Of course, LNP is a monopoly and they have failed to report on the unbelievably expensive debacle of LanCity connect. They have not held anyone accountable for this $7 million plus disaster. And they went after the Manheim Township School Board viciously for months over executive sessions but they don’t even mention Lancaster city council.
Resign, LNP executive editor Tom Murse. Just resign! You are a disgrace to journalism.
* During last night’s city council meeting, city clerk Bernie Harris read a written comment from Amanda Alexander of Landis Drive. She wrote that Xfinity is their only internet option and it is not satisfactory for both she and her husband working from home and their son learning virtually. She also wrote that they are expensive especially during a pandemic and their customer service is terrible. She ended with this:
…Please for families like mine and everyone suffering from this natural monopoly, Xfinity in our area, allow other high speed internet providers into all of Lancaster. Give all of us citizens fiber optic options [rather] high speed cable options. Allow other internet service providers like Verizon Fios to place their fiber optics throughout the entirety of Lancaster and give us citizens true options for internet service providers or please finish LanCity wireless because as it stands, Xfinity is a monopoly and Lancaster citizens need more competition. Thank you.
AN EXECUTIVE SESSION
At 5:55 into the video of last night’s city council meeting, President Ismail Smith Wade-El states the following (click here):
I’m remembering now that I neglected to mention at the top of the meeting that at 5:30 council held, um, council held an executive session in which we were informed about ongoing litigation by our solicitor.
There was also a mention of LanCity Connect and the city wants to borrow/spend an additional $10.55 million for water projects. As usual, all seven council members said, “Aye.”
