the above was added to the Richland Township website. What does this mean for the residents of Richlandtown?

It means nothing to the taxpayers but lots to the pockets of the RTBOS.

Five days after the storm they declare a disaster emergency which opens the path for FEMA aide.. There were municipalities declaring a disaster emergency days before the storm hit. But not the Richland Supervisors. THEY DID NOTHING!

Absolutely! Did they have any emergency shelters set up? This township has many low lying areas that flood and the majority of the township lost power on Sunday.

I still see areas east of Quakertown that have no power. The light at Paletown Rd and 313 was still out as of this morning.

I thought this was a joke - if true, better late than never, I guess ....

Maybe Richland can apply for some FEMA money to install batteries on their traffic lights? Just a thought here.

Tim Arnold went on Facebook to cancel Halloween. That's something.

We live in the "Great Swamp", no excuse for not being prepared.
Maybe none of our elected officials were ever boyscouts... be prepared.

Evidently regulating the distribution of Snicker bars into little plastic pumpkins on a front step is more important than managing traffic flow on Route 309 where any careless yahoo could crash into the side of a car trying to manage crossing/turning at an intersection with darkened signals, killing a kid in the process.

Get batteries/generators for the lights next time - you can afford it, Richland.

Priorities people, priorities ....

Good point. Are the supervisors even aware of the geography of Richind? Are they aware the Great Swamp flood plain encompasses a good percentage of southern Richland?

And just how did they declare that emergency to the residents. We had no phone, no TV. Some had wireless but there was very little done to alert the residents about shelters, were there any shelters, did they hand out any water or meals. It's about time that Richland starts thinking about the elderly population in the township. OR maybe it's the Romney plan, let them all die off. Just sayin'

I think that IS the Romney/Rich People plan - let all the poor, sick, and elderly die off and that will solve all the problems in America...

No, they obviously had no plan to deal with this. They are lazy, don't care, have no clue, or all of the above. This is an epic fail on their part.

I ask again: WHO is the Richland Township Emergency Management Coordinator? Does anyone know???

So, what DID he do during this emergency?

I think we all have a right to know.
