The December 10 commissioners’ meeting was again well attended, with members of The Susquehanna County Tourism Committee on hand to again discuss the distribution, or lack of tax monies, now dispersed by the commissioners.
Who should decide the color of a house? Though it may seem an insignificant question, the discussion of this occupied a decent chunk of time at the December 8 Montrose Borough meeting. Luther Giordano and Nancy Jean Eddington, it was stated, received a grant to side their house. The color scheme they chose involved brick red siding, Portsmouth blue trim, and white window frames. The Susquehanna County Historical Society contacted the borough secretary, stating that they were working on the historical district, and considered these colors problematic. They asked council to consider stopping the project and requesting that the homeowner consider making his home white to keep in conformity with the town. Copies of various newspaper clippings were given to the borough from the 1920's, detailing a movement to beautify the town by turning it white.
