Well did you know they already have backroom plans to sell off the land at Owlcreek Reservoir. The dam project is just what they have been waiting for, dam repairs always goes over budget and the option will be presented to Tamaqua, either raise taxes or sell off a portion of Owlcreek and guess which one will happen. You don't think Knowles went and got his real estate license for nothing, he has his eye on some waterfront property for his new home. It was funny though to see Knowles and Ourgals former lapdog Gursky down getting their glamour shot for the timesnews. I guess now that Knowles took over Argals seat Gursky found himself a new lap to jump onto and another face to lick.

Keep us informed so the people can, at least, be aware of this are scammed. Under no circumstance would a tax increase be palatable. If Argall loves the dam, well, let him take out a personal loan for however many millions and donate it to the
Borough. In return, he gets an acre of waterfront property.
Sorry, I'm a working guy. I don't have time to visit the beautiful dam of Argall's boyhood, buy a boat or afford a nice piece of land. There is no reason why I should pay a cent for something I cannot enjoy.
