I don't know about you people, but I do know I didn't get a 14% pay increase this year or any other time in my life. This stupidity by the "Borough Authority" needs to be Rescinded and action should be taken by Boro Council to prevent this Dictatorship mentality from robbing the people of Lykens yet AGAIN.

Get up off your couches and get to this meeting.
They are robbing you. Only as an organized group of citizens can you stop them.

Well with the cost of constantly firing crooked and, or, perverted cops the funds to pay for their numerous lawsuits, out of court settlements, and dismissals must be made up somewhere...
Combined with the constant strange small town horror stories released to the media by the deranged former mayor and his delusional ilk the property values of homes and businesses in the declining boro should drop just as the water rates rise...
And the water remains undrinkable and the cop trials seemingly unsinkable..
The current Cop trial is in May...didn't the boro just pay forty thousand bucks to settle on his fascist unconstitutional mayor led home invasions? Maybe thats where the water money went...
Anyway a 20 percent increase in water and sewer will not only force folks to move out of the boro it will also prevent businesses from moving in. And many of the few small business left will simply close up shop....so its a slow strangulation..
Stagnation in the midst of stagflation...Welcome to Lykens...but I'd wager we get one more Officer Wade crime fiction story in the press as his trial looms...and maybe some more incompetent cop court settlements are lingering in Lykens also
