Coplay: Bicycles to be shared with needy

Wednesday, February 26, 2020 by The Press in Columns

Coplay Borough has more than 50 bicycles stored at borough hall.

Police Chief Vincent Genovese reported tracking down the owners is difficult since many of the bikes may have been stolen and then dumped at various sites in the borough, and the owners have not come forward and claimed them. Many of them have been there for several months.

Some of the bikes are in good condition and some need work. The bicycles are expected to be refurbished and given out to needy youths in the community.
