Burker: ‘Neighbors helping neighbors’

Coplay welcomed Catty residents to pool

At the Coplay Borough Council workshop meeting July 2, Councilman Stephen Burker explained how Coplay Borough opened Coplay Parkway Pool to Catasauqua Borough residents when Catasauqua was dealing with a leak at its pool.

“As soon as we were aware that the pool was closed in Catasauqua, I called our pool manager, Tiffany Benson, and gave her authorization to give Coplay’s lowest rate to Catasauqua season pass holders. It was a hot and humid weekend,” he said.

“This is a simple philosophy of neighbors helping neighbors,” Burker said.

The Catasauqua pool reopened July 5.

MacArthur Road business will have seating for 30 patrons, beer to go

Whitehall Township Board of Commissioners unanimously approved a liquor license transfer for an Exxon station at its meeting July 8.

The gas station and convenience store at 2724 MacArthur Road will sell only beer, said Matthew Anderson, attorney for Dunne Manning Stores, which owns the property. It is the third liquor license request that has come before the board since the beginning of the year.

One resident opposed the transfer.

“We don’t need any more places to get liquor in the township,” said LoriAnn Fehnel during the public hearing.
