A reader sent us this recent photo (and the next one) of a retention basin just off Cloverton Drive, which is not draining properly.
The problem is similar to that of other residents in that area, which Columbia Spy reported on HERE.
The borough needs to step up and own this and fix the problem for these taxpaying citizens.
Another reader sent us this photo of Concord Avenue. Wow!
The same reader also sent us this photo of the Old Town Hall at Third & Locust.
