A 'Storm'-Y Authority Meeting

Like the council meeting Monday night, Tuesday's Pottstown Borough Authority meeting was swift and packed with action.....

OK, not so much with the action. More with the: "this-is-how-you-run-a-water-and-sewer-system-" type stuff.

But still important.

One of the more interesting things going on at the authority (at least to me) is their decision to take on managing stormwater as well as wastewater and just regular old drinking water.

Last night they awarded a $56,00 contract to a Blue Bell firm to study the borough's aging stormwater system and come up with a master plan for maintaining it and, ultimately, dealing with more stringent regulations coming down from the federal level.

Of course, how that gets paid for may turn out to be a sticky wicket.

Read the Tweets from last night's meeting and you will see what I'm talking about.
