  1. Charges were filed against Sam and Cynthia Bigler, for failure to comply regarding violations, but those charges were since "withdrawn". What happened? Why were charges dropped?

    1. We were informed that the submitted forms contained too many errors and were therefore "thrown out."

    2. To clarify: A borough official allegedly gave incorrect information when submitting the paperwork.

    3. W as that official elected or hired? Either way they need to be named so people know who to hold accountable. Does borough council have the ability to fire the codes people? If so I would be tempted to run. This is crap that there are so many inept people in these positions and the whole town suffers for it.

  2. Charge was withdrawn on August 5, 2015 and case is listed as closed. Are they now not being held accountable, and if not why?

    1. We wonder if he is "accidentally on-purpose" being let off the hook again.

    2. What you must do is grow a set of balls and a backbone and show up at a council meeting and say exactly what you just said on here. Second Monday (7pm) and fourth Monday (6pm) of every month.

  4. If a simple charge for failure to comply cannot stick then how will anything else ever get resolved?

    1. This continued foot-dragging gives the impression that Bigler is being protected.

  9. Columbia always has been and always will be run by the "good old boys" system. The only way to change things is to get them ALL out of office. That means you need to take an interest in and take pride in the town in which you live. Sitting around complaining accomplishes nothing! You need to get up and act.

    1. Do you act? Are you running for office? Do you live in Columbia? Do you REALLY, REALLY CARE???

    2. True so true! Use that energy that you are expelling and sitting around doing nothing but notching and weining.
      If you can make a difference then step up and have at it! No excuses please...

  10. If one steps up and requests and/or accepts a position, volunteer or paid, that person has to perform the required duties. Because someone takes a few minutes to write a comment does not mean that they are "sitting around doing nothing". Their energy may be going toward a different endeavor to help in this borough. It's disheartening to vote and vote with the same results, same people always in charge.
