Thanks for stepping up and serving!
They can plan all they want. As long as taxes in this town are so much higher than the surrounding areas developers won't look at investing in this town. They also see there's no effort in changing that. Just wasteful spending of taxpayer dollars. Why aren't the leaders of this town including outsiders with the financial wherewithal & who have proven track records of moving towns in the right direction. Instead they use this useless EDC & connected people from within the town who are just looking at gaining personal wealth. That's why Lancaster City is moving in right direction they're involving developers who have deep pockets & the business sense to make the changes necessary to have a vibrant town.
Seeing that the borough just paid the Bigler's $51,000 for the Locust St. property, maybe the new members of the planning commission and council can give insight to what to do with it if it does not sell.I guess they still owe for Flagger Force and other liens if applicable.
I see the borough bought a property on Locust st. for 51 thousand!
The borough has no intention of selling bigler's building, they r going to give it to perfect setting. Yet again taxpayers getting screwed
Your claim is unsubstantiated. Please cite your source.
What message is this sending to landlords. How many blighted properties can the borough handle? Why does Sam Bigler get to wash his hands with no penalty? He made $300k on the Walnut Street demolition. Columbia Borough should have put a lein on that property.How much to demolish or renovate the Locust Street property? Unreal politics!
If that rumor is true,, then so be it.Perfect Settings has shown their passion for the Historic District. After years of enduring Sam Bigler and Columbia Boro's negligence it's the only right decision made in years.
^ I wonder who that could be. Hmm.
So the use of our tax money will be used for real estate in the respect of a private business? Give me a break! The Columbia Borough Codes Department was warned many times on the deterioration of this Bigler property. So donating this property is a "I am sorry we were not proactive on this landlord". Give me a break!As for the Historic District comment. Why is there storage units being built on Front Street? Not so historic to me.
Why do you need a break or two?Columbia elected officials and codes allowed Bigler to get away with neglect. THEY NEED TO BE SORRY AND ASHAMED!Pagans put up with it for years, they deserve the BREAKS. Im sure if they receive the dilapidated property something good will come of it.As far as Front Street storage units, is that area in Cle's Historic Distrct? I'm not in favor of the units or even how that project was approved. Give Perfect Settings a break, it will probably be cheaper on the taxpayers in the long run..
What does Bigler's have on the borough?Only took 2 years, which he fooled around and won. What is the next property he wants the borough to buy,the old garment factory apartments at 3rd and Union? If I remember correctly, the parking lot up the street on Union was never finished as to approval for his apartments.
ALL Bigler is is a slum Lord all he does is cost the town money he must go the sooner the better go find another town and cheat them out of money like you have done to Columbia
Who who can be? Complete your assumption.
