MORE MONEY, MAW!
MAW and LanCity Connect were mentioned several times during last night’s city council committee meeting (click here to watch).
One was during a review of the city’s 2017 audit talking about expenses and an increase of $400,000 in the general fund for LanCity Connect. MAW was mentioned again when Patrick Hopkins was talking about expenses for the Mayor’s office and a transfer and said there were $83,000 in legal expenses for MAW.
Finally, with about 5:52 to go in the meeting city councilman Pete Soto and Mayor Sorace had this brief exchange:
Soto – How soon will we get an update on Lancaster Connect?
Sorace – LanCity Connect…um…There’s really no update at this point. There’s a little bit of a stalemate because PP&L and MAW… PP&L is waiting on MAW for certain things and so PP&L is not going to move forward with any approvals for pole attachments or any new work until those requirements are met. So… we’re waiting.
Soto – How far behind schedule are we at this point on that? A year? A year-and-a half?
Sorace – Significantly.
Soto – Thank you, mayor.
