Question why should the people outside the burough pay for the capital improvements is town, like Lumber Street. The bond monies was used for alot of improvements other than water and sewer upgrades.Maybe the bourough can get our employers to give us a forty percent raise, now that would br great. Americans can't dig any deeper,looking pretty grim.

Littlestown isn't exactly a thriving metropolis - maybe what they should spend their money on is a grant writer to get some federal assistance instead of a town manager.

Anyone want to buy a house? It's in the boro of this great, little town. You can sit on the front porch and watch the four boro trucks drive up and down the street with nothing to do but waste gas. I think the other day, they drove by this house six times and it's not Lumber St.!

News flash!! The people in Bonneauville pay more than that now. It's now a minimum of $75.00 per month in our metropolis..........900 bucks a year. Bonneauville is definitely not thriving either. Their water/sewer has gone up $47.00 per month over the past 20 years. It's obvious these small boroughs use the water/sewer monies for other things besides water/sewer. No regulation by the PUC so they can do what ever they please and that's a fact.

We have a grant writer who has secured us some money. There's not much to go around! In days gone by the government underwrote these projects they required usually by 75 - 80%. Now they require it but have nothing to give.
when will it stop

Let go of the sewer and water guy that does nothing all day because he isn't certified to even be at the treatment plant. That would save $. He should have been let go along time ago. The only reason Littlestown is talking about hiring a CERTIFIED person for the sewer department is because they are using a council person's certification from another borough to cover their rear ends. I would demote Mr. Topper to the borough's janitor cause that's all he's good for. I'm sure he would delegate that job as well.

Give Topper a break. He did a great job in his former position and I'm sure he didn't want the added duties and responsibilities he was thrown.

-"the real deal" - and to think people questioned us when we left the burro and moved to WV where the property taxes are super low and we don't have a water and sewer bill.

By all means, stay in L'town and keep subsidizing those guvment workers and others on the dole.

And the water is not even fit to drink. All the crap that is in it causes cancer.
