TUK TUK REDUX!
Why were they at city council? It wasn’t clear but what was clear was that Council President James Reichenbach is an idiot who needs to have his head examined. He opened his mouth about a public/private partnership and said the city is good at them. No, they aren’t, Mr. Reichenbach. Remember the over $5 million you threw away on MAW and LanCity Connect for absolutely nothing?
DON’T MESS WITH MY DORMERS!
A discussion about the dormers on 204 E. King Street (the property on the left in the above google image) took over half-an-hour at last night’s city council committee meeting (click here for the video of the meeting). Apparently the Historical Commission does not like the product the owner wants to use to fix the dormers. The owner brought paperwork and handouts and implored the council to let her use the product she stated would last 30 years. Council did not vote on it last night.
It was amazing. And all I could think about was how the Historical Commission and city council quickly voted for the approval of tearing down three buildings on East King Street very close to this house so LNP could build their Marriott Hotel expansion and yet they are worried to death about this woman’s dormers!
COMMUNITY YOU SERVE!
A comment on Lancaster Online’s Facebook page under the article linked to immediately below.
*** And what if the police officers/detectives questioning the victims and witnesses more closely resembled those citizens? What if the police officers/detectives lived in those neighborhoods and understood the circumstances and the fear?
Instead, the Lancaster Police Department has been hiring young white men who don’t live in the city over and over again! When will it end? When will the force reflect the citizens they are supposed to protect and serve?
** Apparently this is what was said in a press conference no one could hear (click here).
* LNP has no sound!
