How's That Northampton County Parking Deck?

So when is Northampton County going to repair the aging parking deck located outside the courthouse? Every time it rains, bits and pieces are chipped away. At last night's county council meeting, Executive John Stoffa stated that $1.5 million in bond proceeds has been set aside for repairs, slated to start in Spring. He estimates it will extend the parking deck's life by ten years.

Is this the same deck that Stoffa claimed was unsafe four years ago? He told people it was unsafe to park on but let it go for four years.

He is the model of competence.

In April 2008, CMX told Northampton County Council that its 32 year-old parking deck needed $6 million in repairs and had a useful life of 2 more years. Stoffa got the cost of repair down to $1.5 MM, and it will be done in the Spring. Stoffa has acted responsibly and frugally.

Check the records and see he said it was unsafe in 2006, needlessly scaring hundreds of employees. It took him four years to actually say what he said years ago,"we will put it in a bond issue". WOW.

The $186,000 spaces are right on the mark. Thank Council for holding that up. But CMX got their nice check. Do some digging and you will find a very famous or infamous past county oficial involved in the CMX deal, oh yea!

I did check the records. Stoffa never said anything about safety. He did hire an engineering firm that expressed an opinion when I said it did, in April 2008, not four years ago (as you said last night), not in 2006 (as you say now). Also, the notion that he proposed $186k parking places is laughable. The garage he considered would have included several county departments, a fact you choose to ignore.

You just repeat lies here.

To Ohare checking "the records", is asking Stoffa and company if something is accurate.

You would have been perfect for Munich. Hitler would have loved you.

I wnet back and looked at county council minutes to see what exactly Stoffa said and when he said it. As usual, the truth is completely different from what you claim. And of course, you slam the person who points to the truth.
