An environmental study of potential problems at an old service station on West College Avenue has delayed the start of the project to extend it toward the M&M/Mars factory. At its meeting on April 15, Elizabethtown Borough Council authorized spending $81,000 — which was not budgeted in the $3.3 million project — to determine the extent of any issues.
A prior environmental study concluded that underground storage tanks at the service station might have caused problems. It did not reveal the extent of, or even if there were, problems. The additional money that Borough Council authorized spending will pay for a second phase study that will do just that.
The work is required by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, and the borough must follow regulations from the state Department of Environmental Protection.

Cool, I thought as I[Read more...]
The supply of dentists is unique when compared to the supply of other health care providers. A lot of interest has been afforded to the supply of physicians and nurses and whether the future supply will be able to keep up with demand. These are very important issues. However, the supply of physicians and nurses is increasing over time and the question is whether this increase will be sufficient to meet the demand. In contrast, the supply of dentists has recently begun an absolute decline, making dentists the only provider type whose numbers are actually declining.
