Thursday, November 29, 2012 by LINDA WOJCIECHOWSKI in Local News

The North Catasauqua Borough Council is considering moving its accounts to a new bank after its current bank, Wells Fargo, began charging excessive service charges.

Borough treasurer Annette Englert reported to council members at their Nov. 14 meeting that since Wells Fargo took over Wachovia, service charges for borough accounts have added up to $6,771.

A proposal with a reduced fee schedule presented to her by National Penn KNBT offers the same banking service for what Englert called "very, very minimal charges."

No decision on A. Duie Pyle facility

In October, residents in Hanover Township's Sherwood Park area swarmed the township's new municipal meeting chambers, protesting the idea that A. Duie Pyle, a trucking company, would build a repair facility on vacant land near the Carmike Theater.

At that time, Attorney Joseph Piperato, who represents A. Duie Pyle, said the company's plan would be explained at a public hearing. That public hearing was held on Nov. 14. Over 50 people crowded into the meeting room.

While the decision to vote on an agreement to develop the FL Smidth property on Front Street was delayed yet again, the issue continues to stir debate for Catasauqua residents. At the Catasauqua Borough Council's workshop session Monday, Councilman Vincent Smith reported that the borough has received the latest revision to the proposed agreement with Weston Solutions, the borough's proposed developer for the property.

According to borough Solicitor Jeffrey Dimmich, the agreement addresses most of the borough's concerns.
