Not-So-Mighty Quinn Did Not Stop Council Meeting

As part of her Mayor's Report for March, Pottstown Mayor
Stephanie Henrick, rear, reported that she was interviewed
recently by fourth graders in Girl Scout Troop 71220 
for their Inside Government Badge.
Winter Storm Quinn (not sure I'll get used to naming snow storms, but it does make it easier to keep track of them) turned out to be a dud around here.

So the quick version of last night's council meeting might be: "The weather was nasty and the meeting was short."

But I suppose that description is not terribly informative in the news department.

Perhaps the most important item on the agenda was the introduction of another community group trying to improve neighborhood conditions in the First Ward and beyond.

They are called Pottstown Community Action and they are backed, financially and organizationally, but Habitat for Humanity.

They have already organized several block clean-ups and will participate in Habitat's Rock the Block event on April 21.

Last month, at the urging of Councilman Dennis Arms, council voted to send a letter to the zoning board opposing a proposed electronic sign for 625 N. Charlotte St.

This month, with Arms absent, attorney Ken Picardi appeared before council to try to change their minds.

We'll find out Monday if he was successful.

Council appeared to be favorably inclined towards a small expansion of the dining hall at The Hill School and the construction of several townhomes in the 500 block of Lincoln Avenue, both of which were recommended for approval by the planning commission.

And with that, here are the Tweets from the meeting:

  1. Double Entendre reference to Quinn the Eskimo (Bob Dylan) didn't go unnoticed.
