The County wants to waste, yes waste, tens of thousands of dollars to have a study on traffic. I can save you the money.

Penn Dot doesn't have the money to change them and there isn't a way to go around Muncy that is feasible or, cost-effective. Now, go back to spending our tax dollars on bridge repairs where we can actually see a benefit of the dollars spent.

While it may be true that Muncy doesn't gain very much from the gas impact fees, they do profit from the increase in local income and sales taxes paid by the employees of the service companies based in Muncy. They are better off in Muncy to reap the benefits than Towanda is.
