Defund City Avenue Special Services District


Money wasted - City Avenue Special Services District

     We taxpayers were sold a "bill of goods" when Joe Manko, Lita Cohen, and others raved about the City Avenue Special Services District and how it would, among other things, cut down crime and beautify our neighborhoods.
     Cut down crime?!  All one has to do is read the notices from the police and the township and one does not need to be brilliant to detect the panic in their voices.  Crime against homeowners and car owners is increasing.  Read the statistics.  And, even worse, the law enforcers are blaming the victims.  Warnings are issued to lock your doors and windows in your houses, and lock your doors and windows in your garages, and lock your doors and windows in your cars.  It has become the victims' fault.

     LM commissioners should decide, immediately, to defund the City Avenue Special Services District, and spend the money where it can be used to much better advantage - hire more police!!!

     I'm sure you have seen the City Avenue Special Services District bicycle riders in their red jackets and helmets on the streets.  On occasion, I have asked them what they do.  Their answers - we check in on the businesses (there is a sign in sheet in all the stores) and give people directions.  What a waste!!!

     Now, let's talk about beautification - hahahaha.  We had perfectly good street lights that worked.  Now we have different lights that don't work - at least some of them don't work.  And, to get those lights, Miller Brothers electric received the contract to dig up the streets, and put in the new lights.  In the process, they caused so much vibration to our house, that they caused a crack in our kitchen.  George Manos and big shots from Miller brothers were in our house and felt the vibrations and saw the damage and they did nothing.  The cost of repairing the damaged wall fell to us.  And, of course, we fixed it.  Even our insurance company said that in the state of Pennsylvania, our insurance does not cover us for damage caused by a contractor hired by a municipality.

     And, one more thing, the light in front of our house is out.  And has been out.  And has not been fixed yet.
