I see where Marple Twp received a $3,250,000.00 grant from the Redevelopment Assistance Capital program last year to demolish and construct a new firehouse for Broomall. Great support from their officials.

It's amazing how much of our tax dollars go to redevelopment. Do you know if Aston applied for funds yet? I see the sun center was in round 1 this year. Neumann got a bundle as well.

What Chester Twp does with their money really doesn't concern me but at least Neumann used their money for the intended purpose.

Not really positive how grants work. Government hold onto the money until progress is shown or do the towns get the money no matter what and have to use it within a certain period of time?
