|Mayor Bob McMahon and Media Borough to lose millions|
It should also be noted that BLCC in good faith to the community and taxpayers, offered to discuss a one-way option that Media Borough Council was telling the community was a compromise necessary to move forward. Borough Council never even addressed the offer. In fact, for months they wouldn't even discuss the bridge due to the "contempt of court" petition filed against them. It may now potentially cost the borough, businesses and residents millions of dollars.
As this is shaping up, the money allocated by Penndot and a state grant totaling in the millions of dollars will be most likely be re-allocated for other projects in the state. It's unclear where the money will come from to clean this 17 year mess up or how long it'll take, but today that now became the Media Taxpayer's problem.
