Bad government has to be condemned but that means good government has to be praised.
Dead tree the unit block of North Rolling Road in Springfield, Pa. became an eyesore and a bit of danger. The trees were on government property — a township-owned traffic island and land belong to SEPTA.
Township officials were notified on Aug. 19.
The spruce on the traffic island came down on Aug. 22.
The SEPTA oaks came down today, Oct. 1.
Kudos to Jim Merkin, Mike Puppio and especially commissioner Bob Layden.
