Plymouth council OKs $1.71M budget

It should be financially sound after last year's whopping tax increase. I have a few questions.........Why must residents pay for recycling bags @ 1.50 ea and then the boro gets funding from recycling on top of the bag sales to boot? When I first moved to Plymouth 2 years ago, I was told by other neighbors not to buy the recycle bags and to just throw away recyclable items in the regular trash collection. It seems to me that if the boro supplied bins to residents at no cost that there would be much more participation and therefore increased revenues from the recycling system eliminating the need for bag sales. And another thing. Is there no enforcement of parking meters in Plymouth? I walk down Main St. and not one vehicle was ticketed and the meters were all expired. Here again, is another source of income that can reduce our high taxes. How bout it Plymouth Boro council?  (Jan 26, 2012 | post #1)

Bell Tower on South Main Street horrendous...anyone else ...

I don't mind the bells being played on an hourly chime to let you know what time it is, but it is programmed to play these horrendously sounding songs at all times during the day and evening hours. Some songs last four to five minutes long. I especially despise the song it plays every morning at 8am. It's like an alarm clock sounding and you can't shut it off. If you are on the phone or listening to music, the sounds clash with one another and one can barely hear the other end of the phone conversation. Granted, if you don't live or work nearby, you won't be affected by the bells, but I do and it is driving me crazy. Anyone else nearby agree with me???  (Aug 7, 2008 | post #1)

Is George Bush the worst president in history?

Oh yeah! And who do you think was really behind 9/11? The proof is out there. This was Bush's Pearl Harbor....a reason to go to war with Iraq and Al Queda just to get the price of oil increased here in the U.S. .....and it worked!!  (May 4, 2008 | post #3786)
