacity in the boroughs history!! They will tell you in a instant how great they are. When in Red Lion you are standing on the streets of utopia. They have to be secretive cause they don't want such manageral skills to get out to the public. Ha! Ha! Ha!
