WEBINAR, NOV 19, 7PM ET, "Build Back Best: A US Industrial Recovery." Join elected officials, labor leaders and economist in this critical discussion. REGISTER HERE:
Last month went to our township's meeting regarding our very very high sewer bill. This is in Berks county and the township is in high debt from prior yrs. I am paying 345.29 per qtr for sewer. My water is separate. So, can Penn Vest help maybe with a new lower loan and longer time for my township. New resident, new home and we are paying for past yrs mess. I also wrote to Attorney General's office and did get a reply back. They cannot help, so just searching for a fix as a concerned citizen and homeowner.
