who you are.

Also Wednesday at 7 pm in Municipal Hall, the Historical Area Review Board (HARB) meeting. Since it was very obvious at the Council meeting that many of our borough employees, including our manager and new Codes manager and most of Council, have no idea what HARB does or how they do it, I list this here for anyone who'd like to sit in and educate themselves. I think I'll go too.
