HONESDALE – Aqua Pennsylvania (Aqua) has announced that, in 2018, it invested $37 million of water and wastewater infrastructure upgrades throughout its Honesdale and White Haven divisions.

The capital improvements were made to rebuild and replace aging water and wastewater infrastructure throughout Carbon, Lackawanna, Lehigh, Luzerne, Monroe, Northampton, Schuylkill, Susquehanna, Pike, Wayne and Wyoming counties.

Pennsylvania has among the highest state and local tax rates in the U.S., according to a recently released independent analysis.

According to WalletHub’s study, Pennsylvania placed 49th out of 51 in a ranking of the 50 states and Washington, D.C., meaning its residents shoulder the third largest tax burden in the country.

The commonwealth’s effective state and local tax rates on median U.S. households was 13.78 percent, meaning on average workers pay nearly 14 percent of their salaries in state and local taxes.  That's similar to but higher than nearby states New York, 13.74 percent, and Ohio, 13.05 percent.

PMREMS Subscription Drive 2019

Pocono Mountain Regional Emergency Medical Services (PMREMS), a nonprofit organization, would like to first thank you for last year's support. Your membership and donations truly make a difference.

Last year, PMREMS responded to over 6900 emergency calls showing an increasing need for our services. As call volume increases, so do operating costs which include building and vehicle maintenance, equipment purchases, and training classes for our medical professionals. To help offset these costs and continue to give the qual ity of care you deserve, we turn to our community for help.

A few months ago, I filed a right-to-know request asking for an asset inventory of the township maintenance department of any item valued at $500 or above. 

I reached out to York Rake, the manufacturer, asking for information about our town’s 1987 HTR Street Broom.  

One would be forgiven for thinking our town's equipment being too old to get parts for anymore, or that we loaned it to another township.  I learned not only does Barrett Township actually own a street sweeper, but it’s even a current model.  Below is a transcript of my email thread with York Rake.
