I must have missed something. Did the Legislature pass a Bill and Gov signed it? Ahhhhh No. BULLSHIT I’M OUT.
Such BS! He and his sidekick need to be removed from office and held accountable for their actions
Fuck him 🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻

I'm amazed at the number of selfish people who can't do something simple for the greater good. Is it really that much of an inconvenience?
I can easily wear a mask for a year or so in order to protect other Americans. If my 97 year old mother-in-law can wear one, I can too.
I don’t call BS. I don’t need a legislative bill to protect others and grateful to those who choose to protect me. I am not selfish. I have no problem with this and I’m in !!
Do you people not listen to experts? Dr. Fauci? I know you are haters of Gov. Wolf and Dr. Levine, but do you not care for other people? The clerk at the store that you go all Ivanka on because store policy is masks required. You know, the one who has asthma but wears a mask for 8 hours a day, and will do your shopping for your privledged ass and deliver it to your car, so you don't have to put on a mask.
People are trying to save lives. Yours and mine. Lets for once listen.
I am totally in. All my relatives in Canada and Europe followed the directives by the scientists and are now in good shape. The economy is doing much better, schools are open again, people wear masks and social distance and they can travel. We on the other hand are stuck here because people are selfish and uninformed.
I wear my mask indoors out of respect for others. Not because Wolfie tells me too! I can easily keep my distance from other people when I am outdoors.
We all have been wearing mask and clearly it is not changing anything if the numbers are going up! So what is the point of it! Everyone in Pennsylvania has been wearing a mask!
Wearing a mask is the right thing to do to protect yourself and others. If people would have done this all along we would not be going backwards.
We are wearing mask and they put up plexiglass everywhere! So where are all these people getting sick from? I would just like to know?! If this is helping?
Wearing a mask is not a political statement. It’s an IQ test.
So literally the same thing I've been doing since March. People seriously don't do this?
Those who are refusing to wear a mask are really going to hate being on a ventilator, or worse, going to a funeral of a loved one who died of covid
The people who say "isn't a law" need to keep up on the news. State Supreme Court ruled on the side of the Governor. He is allowed to mandate this. The legislature has previously allowed different governors emergency powers same as this one.Wear the mask. Get over yourself.
State Senator Judy Schwank said her bill to repeal the state's Fireworks Act of 2017 is inspired by municipalities, police and fire departments across the state that are unable to mitigate resident complaints about fireworks. ... See MoreSee Less
Who’s Judy Schwank? The exact useless opposite of Mike O’Pake. She’s worthless
Can't wait till it passes it will be nice to have the volume at a normal number, and no fireworks all long.
Do you honestly think that that's going to stop anyone from letting them off? None of you guys enjoyed fireworks when you were younger?
And the Karens rejoiced.
A total outrage and another nanny state impulse.
Tammy Schmehl, did you see this?
All Judy needs to do is to outlaw the construction of Sheetz stores and The Exeter Informant Comment Section will go silent.
Fantastic! Thank you!
"Oh thank god" "thank you" "this is great news" say all the Karen's that do nothing but complain on facebook neighborhood pages about the fireworks instead of trying to have respectful adult conversations with their neighbors about why they would appreciate limiting the fireworks. Yall do realize that fireworks have 3 times the sales tax on them to help with revenue for that state. They wont give that up, just like they refuse to allow privatized liquor sales 🤷🏼♀️
I hate the constant fireworks. They spook my dog who then tries to jump on me. I bleed easily so this is always dangerous. Let alone the cannons that go off all over and wake me. Ban them please.
No she won't she don't even answer emails.
How about focusing on
more important stuff than fireworks!!!
It won’t pass , you know how much money the state is making on the higher taxes on the fireworks . Wolf wants the revenue
Every time somebody says "Karen" here in the comments take a drink.🥴
Bullshit I for one am glad she is doing it. If you saw how my doggy shakes when these Dick heads set off those loud fireworks. You would know what I mean. Not to mention the GI who has PTSD! Have some consideration and respect!!!!!!!
WHEN WHEN WHEN??????????????? It cannot be soon enough!
It should never been done in the first place.
Law or no law your going to hear booms my ass is not stop but hey im in a field out in middle of no where so enjoy the show folks forget your law in a free country move
Things in pa are falling apart and this is what she is focusing on. SMH. What a small mind she has!
It's becoming fewer and father apart, people who don't know any military people with ptsd, or people who care for animals. They only care for themselves n their ignorance...... It's rampid!!!
This was a bad idea from the beginning, sort of like a government trying run a golf course.
Once again, happened to Aquabilities, they should make it a community pool like Maple Springs
Thanks Gov Wolf!
Didn't know it was there. Too bad,
This is so sad 😢. I LOVED it there!!
Ridiculous to blame Democrats.
This really sucks! They taught my kiddo to swim super young and she was diving withing 3 months. I will forever be grateful to the instructors and the facility!
If they accepted medical prescriptions from people who need to just water walk and people who need water therapy it would have been a good help. Probably a paperwork pain, but they would have made money. I pray that they can somehow reopen.
They aren’t reopening. These places are barely viable normally. #CoronaConsequences
This is so sad! Maybe if they'd increased the membership a bit, they could have stayed afloat. Membership here was much less than other fitness clubs....except for that $10 a month one.
This brings me to why we need a ymca
Too many businesses are led by people who just love what they are doing. They don't take big salaries but it comes to a point that they cannot keep silently funding their own operation.
Was this known as aqua abilities ?
Omg. We loves having pool parties there. Smh. They should really turn it into a community pool.
My two grandchildren learned to swim there
I was eagerly awaiting them opening, I am beyond say. I paid $65. , possibly $70 when it was aquabilities. I’d be happy to pay more.
Told you they do not care what we have to say.
Public meeting are absolutely useless and this will keep happening every couple of years they refuse to do anything about THEIR spending!
omg!. Of course they did
wolf was supposed to change this. No more school taxes. What was he doing all this time?
A 6 month school year this past year, how could they not have remedied any budget overflow going into this year for yet another increase? Other school districts who have also looked into tax increases for new schools, even tabled their increases due to Covid and the awareness of their Townships overall economic status. Some, if any haven't even resolved their own wallets, from Covid and here come the Township to raise the taxes, and start dipping into it! Absolutely disgusting, and shame on you!
Wow, I don't even live in Exeter I live in mt penn but I have seen post about your taxes being raised about 5 times in the past year!!!!! What is the billion dollars for!!!!
Come on down!
Absolute disgrace that they would vote for an increase during this covid era....embarrassing that they got voted in and can vote for this increase....get ready for the next teachers contract as obviously 6 are puppets
How in the HELL can they raise taxes for schools that aren’t even being used?! Their REAL angle is maintaining state of the art sports programs so kids can get sports scholarships. In MY day you had to be SMART to be awarded a scholarship NOT athletic!
This township is a joke
Welcome to Exeter....
Thanks guys! Unbelievable
There was a full year of school. Teachers have worked every day since the pandemic made it impossible for school building to remain open.
Thank your Republican led Senate.
Did you really mean to say that Exeter residents will pay $3360 in taxes for every $100,000 of assessed property value?
You cannot be serious right now. Why look for other solutions when the easiest is to just milk more money from the homeowners. I hope each one of you have a hard time showing your face in the Twp. You are an embarrassment.
No public comments made during tonight's meeting.
This township is getting to much money and not doing anything and fixing anything that needs to be
Who were the 3 that voted no? They at least have a clue. 🙄
Great the renters in the district get free rides while we pay more. I never even had a child in the district.
Why is McLendon NOT Telling the Truth about last year's tax increase. SMH. She can't remember how much she raised taxes last year! Hmmm
Don’t worry, it won’t be improved. We’ll keep increasing taxes, selling off assets, and won’t pass any benefit on to the residents. There isn’t a single thing I can think of that the township has done to improve any aspect of our community.
The structures were built to last, not like modern day pavilions.
Instead of making improvements to the playground to make it safe and usable, they tore it down completely. It's so sad that the playground so many kids grew up playing on has just vanished. It won't be long before the whole area is flattened.
Wtf this board absolutely sucks. Rise taxes tare down parks. What is there to do. Can we atleast get a new bridge to cross the creek from the jr high to happy landings.
After they stripped the brush from the banks and removed the logs from the stream for aesthetics, the stream was ruined by erosion. The holes filled with silt and the banks continue to erode. Now they don’t even stock the stream with trout. No one from the fish commission will tell me why they stopped stocking this area after decades. Upgrades must consider the environmental impact and the multiple recreational uses of the resources.
Wow, just ridiculous...
Maybe they can build a bank, pharmacy, and a cookie cutter housing development there
Wow. Did they really think that after initially building this, nobody would have to update it or continue to make it look decent??? Fox Theaters went downhill bc the owners decided not to update and invest in it. The bowling alley, same story. Now this? Yes people, if you want our area to be a place to live and play in....then you have to invest in it!!!
It's outlived it's usefulness? To whom? TO YOU? Who are you speaking for? Not the current demographics of Exeter, for sure.
So their answer, to them not maintaining things, is just tear it down? All things that are built require some kind of maintenance, if you do nothing for years, anything will fall into disrepair. The quote from the incoming manager, Jeff Bartlett, “It’s outlived its usefulness. The fact that it’s not in the township and our police don’t monitor it; it’s ripe for vandalism, It’s really more of a liability than a benefit for our township any longer.”, completely blows my mind. How many other things has Exeter Township done that had no benefit to the community, i.e. buying the Promenade? The park provides a place outdoors for children to play, as well as provide a space for all to use. Because they willfully neglect the park it is just going to get tossed out! If the township kept up on the maintenance they could be renting out the pavilion for use, which would make money for the township. I understand that the park gets vandalized and that costs money. But I bet there would be no problem from Central Berks Regional Police if the Exeter Township Police Department patrolled the park as well. I know both forces can't be there 24/7 but I bet they each would appreciate the help of other department. The actions, or should I say inaction, of the supervisors blow my mind.
I would bet that more people use the park than the country club.
They need the cops over at Lorane EVERY NIGHT! Someone has left the entrance open , it's summer , do I need to say more? The township took down the park rules signs at the WALK IN ENTRANCES and it's a dog poop heaven everywhere now! The kids have removed all the covid signs and loosen ivy is growing everywhere, with all the cameras that have been set up there by our tax dollars , why isn't this park rules being enforced? It's a matter of time for this park if they don't start paying attention , now the residences around the park with wells have potentially contaminated ground water .
Nothing to do for families need a bowling alley
My family has lived here in the townhouses for the last 19 yrs , I raised my two sons here and it was a wonderful place to live with the park , egg hunts, schools , etc right there. everything was so convenient.
it was a beautiful playground/park/pavilion because we cleaned up whenever we “PAID” to use the pavilion and we also respected the property because we lived here and that’s the way we were raised. Once everyone got wind of it that wasn’t from the Exeter/St Lawrence township , it became a huge party place and not many were paying for the use of pavilions which p*ssed me off because I always paid for it when I used it.
I have a Birdseye view of the park and I have let the police know many times of things going on down there. I believe that it should have been gated and used by those that live here in the township just like trout run. It would still be standing if it was 😕 how many times do we have to see things get destroyed and then torn down and never built back up...if in the beginning you would have said to yourself ...how can we keep this cared for and intact for years to come , then we wouldn’t be in this predicament now. We have many parks in our townships Exeter/ Saint Lawrence and if we want them to stay nice they should be gated and used by those that live in the community. We should of course only have one in each township for open public use.
I will say we do have some people from our own area that have not taken care of the park and I’m sure took part in destroying it too. Let’s think about prevention long-term. 🙏🏼🌍🌈
Exeter really is going to crap !!!!
I’ve lived here for 24 years raised my children and to see how little this township does anymore is disheartening
Exeter mayor an board has got to go an now!!!!!!
Who is in charge of Parks and recreation? You can tell Joe Seltzer is not here anymore. When he was here, everything was nice. Look at the nice May Day we used to have. Maybe we need to get Joe back!
Maggie Mirenda. Very well said
I heard you can have picnics and swim in the creek now over at the RCC, it's for the residences in the whole township!
What are they doing there?
Shame how this township has gone down...in just the last 12 yrs that I have been here, all I see is it going down..I can only imagine how it must feel for those who have lived here all their lives...investing in a township your whole life and this is how it ends up, no amenities, high taxes, shame, but what next, the schools...smh
Ashlee Shumaker but I love this park 🙄
They have been wanting to extend Elm street straight through to Perkiomen for over 20 years but have always caught community resistance because of the park and it becoming a speed zone. How do you solve it? You let the park go to s*!t so you have to "tear everything down". Then you can build your road.
The last three times I was at that park the basketball courts were the reason we left. This was before the playground was taken down. The language and the disregard for the courts and the nets, not utilizing the trash cans.... it’s a shame. That was a great playground. We wonder why our kids don’t play outside.... there is no place for them to go and take away what little is left. ☹️
Yes, a park needs to be maintained and the township needs to keep a eye on it! Duh! This certainly was in the budget. Are you telling me that Exeter couldn't handle the job of maintaining and keep an eye on their park? Honestly how are we supposed to have confidence in them for bigger tougher issues, if this was too much for you?!
