Here is an email Township Manager Cleland sent to the Lower Merion commissioners on February 11:

 

Commissioners: 

 

Staff has been in discussions with the Ardmore Library Board, the Township Engineer, and Vitetta Architects to explore another potential elevator configuration option for the Ardmore Library by locating the needed new elevator outside the existing building footprint on the southeast, left front corner as you approach the front door.

HPIM6038 Susan in her post here captured all the links to this tragedy today.

RIP Officer Sean Quinn. I do not as you know post about police very often. But in this case I make an exception because this was a heck of a nice guy and familiar face in the community.

Sherry Tillman, Executive Director of First Friday Main Line asked me to dig out a photo from my First Friday Main Line archives because Officer Quinn was part of quite a few First Friday Main Lines - he would show up with "McGruff" sometimes for the Happy Howl O' Ween event in October.

This is a message to the owners of Ardmore West Strip Shopping Center, to voice some complaints.

 

Complaints:

The trash bins on the sidewalks in front of the donut shop and the Rite Aid are *always* full and overflowing on the sidewalk. I mean always, daytime, evenings, weekdays, weekends.

And there's always an accumulation of cigarette butts in front of the donut shop (coffee, donuts and cigarettes) and the rite-aid store front.

And there's typically/usually one or more cars parked where they shouldn't be, in the narrow alley-way strip between the donot shop and Primo's hoagir shop.

I've been meaning to take some pictures on the last few passes through, but I keep forgetting.

"You get half now, half after the dog is gone!"

I got this note from the township today:

Moody's Investors Service and Standard & Poor's have both reconfirmed Lower Merion Township's Triple-A Bond Credit Rating with a stable outlook, the highest rating attainable. Should municipal bond market conditions remain favorable, the Township plans to hold a competitive bond sale on February 20th, and seek approximately $10 million in new money to fund capital improvements in 2013-2014.

"We are thrilled to once again go to market with the strongest of ratings," said Dean Dortone, Chief Financial Officer. "We anticipate that many lenders will respond to our bond sale with very competitive interest rates - likely the lowest offered by the market that day."

Craig LaBan ate at the new Saint James restaurant in Suburban Square and came away unhappy.  Personally, I hearitly dislike the music they blast into the courtyard, and the fact that their menu is not posted where you can see it from outside.

I saw a post from 2009 with a new comment. Thinking it was spam, I went to check it out. It was from poster hamncheez (one of my favorites from the glory days of Radnor's time of escaping skuldudgery and deceit AKA The Bashore Years):

Bashore gets a pension?

At the next Radnor BOC meeting on the agenda will be discussion and approval of a settlement agreement between Radnor Township, Treasurer John E. Osborne, Former Township Manager David A. Bashore and Kelly F. Bashore (see document link below).
