The Show Will Go On

Pottstown Borough Council Wednesday night discussed billing the committee an additional $5,000.00 for police overtime.

We appreciate the heads up from the Mercury, (click for the story) and look forward to a solution that will maintain the security of the event, help the Borough budget, and be sustainable given the committee’s fundraising history.  Latest story is here.

UPDATE: The City Council of Philadelphia voted to “emancipate” it’s parade committees from police bills.  For details visit:
