Please excuse this late letter regarding the Mount Oliver Borough Council meeting (November 23, 2010, Mount Oliver borough loses another council member, council seeks answer to Church Avenue problem) edition which I viewed online.
I wanted to say how relieved I am to see the elected officials of Mount Oliver consider forgiving the back taxes on the building take the same position as the school district and county. I am also hopeful the Hilltop Economic Develop Corporation work with the property owner. Perhaps through the HEDC, they can work with the other two taxing bodies to have the taxes forgiven?
This would be the redevelopment of Mount Oliver at its finest!
To have an organization like the Hilltop EDC work to provide programming like this both for its own investments and outside investments is exactly how the redevelopment of Mount Oliver must occur.
I just wanted to commend both the borough working with the HEDC in a constructive and positive way. I also wanted to commend the members of the HEDC for working to strength itself as an organization. This is truly a blessing to witness for small municipalities.
