To the Editor:
As a resident of Lower Macungie Township, I assumed as many others have, that our elected officials were doing their job. Recently, when PPL chopped down the 20-year-old pine trees along Sauerkraut Lane, I was stunned the residents hadn't been informed this was going to happen. We were told PPL had the "legal" right to do so. My question to the board of commissioners at the meeting was, why was there no back-up plan? The board president, Ron Eichenberg, shouted me down letting me know my argument was with PPL.
