Nothing really exciting this week, I am still researching my next, and hopefully more interesting, newsletter.

However, just to keep you going, it seems that Mr Karl Brachwitz of 1286 Hollow Rd. has got some building works on the go.  
  You may remember,a couple of months ago I showed you a photo of a mini excavator in his front yard.  The owner questioned it's whereabouts, and the back hoe had disappeared before Chief Swininger arrived to investigate.  Anyway here are his building works under way. Nothing wrong with that, good luck to him.

But isn't he supposed to display a building permit, exposed to public view, as legally required, when he is making building works?  As a member of the zoning hearing board he must know this. But no one that I am in contact with has seen a building permit there, which makes me wonder, does he actually have one? 

Of course it may be that because he is a close associate of Ken Miller that he doesn't need one.....................

I was interested to see on the 2011 budget that legal costs had been slashed from $130,000 to $80,000 which is obviously better.  Now the legal costs per head in West Vincent Township are only around 5 times as much per head as those of all neighboring townships, based on last year's figures and the 2001 census.

Please go along to the township meetings whenever you can, so that you can hear what is actually going on for yourself.  You don't have to say anything.  Just listen, and come to your own conclusions.  Well you have to find out when it is first!   It was not mentioned at the 11/22 meeting, and it is not mentioned on the township website but the following notice was published in the Mercury which most people don't see.  The limited dissemination of information of these new timings makes me wonder if there might not be something especially interesting on the agenda on that day...........Why not go along and find out for yourself........
