Wednesday was a long one as borough council meetings go.

Starting at 6:30 p.m. with two conditional use hearings and now winding up until 9:30.

There were lots of things discussed, but the major ones in no particular order were:

  • What to do about expiring fire services agreements; 
  • Whether a cell tower should be allowed at the wastewater treatment plant; 
  • Whether to re-name Cross Street for Newstell Marable;
  • Whether to renew the lease with Fly-Elite to operate Pottstown airport;
  • Whether to move forward with a new LERTA district;
  • Whether to finance new emergency radios from the county and own them or allow fire companies to buy them from the borough;
  • And a few others.

You can read all about them in the Tweets below and in upcoming stories in The Mercury, your local newspaper for more than 75 years.
