change in the weather

“There’ll Be Some Changes Made” | Another Tony Bennett hit

“For there’s a change in the weather
There’s a change in the sea
So from now on there’ll be in change in me
My walk will be different, my talk and my name
Nothin’ about me is going to be the same
I’m goin’ to change my way of livin’
If that ain’t enough
Then I’ll change the way I strut my stuff
Nobody wants you when you’re old and gray
There’ll be some changes made”

New Land Bank partner, maybe? | This information is from the Municipal Briefs in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster: “The Lancaster County Land Bank Authority aster County Land Bank Authority will meet at 4 p.m. Tuesday, July 23, at its office at 28 Penn Square, second floor, Suite 200. Among the agenda items:

  • Minutes of the June 2019 meeting (That’ll be a revelation, because those minutes are not listed at the Authority’s Website; but the May minutes are and there’s a pretty good run-down on Columbia properties in the minutes.) 
  • New business: (a) resolution approving an intergovernmental agreement between the Lancaster County Land Bank Authority, Manheim Borough and Manheim Central School District; (b) resolution authorizing acquisition of 233, 237 and 239 S. Fifth St. in the borough of Columbia.
  • The next meeting of the board of the Lancaster County Land Bank Authority will be held at 4 p.m. Aug. 27 at 28 Penn Square, second floor, Suite 200.
