Glade to see the lights are going up
I would think that the posts were a bit premature. Give some things some time. Looks good...thanks to the workers. I guess some people would not have been happy unless it was done in October like Park City....then i'm sure they would have complained....."this town sucks...Xmas decorations up already....don't the Boro workers have better things to do?"......No win situation for the Boro.
i agree. sometimes you can't win for losing! there ARE actually some people in our boro that TRY their damndest to be nice, smile and say hi to all, even strangers...and who are trying to bring back our downtown. Quit your whining. Help. Volunteer. or BE QUIET. and thank you to ALL the volunteers and others that truly care!
The problem I have with this is the Boro is going to all the trouble to decorate the poles but than allows huge dumpsters on the same street. This is particullarly disturbing when you know they could have put these dumpsters in the backlot.Just trying to figure out what the Boro is trying to accomplish. Maybe their not sure.
They are temporary dumpsters. It show progress. they are not going to be there forever or even long term. I must come to the conclusion that you do not go further than Columbia, otherwise you would see dumpsters at construction projects everywhere. I'm a licensed PAcontractor and have utilized streets for dumpsters for projects all the time. It is a common construction practice. It's TEMPORARY, cost effective and efficient. If you were to step up and volunteer to help clean out that building and had to hand carry everything out the back, i am most sure you would be the FIRST person complaining that "this is stupid, the Boro should allow us to put a dumpster out front". Once again, some people all they do is complain.
