The announcement by township supervisors to have constructed a sewer line at the cost of $12.5 million poses more questions.
Who is going to pay for this? Sewer rates have gone from $44 a month to $46 at the present time.
Are we to expect an increase to as much as $100 monthly? And how will the sewer treatment plant handle the extra load, pun intended, as a result of the extra users?
A potential upgrade or larger plant at the taxpayer expense?
I am of the opinion that some wealthy developer has property to develop but needs the sewer service.
It wouldn't be the first time supervisors have sided with developers. The failed attempt to develop a housing project on South Carlisle Lane is a glaring example of catering to special interest at the expense of the taxpayers.
And what of the $446,000 windfall to be realized by the township?
One supervisor revealed some common sense in possibly paving roads, maybe even the roads declared by Supervisors Chairman Frank Meloy as being private.
Residents on so-called "private roads" pay taxes like everyone else, the same as those residents living on township roads.
There is a very bad odor eminating from the township building, and the only relief is a complete change of township supervisors.
And keep the fire companies and their leaders out of the political election system. The attempt by one fire official to buy a piece of industrial type equipment for his own use while claiming he bought it for the fire company, which is tax exempt, to avoid paying the sales tax.
I have the Attorney General's report on this incident, which received no action against the offender by the township.
Wake up, Logan residents.
