NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
I read with interest the article printed on Dec. 12 in The News titled “Supervisors partly release Millennium lien.”
Of particular note are the figures $11 million, $3.5 million and $300,000. Apparently six years ago, the township imposed a lien on the park to recover some of the $11 million Neshannock Township spent to install and upgrade public sewer lines at the park.
The other figures are explained in the article, as well.
I moved to Neshannock about 14 years ago, and I have seen my sewer bill triple in that time. Meanwhile, the “park” has attracted only one tenant, and that tenant is not using public sewer lines.
How can any business or organization continue to operate and ask for forgiveness of loans with such a dismal record?
The park is operated by the Lawrence County Economic Development Corp. I wonder who holds this entity responsible for its business practices. I think the citizens and leaders of Lawrence County should be wondering, too.
