UPDATED – WHERE’S THE RESIDENTIAL BROADBAND INTERNET, MAW?

     Correction to this morning’s post as to why MAW didn’t go to a bank for the loan -because there’s not a legitimate bank in this country that would have given MAW a $1.5 million dollar loan. 
     Please see the comments under this post and there will be much more on MAW to come this week.
     This coming Thursday, August 27th, there will be a special city council meeting  beginning at 6:00 pm regarding the rezoning request by UPMC Pinnacle to go from Hospital Complex to Mixed Use. Please see the notice and agenda below and mark your calendars.

WHERE’S THE MONEY, MAW?

From the LNP Watchdog article by reporter Dan Nephin, “With settlement between city broadband provider MAW, PPL what’s next?” (click here).
 

Hopkins

     So, this is LNP’s way of stating that MAW is not making their monthly payments on the $1.5 million dollar loan the city gave MAW. Why didn’t MAW go to a bank for the loan? Because they knew they weren’t going to pay it back.

        And business administrator Patrick Hopkins said it wasn’t risky at all to loan them a million and a half dollars. So, what happened, Patrick? How many millions has this debacle cost the citizens of Lancaster?

Please check back later today.

    Patrick Hopkins once again has to eat his on budget wording. Fire this man and find someone who can actually do a budget.

    Holy shit! I just read that! It’s hard to believe the city could get in so deep with such an unprofessional, amateur, fly-by-night company. At some point early on, they should have cut their losses, but the cover-up of the city’s own incompetence appears to have tacked on millions more! How could they ever hire these guys for such a big job? Crazy!!!

    Here is a link to a primary source document. https://ecfsapi.fcc.gov/file/10508155951945/_Lancaster%20Motion%20for%20Crossclaim.pdf

    The communication between the city and Maw’s lawyers that starts on pdf page 33 is what is of huge interest.

    This “separate dispute” is enormous and covers millions more dollars than the initial $5 million. These almost year old documents are our only window we the public have into it. The fact that the city/Hopkins gets a free pass on this is unconscionable. LNP deserves to go out of business.
