Editor’s note: Nice mention of iCreate Cafe in the article as a first time participant. We enjoyed the Carousel of Flavor again this year. The carousel itself is looking great. They are making excellent progress toward completing it. A very large event that showcases Pottstown in a positive light.
POTTSTOWN, PA — In its 10th year, the Carousel of Flavor proved to be a hit again.
“Word’s getting out,” said the event’s chairman, Miles Feather.
A board member of the Pottstown Carousel, the long-term project to bring a carousel as an attraction for the borough, Feather said 20 restaurants took part in the event this year, three more than last year.
That included nine different new establishments from the year before to go along with some of the standbys, such as The Very Best and Grumpy’s.
Editor’s note: We agree!
Pottstown Borough Council has approved the tax break, but if the school board votes no, the plan is nixed.
The three boards that levy property tax — council, school board and county commissioners — must all approve it for the business to relocate to Pottstown. Montgomery County Commissioners have said they will go along with whatever the two local governing bodies decide.
As with council, we urge the school board to vote yes to this proposal as an incentive to business and as a smart move in the longer view of the borough economic development.
