Admission for Fish Hatchery



This blogger has learned that the Administration is contemplating charging admission to the Fish Hatchery. A rite of passage in Allentown has been for a father to take his children to this treasure, built by General Trexler. I suppose all the new asphalt in Cedar Park cost more than expected.

Now that is really the whoring of Allentown.

You go Ed! Give the people of Allentown the Bronx Cheer once again.

Next I suppose Hamilton Street will become a toll road.

Okay, so I am perplexed!! What does an ice cream scoop have to do with the Fish Hatchery?

Bill said...

What a pathetic idea. What is the deal with the scoop?

Cute!

How about toll booths for our city parks?
There is no end to these schemes for creating profitable government.
Hold off the big tax increases until next year - and this year raise all city related fees as well as creating new fees for city services and activities...

Where the hell is the so called Trexler Trust? Shouldn't they be putting a stop to this travesty, or have they been in bed with the administration so long they know no other way?

Chris -

It would be the latter.

To charge admission to Fish Hatchery will require destroying more trees to add more blacktop. When will it stop! It takes about 20 minutes to visit the hatchery. Charge for 20 minutes? Who is he kidding.

MM,
Re: the "scoop" symbol-If you had just added words over your scoop photo, think that might have helped readers get your clever point.

The cost of fencing will erase any profit from charging school students per fish hatchery visit. This plan will destroy the park view of this special place with gates and
fencing.

"A rite of passage..."

...my dad took me to the Fish Hatchery on more than one occasion when I was a little boy.

Just another example of how you kick butt the way nobody else, or so it would seem, can.

Did Mozart ever stop the show to stand up and explain his genius to the audience?

I wasn't there, but I think the people either got it or they didn't.

Can someone with legal experience double-check the General's will as to whole issue of charging for park access? Isn't a small portion of this hatchery on Salisbury land?

A lawyer should check into this and stop this stupid mayor in his tracks. Enough is enough! Impeach him!

Ironic thing is that there IS a lawyer on the Board of the Trexler Trust. However, he was also Pawlowski's campaign chairman.

That lawyer also has visions of running for Mayor one day.

Funny, huh? Only in Allentown.
