Council gets earful from citizens

TOWER CITY – Members of Tower City Borough Council heard from the public about some recent decisions in the borough they weren’t happy with.
Several of the speakers came out to the Nov. 14 meeting to speak about several recent the decisions that were made by the council.
The longest discussion came from a landlord with a tenant near the Tower City Fire Company. Recently several parking spots in that area were designated as parking for firefighters during an emergency.
The landlord said that the move landlocked his tenant.
“He’s homebound and has nurses come take care of him, there’s only room for one car in his driveway,” the landlord said. “I really think you need to reconsider this.”
“I don’t think we realized that it would be that much initially,” council president Bruce Schneck said. “We can have our chief of police look at it again.”
Another resident, George Shuey, asked about the new parking restrictions at School Square, where several churches call home.
