Editor’s note: This is LONG overdue! I guess we’re spending $33,000 to appear impartial? In any event this problem needs to be fixed so if this is what it takes…I suppose it’s a small price to pay.
POTTSTOWN, PA — Borough council is set to vote Monday on a proposal to pay a consultant as much as $33,500 to undertake a review of the Codes Department and its operations.
The review comes in the wake of a Mercury report Sept. 23 that the same office is the target of an investigation by a Montgomery County grand jury.
No mention of the investigation was made during Wednesday’s council work session.
Interim Borough Manager Mark Flanders, who is also the borough’s police chief, told council the idea had been floated previously and “I’d like to see it get moving.”
