Disallowed | Lancaster city rejects Airbnb proposal. “In his experience, renting houses on the site was more lucrative, (property owner landlord David Aviles) said.

news release | “The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission today released a Management Efficiency Investigation report for Columbia Water Company evaluating the implementation of recommendations from a May 2018 Focused Management and Operations Audit Report.”

And what’s at the Water Company’s Website | Not much new; certainly not the Management Efficiency Investigation report for Columbia Water Company nor the Columbia Water’s implementation plan.

Never give up | Lancaster’s “art” foes are taking it to court … just like Columbia Concerned Citizens Association did. – Lancaster Online [NOTE: Turns out you can fight city hall for its questionable decisions and actions, but it is so expensive.
