— I had a major computer meltdown this afternoon. All is back to normal (I hope) and LIP News will be back tomorrow.
IT DOESN’T ADD UP!
LNP provides this nice graphic on the front page of their print edition this morning on the funding for the two new fire stations. The problem: It doesn’t add up!
The total cost is $11.5 million. They plan to borrow $9 million from ACNB bank. They received $500,000 from a state grant. So they are $2 million short!
The $4 million they show is a sham and pointless. That is how much the city asked for from the state but they only got the $500,000, so why is the $4 million even there?
And the city has to pay off Wacker Brewing for breaking the lease on the warehouse. How much will that cost the city?
We’ll see what these numbers look like a year from now.
Please check back later today.
