Delco Council


During public comment, Tinicum resident Zurdi Dobi said the Tinicum Township Commissioners allegedly proposed purchasing the Lazaretto Station historic site as open space at an approximate cost of $2 million. The board allegedly plans to erect a firehouse at the site. Dobi requested that County Council intervene if possible. County Council Chair Tim Murtaugh and Vice Chair Andrew Reilly said Council members are interested in open space, historic preservation and fire safety issues, but do not know what council's role will be in the Tinicum proposal.
