Maybe not everything you read was true.
Plus Richards likes to get his nose into the shit and stir it good. I personally think its a conflict of interest to be on Borough Council and the water & sewer authority. If I remember correctly that was what he stated before he was put on council. But there he is with his nose in both groups....Hum, how does tha work.

Not only did CW Test back out of the project because of the economy, they are in bankruptcy. This is why townships, boroughs, and "authorities" are worthless. They have to hire someone part time to run the facility? If that's the case, one full time person could be hired to run several facilities in various jurisdictions. Another reason why we pay so much more with the duplication of services.

Incompetent East Berlin officials expected a developer to pay an outrageous amount of the cost of the facility. They put all their eggs in one basket and lost their ass...

LMAO so when dose the state step in and take over, Seems to me there's a big tax cut just by closeing these little pin heads down, Since no one knows how to run a boro or TWP anymore, there are no STANDARDS or TRAINING required to hold an office, Just CLOSE them down. Set standards and training requirment and open a county goverment mergeing all the publice services. Think of the cost saveings in 1 police chief instead of what 7 or 8 , break down of office personal from what 50 to what 5 and roads crews would be about the same . Each town , village, and township dosen't need the own Police dept , road crew, and office personal we no longer are in the 20's , It's not an all day trip to Gettysburg like it was back in the horse n buggie days

You obviously don't understand PA local government. Tax dollars CANNOT be used to pay for sewer treatment plants (or it's operations). Paid for by user fees. So it's not a waste of your tax dollars, that is if you pay taxes to East Berlin.
